Years ago when my kids were still in primary school (so possibly 15 years ago) I printed these commandments and we used to read it aloud together. I was rummaging through stuff in my study and came across the printed version. They are still so relevant.
Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the ones who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it.
Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
If you want your dreams to come true, you mustn’t oversleep.
Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important.
The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.
The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge.
One thing you can give and still keep … is your word.
You lie the loudest when you lie to yourself.
If you lack the courage to start, you have already finished.
One thing you can’t recycle is wasted time.
Ideas won’t work unless ‘you’ do.
Your mind is like a parachute … it functions only when open.
The 10 commandments are not a multiple choice.
The pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime! It is never too late to become what you might have been.
