something to think about

My Mom sent me this a few weeks ago and it's to good to keep to myself, so I am passing it forward.
Thirteen Favorite Habits That Help me Live a Happy Life

April 14, 2009

  1. The habit of beginning each day with prayer and Bible study.
  2. Laugh, laugh and then laugh some more! Someone asked Jane what she liked about Paul best, and she said "He makes me laugh."
  3. Live every day and every hour, with passion and enthusiasm. We are only going this way once. Why not take a big bite out of it.
  4. Positive Thinking! It has a million-plus benefits. It gives power to turn the worst situation into victory!
  5. The habit of giving joyously and generously.
  6. The habit of spontaneity - thinking of it - doing it - carpe diem - seize the moment!
  7. The habit of entering every day, every hour, without giving mental recognition to the possibility of defeat.
  8. The habit of forgiving - always - everyone - quickly. Do not waste time in un-forgiveness.
  9. The habit or optimism - seeing the best in people and the best in circumstances, situations, and the best for the future.
  10. The habit of having an attitude of gratitude. giving thanks daily, keeping your eyes and mind focused on God as the provider.
  11. Being an encourager. Helping people feel better, stronger - tell them they can accomplish their goals and dreams. Be supportive.
  12. Live life as an inverted paranoid. I think the whole world and everyone i meet is scheming and conspiring to do only good things for me.
  13. Have the hobby habit. My hobbies are reading, biking, walking, flying, swimming, collecting, and much more.
I don't want to die until not one thing God has planned for me would be left undone.
