Here are a few little ‘gems’ from Judy Viitanen and the PRimage team. They help us … hope they help you too!
Remember the purpose of life is to develop loving relationships.
Remember the total result of all of your ambition is to be happy in your own head.
Listen to those older than you are. They’re getting fewer in number every day.
If you can’t be with the one you love; love the one you’re with
Giggle with children.
Read every day. But not out loud.
Write little e-mail notes saying nice things to good friends expecting nothing in return.
Cry during movies. But only during the soppy bits. And do it quietly.
Stuff happens – true contentment comes from reacting positively to it.
Happiness only comes when you accept the things you cannot influence.
Make friends with freedom and uncertainty.
Separate opinion from fact but don’t let facts get in the way of a good story.
And finally, not our words, but a quote from ‘Desiderata’, by Max Ehrmann – which Judy finds an inspirational, simple and positive credo for life:
“With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy”
