Life's Instructions

There are some things in life which you can't just take for granted. Here's a list of instructions which you cannot do without. I'll add more as time goes by.

  • Never laugh at anyone's dreams.
  • Believe in love at first sight.
  • Accept a breath mint if someone offers you one. (Phew!)
  • Rehearse a joke before telling it.
  • Don't let a little dispute injure a great freindship.
  • Once in a while invite the person in line behind you to go ahead of you.
  • Never be the first to break a family tradition.
  • Steer clear of any place with a 'Ladies Welcome' sign in the window. (Especially if you're with a girlfriend or wife)
  • Ask anyone giving directions to repeat them at least twice.
  • Don't stop traffic to pick up a coin.
  • Give people more than they expect, and do it cheerfully.
  • Someone will always be looking at you as an example of how to behave. (Don't let him/her down)
  • Do your homework and read your facts, but remember it's passion that persuades.
  • When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and say,"Why do you want to know?".
  • Overestimate travel time by 15 percent.
  • Don't be overconcerned with your rights that you forget your manners.
  • Don't dismiss a good idea simply because you don't like the source.
  • When you say,"I'm sorry", look the person in the eye.
  • No matter how old you get, hug and kiss your mother whenever you greet her.
  • Pray. There's immeasurable power in it.
  • Remember that everyone is influenced by kindness.
  • Be bold. Providence loves boldness and will assist you in ways you couldn't imagine.
  • Never continue dating anyone who is rude to the waiter.
  • The 5 most essential words for a healthy relationship: "I apologise" and "You are right".
  • Pull over for the idiots and let them pass, even when you're going pretty fast already.
  • When baking, follow directions. When cooking, go by your own taste.
  • You learn something new every day if you pay attention.
  • Believe in miracles but don't depend on them.
  • Remember, it's not your job to get people to like you, it's your job to like people.
  • Make sure you leave something in this world besides clothes, a nice house and loads of cash.

    And here's one that my Mum has added:-

  • Hold your child's hand every chance you get. The time will come when he/she won't let you.
