Things to Remember in 2010

My best friend Marianne sent me an email this morning on what are the things to keep and remember in 2010. Here they are:


  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
  • Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactures in plants...
  • Live with the 3 E's - Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy.
  • Make time to pray if you're religious.
  • Play more games.
  • Read more books than you did in 2009.
  • Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes a day.
  • Sleep for 8 hours.
  • Take 10-30 minutes walk daily. And while you walk, smile.


  • Don't compare your life to others. you have no idea what their journey is all about.
  • Don't have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead, invest your energy in the positive present moment.
  • Don't overdo. Keep your limits.
  • Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
  • Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.
  • Dream more while you are awake.
  • Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
  • forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner with her/his mistakes in the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
  • Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
  • Make peace with your past so it will not spoil the present.
  • No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
  • Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last forever.
  • Smile and laugh more.
  • You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.


  • Call your family often.
  • Each day give something good to others.
  • Forgive everyone for everything.
  • Spend time time w/ people over the age of 70 and under the age of 6.
  • Try to make at least 3 people smile each day.
  • What other people think of you is none of your business.
  • Your job will not take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.


  • Get rid of anything that is not useful, beautiful or joyful.
  • God heals everything.
  • However good or bad the situation is, it will change.
  • No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
  • The best is yet to come.
  • When you awake alive every morning, thank god for it.
