I have to share...

I found this on someone elses blog this morning. I just had to share it with all of you! It really got my thinking, in the right perspective this early morning. I was having trouble getting onto blogger. I am so happy that the problem is fixed! I don't think I have missed these many days blogging in a while. I hope everyone is having a happy summer morning! :) Twenty Ways to Lead a Happier Life

1. Compliment three people every day.
2. Watch a sunrise at least once a year.
3. Be the first to say "hello".
4. Live beneath your means.
5. Treat everyone like you want to be treated.
6. Never give up on anybody. Miracles happen.
7. Forget the Joneses.
8. Never deprive someone of hope. It may be all he has.
9. Pray not for things, but for wisdom and courage.
10. Be tough-minded but tenderhearted.
11. Be kinder than necessary.
12. Don't forget, a person's greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated.
13. Keep your promises.
14. Learn to feel cheerfulness, even when you don't feel like it.
15. Remember that overnight success usually takes about 15 years.
16. Leave everything better than you found it.
17. Remember that winners do what losers don't want to do.
18. When you arrive to work in the morning, let the first thing you say brighten everyone's day.
19. Don't rain on other people's parades.
20. Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them.

Love this list. I especially love that it takes 15 years for over night success. Good to know--I am feeling totally behind on that (since we are still in school!!)
