  • Something to Think About.....

    With all the BS going on within the forums as of late, I thought I'd post a little something to get some people thinking. Enjoy!! I printed this and each member of my household has their own copy.

    Ten rules for being human

    1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but
    it's yours to keep for the entire period.

    2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time
    informal school called, "life".

    3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of
    trial, error, and experimentation. The "failed" experiments are
    as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately
    "work".

    4. Lessons are repeated until they are learned. A lesson will
    be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it.
    When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.

    5. Learning lessons does not end. There's no part of life that
    doesn't contain its lessons. If you're "alive", that means there
    are still lessons to be learned.

    6. "There" is no better a place than "here". When your "there"
    has become a "here", you will simply obtain another "there" that
    will again look better than "here".

    7. Other people are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or
    hate something about another person unless it reflects to you
    something you love or hate about yourself.

    8. What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the
    tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to
    you. The choice is yours.

    9. Your answers lie within you. The answers to life's questions
    lie within you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

    10. You will forget all this.
    To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world.

            I could have sworn this thread got locked yesterday. Did you receive clemency from the WT or something?

            It did give me a chuckle, until I forgot what it was I was reading in the first place (as per rule number 10).

              Numbers 4 and 6 always sit in my mind; particularly #6.... except that I am "there", I just don't know where "there" is yet. But once I find it on the "map" I'll let y'all know

              Number 10???? Forget ??? Did I forget something?????
