15 Rules to Live By

MindBodyGreen By JenniferPastiloff re-post from April 14, 2012

Or not. You don’t have to live by my rules. But they do make life a whole lot sweeter. Each post will delve into each of one of the following rules.

1. Be Kind.

2. Have a sense of humor especially when it comes to YOU.

3. Write poems, even if only in your head.

4. Sing out loud, even if badly.

5. Dance, even with no rhythm

6. If you don’t have anything nice to say… you know the deal.

7. Find things to be in awe of.

8. Be grateful for what you have right now.

9. Watch Modern Family, read Wayne Dyer, and end every complaint with “But I’m so blessed!”

10. Duh, do yoga.

11. Don’t worry. Everyone on Facebook seems like they have happier and funner lives. They don’t.

12. Tell someone you love that you love them. Right now.

13.Take more pictures.

14. Forgive yourself for not being perfect. No such thing.

15. Thank the Universe in advance.

Number One. Kindness.

Ah, sweet kindness.

Yesterday I was on an airplane, as I am a lot these days. The flight attendant snapped at me because I asked him twice after he spoke. As if I simply was not listening or trying to make his job harder on purpose. He growled at me. Now, the reason I asked is because I have a major hearing problem. I wear hearing aids, which are so small that you can’t even see. I know it’s annoying to have to repeat yourself all the time. I get it. It stinks.

But you know what stinks worse? Not being able to hear.

So be kind, folks.

To be A) right or to be B) kind? The answer is B as in Be Kind.

Always choose kindness. Even if you are irritated. Even if you are tired. Even if you think you have been wronged. (Not-so-secret secret: it feels better to be kind.) Even if you are trying to walk down the aisle of the plane you work on to ask people if they want coffee or cocktails, be kind.

The alternative is grim.

Because here is what happens in a nutshell. Flight attendant snaps at me. I feel bad. I snap at my husband. My husband feels bad and snaps at me. No one feels good. It’s a nutshell filled with misgivings and miscommunications and hurt feelings. It’s a nutshell that needs a big nutcracker once it hardens. But, if we stop it before it grows and hardens, it becomes a soft heart-like thing, it’s texture dense and filled with kindness.

Kindness doesn’t need a nut-cracker.

Kindess needs a candle. Kindness needs a glass of merlot. Kindess needs a dance party. Kindness needs a downward facing dog. Kindness needs a hug. Kindness needs more kindness. It’s contagious like that.

Kindness does not need protective gear or a blow torch.

What can YOU do today to be kind?

Here are some suggestions:

1)  Look at your face in the mirror and find something to love about it. Find a couple of somethings to love about that face of yours. Go ahead and say “I love you” to your reflection even if you feel silly doing it. Let’s start there.

2) Make the person in front of you the most important person in the world.

3) Move your yoga mat over a few inches to make room for the person who just walked into the room without rolling your eyes or grumbling. In fact, smile as you do it.

4) Let someone over who is trying to merge in traffic. Yes, even if you live in Los Angeles and are driving on the 405.

5) Offering a silent blessing to the homeless person on the corner if you do not want to give them money. If you do give them money, still offer them a silent blessing.

6) Hug a child. One you know please!

7) Hug an animal. You don’t necessarily have to know the animal.

8) If you think someone is beautiful, tell them.

9)  Say thank you no matter what.

9/11: Explosive Evidence -- Experts Speak Out
by Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth

The 43 technical experts interviewed in Experts Speak Out lay out the case for controlled demolition from their individual areas of expertise in hi-rise architecture, structural engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, and controlled demolition. The seeming implausibility of the implications of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers being demolished with explosives is also handled quite skillfully in the film, as eight experts in psychology discuss the difficulties many people have in confronting the myth-shattering reality. This is a newly released DVD.

Eton Radio
The Must Have Emergency Tool!

Etón FR160B Microlink Self-Powered (Hand Crank Power) AM/FM/NOAA Weather Radio with Flashlight, Solar Power and Cell Phone Charger (Black)
by Eton

AM (520-1710 KHz) & FM (87-108MHz) NOAA weatherband USB cell phone charger (USB cable not included) 3.5 mm headphone Accessories: owner"s manual, warranty card

Reviews: Excellent Item for Travel, Backpacking, Camping, Etc.

This radio is a great little investment. It does exactly everything it states it should. On a 60 second crank I got hours of play. I ran the radio completely dead by leaving the light on and the radio playing at half column. I let the radio play like this with the light on for at least an hour before it went dead. I then put it out in the sun and let it charge with the solar charger for about four hours and then turned the radio on and let it play for only about an hour and then just didn't want to complete the experiment. I am very pleased with this radio. 60 seconds of cranking for hours of play is very reasonable. Letting it charge out in the sun and getting hours of play is very reasonable. I have other brands like this in the past that you would crank for 5 to 10 and get maybe 10 minutes of play.

The USB charge does work, but know that it will not charge an iPhone 3Gs. This is more a problem/restriction of the iPhone 3Gs (a widely discussed complaint across the Internet for many-many generic charging devices) and is not because of the radio. Charging my old Samsung phone was not a problem.

Capitalism: A Love StoryCapitalism: A Love Story. On the 20-year anniversary of his groundbreaking masterpiece "Roger & Me," Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" comes home to the issue he's been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans. But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the crime scene is far wider than Flint, Michigan.
