Recipe for Peace

Today’s post isn’t directly related to fashion or beauty, but it is beautiful advice.  Plus, it is always in style to lead a happy, peaceful life.  The following is an e-mail forward that I couldn’t resist sharing.  I hope you all enjoy this advice as much as I do.

A Great Recipe for a Peace-Filled Life

  • Take a ten to 30 minute walk everyday.  While you walk, smile, it is the ultimate anti-depressant.
  • Sit in silence at least ten minutes everyday and talk to God.  Purchase a lock if necessary.
  • When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement: “My purpose is to _________ today.  I am thankful for ________.”
  • Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
  • Drink green tea and plenty of water, eat blueberries wild Alaskan salmon, broccoli, almonds and walnuts.
  • Try to make at least three people smile per day.
  • Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts and things that are beyond your control.  Instead, invest your energy in the positive present moment.
  • Eat breakfast like a Queen, lunch like a Princess and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out credit card.
  • Life isn’t fair, but it is still good.
  • Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
  • Don’t take yourself so seriously.  No one else does.
  • You are not so important that you have to win every argument.  Agree to disagree.
  • Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil your present.
  • Don’t compare your life to others.  You have no idea what their journey is all about.
  • No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
  • Frame every so-called disaster with these words: ‘In five years, will this matter?’
  • Forgive everyone for everything.
  • What other people think of you is none of your business.
  • God heals everything – but you have to ask him.
  • However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
  • Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick; your friends and family will.
  • Envy is a waste of time, you already have all you need.
  • Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: “I am thankful for _________.  Today I accomplished __________.”
  • Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.
  • When you are feeling down start listing your many blessings.  You will be smiling before you know it.
