Amazing Posts: Life\’s Instructions

I found this on the internet a while ago and seeing as its Easter I figured this was as good a time as any to share.  So, without further ado, I present to you;

Life\’s Instructions

Have a firm handshake.Look people in the eye.Sing in the shower.Own a great stereo system.If in a fight, hit first and hit hard.Keep secrets.Never give up on anybody. Miracles happen everyday.Always accept an outstretched hand.Be brave. Even if you\’re not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference.Whistle.Avoid sarcastic remarks.Choose your life\’s mate carefully. From this one decision will come 90 per cent of all your happiness or misery.Make it a habit to do nice things for people who will never find out.Lend only those books you never care to see again.Never deprive someone of hope; it might be all that they have.When playing games with ! children, let them win.Give people a second chance, but not a third.Be romantic.Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life-and-death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems.Don\’t allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It\’s there for our convenience, not the caller\’s.Be a good loser.Be a good winner.Think twice before burdening a friend with a secret.When someone hugs you, let them be the first to let go.Be modest.

Have a grateful heart and be quick to acknowledge those who helped you.Take charge of your attitude. Don\’t let someone else choose it for you.Visit friends and relatives when they are in hospital; you need only stay a few minutes.Begin each day with some of your favorite music.Once in a while, take the scenic route.Send a lot of Valentine cards.

  1. Also don’t fry bacon naked and don’t crouch while wearing spurs…

    I had this book called “Life’s Little Instruction Book” when I was in highschool that had a lot of these same things plus these two.

    Thanks for making my day blogger buddy 🙂


    1. Hahaha, Love it! Yeah, I know that I found this a while back, surfing the web as I do with all my free-time, and I know it made my day. I stashed it away for use another day to spread the love. Im glad to hear that it had the same effect on you!


      1. I’ll never forget it…I was thinking of printing it off and folding it in my jacket pocket to read on a bad day…Thank you for this…very, very much. Maybe it’s weird to say but you give me such hope for straight men…sometimes I get the urge to paint them all with the same brush and then I meet a really cool one 🙂

        As always,
        You are beyond welcome. Much as I would love to take the credit, I am but the product of growing up in a household full of amazing and strong women. Im just glad that I could serve as something of an ambassador for “my people” ;).
