Life’s Don’ts

When you stop chasing these Life’s Don’ts, you give the right things in life a chance.

Don’t run from your problems.
There’s no person in the world capable of flawlessly handling every punch thrown at them. Face your problems head on. Learn, adapt, and solve them over the course of time. This is what ultimately molds us into the person we become.

Don’t lie to yourself.
You can lie to anyone else in the world, but you can’t lie to yourself. The most difficult chance we take is to be honest with ourselves.

Don’t be scared to make a mistake.
Doing something and getting it wrong is at least ten times more productive than doing nothing. Every failure leads towards success. You’ll end up regretting the things you did NOT do, more than the things you did.

gorillaDon’t berate yourself for old mistakes. 
Mistakes help us find the person and things that are right for us. You have the power to shape your day and your future. Every single thing that has happened in your life is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come.

Don’t try to be someone you’re not.
One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else. Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you. Don’t change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.

Don’t complain and feel sorry for yourself.
Life’s curveballs are thrown for a reason – to shift your path in a direction that is meant for you. Reflect back on those negative curveballs thrown at you in the past. You’ll often see that eventually they led you to a better place, person, state of mind, or situation. So smile! Let everyone know that today you are a lot stronger than you were yesterday.

Don’t try to make things perfect.
The real world doesn’t reward perfectionists; it rewards people who get things done.

Don’t be ungrateful.
Wake up each day thankful for your life. Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.

Don’t try to buy happiness.
The things that really satisfy us are totally free – love, laughter, and working on our passions.

Don’t blame others for your troubles.
The extent to which you can achieve your dreams depends on the extent to which you take responsibility for your life. When you blame others for what you’re going through, you give them power over that part of your life.

  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
