    I found this on a friend's Facebook page and enjoyed it. All these points seem simple and practical enough, but it never hurts to be reminded especially when you're facing tough times. Reading this certainly made me feel positive icon_smile.gif

    I'm guilty of #8, especially foot-in-mouth moments. I berate myself for years/decades how I could be so stupid/insensitive.

    "9. Stop trying to buy happiness. – Many of the things we desire are expensive. But the truth is, the things that really satisfy us are totally free – love, laughter and working on our passions."

    What if my passion costs ~$150/hour? (flying) Fortunately I get paid for it now, but flight training was fucking outrageously expensive! icon_lol.gif

    13. Stop getting involved in relationships for the wrong reasons. – Relationships must be chosen wisely. It’s better to be alone than to be in bad company. There’s no need to rush. If something is meant to be, it will happen – in the right time, with the right person, and for the best reason. Fall in love when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely.


    A-fucking-men. I see this way too often. I've been guilty of it in the past as well.

    I hope there's cushions at the bottom of this fall. Otherwise, there's gonna be blood everywhere.

    #32 Stop spending so much time Grindr-ing/A4A-ing, texting, twittering and 4squareing that you miss out on a real conversation and might just find a good soul in the person next to you on the bus, at the lunch place, subway, on a date.
