Better Happier Human Beings

One of the first promises a parent makes to their child is, "I want to give you a life better than what I had."  It doesn't necessarily mean that their own lives were horrible.  It merely means they want to give their children more.  I want to give my children better lives, by first helping them become better happier human beings.
  • Laugh more.  Laugh at yourself. Take time to laugh and celebrate.
  • Take care of your body. Take care of what's inside.  A healthy mind, a healthy heart, and a healthy soul is important.  Never put your health or yourself last. 
  • You are never too old to learn.  Be open to learn lessons from unexpected sources.
  • Trust your gut.  If something doesn't feel right.  Don't do it.
  • Be humble.
  • Have an opinion.  Not having an opinion can be dangerous, or at the very least cause unhappiness.
  • Accept criticism graciously.  Don't take criticism personally.  If possible, spin the criticism in a positive way.  If not, ignore it.
  • Be honest.  It's easier to be honest than it is to keep up with a lie.  The consequences of a lie are worst.
  • Accept change.  Change is constantly occuring.  There are things you can't stop from happening.  You'll need it to run its course.  Accept it and take your time dealing with the change.  But don't let it change the person you are. 
  • Don't give money, give your time.  Your time and attention is worth more and can't be replaced.
  • Be loyal.  Be loyal to yourself and to the important people in your life.
  • Spend for the life you have, not the life you want.
  • Don't be afraid of taking a risk.  If you have to change your career 13 times to finally be happy.  Just do it.
  • Don't be afraid of mistakes.  Accept and admit you made a mistake.  Learn from it.  Move on.
  • Appreciate yourself.  Appreciate what you have. Appreciate others.
