Looking for things to put on pinterest I came across shabbychicks blog and fell in love with these rules to live by. Needless to say I’ve added a few of my own. Feel free to live by them, or not, but just make sure you LIVE!

Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good

When in doubt, just take the next small step

Life is too short to waste time hating anyone

Resolve to 

Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch

Pay off your credit cards every month

Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone

Climb a tree 

Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck…or not
When it comes to chocolate, and anything HELLO KITTY, resistance is futile
Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present
Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about
If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it
Take a deep breath. It calms the mind
Sometimes it’s okay to to be pissed off

Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful
Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger
It’s never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else
When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer
Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, and wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special
Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to dye your hair purple
Smile at someone today. Better yet, find something to compliment them about
Frame every so-called disaster with these words ‘In five years, will this matter?’
Always choose life
Forgive everyone everything
What other people think of you is none of your business
Time heals almost everything. Give time time
Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does
Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need
Growing old beats the alternative — dying young
All that truly matters in the end is that you loved and were loved
Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere
If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone elses, we’d grab ours back
The best is yet to come
Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift

You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree

It’s OK to let your children see you cry

We can’t all be pretty but we can all be beautiful
Over prepare and then go with the flow
No one is in charge of your happiness but you
However good or bad a situation is, it will change

Don’t audit life. Show up and make the most of it now

Your children get one childhood
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up

And however shitty life gets remember…
