Enjoy Life More

Ok, so for those of you that know me, and those that don't, I have had some major challenges during the last 24 months. 

Challenges can often lead to depressing and negative thoughts which is definitely NOT who I am.  I decided to do something about this so I picked up a book in the airport called "The Happiness Project".

If you haven't read this book I would highly recommend it.  You don't need to be depressed to appreciate it, you just have to want to improve the existing quality of each and every day.

I personally love Grechen's 12 Commandments and in particular, #3.  This is simple and very good advice, simple being the operative word.  Gretchen's Commandments are listed below.

I'd love to know what you think.

Here are her Twelve Commandments:
1. Be Gretchen.
2. Let it go.
3. Act the way I want to feel.
4. Do it now.
5. Be polite and be fair.
6. Enjoy the process.
7. Spend out.
8. Identify the problem.
9. Lighten up.
10. Do what ought to be done.
11. No calculation.
12. There is only love
