What is a good life?

Well, I guess it depends on who you ask.

A good life can mean different things to different people. And even though we might all perceive a good life differently, there are certain things that can help us to craft that a good life for ourselves and for those we love. And I call these things, the 10 commandments of a good life.

  1. Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.

  2. Live your life and forget your age.

  3. I’ve seen better days, but I’ve also seen worse. I don’t have everything I want, but I do have all I need. I woke up with some aches and pains, but I woke up. My life may not be perfect but I am blessed.

  4. Spending time with children is more important than spending money on children.

  5. Putting your phone away and paying attention to those talking to you? There’s an App for that – it’s called “RESPECT”

  6. Albert Einstein once said “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it’s stupid”

  7. Two things to remember in life – “Take care of your thoughts when you are alone” and “Take care of your words when you are with people”

  8. Whoever said that diamonds are a girl’s best friend never owned a dog.

  9. Nature is cheaper than therapy.

  10. I don’t have time to worry about who doesn’t like me. I’m too busy loving the people who love me.
