Wisdom from Our Elders

Probably my favorite from Mr. Ian K. Smith:

Wisdom from Our Elders

Don’t waste time worrying about things you can’t control.

You can’t fight every battle. Choose which ones are worth fighting and let the others go.

When deciding on a life partner, think about whether this is the person you want to grow old with, not someone who just satisfies you now.

Surround yourself with good people. Goodness is contagious.

Don’t love only from your heart. Love also from your head.

Live your life to the fullest. Tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone.

It takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile.

Enjoy even the smallest of life’s blessings. You never know when the next one is coming.

The best way to receive is to give.

Happiness is a happy home.

My take:

These are really great ways to start improving your life — early! What people have taken ages to learn is right before your eyes. Start being more positive, easy-going, and happy today 🙂 Hope you liked this as much as I did, real good tips.
