Happy Monday Betties! We were browsing the web earlier and stumbled across this list of the “22 Rules to Life.” We liked it so much we thought we would share it with you.
1.) Never stop thinking. This is important. If someone ever says to you “you need to stop thinking so much,” call them ignorant in your head and keep thinking deeper. It is this mentality that breeds stupid people. Your mind is the most important thing you have, if you stop using it, it will atrophy.
2.) Stare into space blankly and don’t mentally punish yourself for doing it, even if it is for that split second.
3.) Don’t be afraid to talk about anything. You shouldn’t be afraid of reality.
4.) Everyone is a hypocrite.
5.) You are all original. Every life experience is case-sensitive and unique. Every time you wake up or quote someone else, you are becoming more you than anyone has ever been.
6.) Do pointless things. Don’t actively restrain or hide yourself from the redundant.
7.) Stop rushing. Shut up and embrace the sound of silence.
8.) Religion shouldn’t be taught, it should be found. No one should tell you what to believe except for you.
9.) Talking to yourself is healthy. Is there anyone you have more in common with?
10.) There is no such thing as time. The sun never sets or rises. Days and years don’t exist. There is only your life.
11.) We will always be in a transitional phase. Look outside and know that everything will be replaced at some point. This existence is temporary.
12.) It’s not half empty or half full. It’s half a glass.
13.) Every now and then, you take something that you see everyday and try to see it in a different light. Renew its resistance.
14.) Be happy, but don’t force it.
15.) You will always succeed in trying.
16.) We are all crazy.
17.) We are all about as similar as we are different.
18.) Ideas are about as valuable as people.
19.) Words will always be just words. Love is just another four letter word, only the feeling is real.
20.) Ask a child for advice. They may not know much, but they know what’s important.
21.) Prove you’re alive. Do anything from dancing in the supermarket to taking an impulse trip to another country. Remind the world you are still here.
22.) Don’t take anything seriously.
Check up on these every now and then, a little reminder and thought never hurt anyone.
