A mail from a dear friend

Dear loved one,

Here are a few things to keep in mind.

Your Health: • Drink plenty of water every day to detoxify your body. • Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar so you can be here for long. • Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less of manufactured in plants. •
Live with the 3 E's - You must keep your Energy, Enthusiasm and Empathy. •
Make time to pray, you need divine strength everyday of your life. • Play games to challenge your brain and keep it young all the time. • Read more books to keep pace with your personal development drive. • Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day for deep, reflective and focused thinking. • Sleep for at least 6 hours daily so you can keep your energy level at pace. • Take a 30-45 minutes’ walk daily. And while you walk, wear a smile to relax.

Your Personality: • Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea of what their purpose is. • Don't develop negative thoughts on things you cannot control e.g. the weather elements. Rather invest your energy in things that are within your reach e.g your attitude, moods, etc • Don't live overboard. Live within your strength; develop your capacity to overshadow your limitations. • Don't take yourself so seriously. Relax! Deadlines are set by people but achieve your goals. • Don't waste your precious energy on gossip or backbiting so you won’t be laid back.. • Dream more while you are awake and put your thoughts in concrete plans with actions. • Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need. The grass is not greener on the other side. You are gifted for your assignment. • Forget issues of the past. Don't remind people about the mistakes of their past that will ruin their present happiness. The past is always what it is – the past! • Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others. Live in forgiveness. You owe everyone your love and forgiveness because you are not perfect. • Make peace with your past so it won't always show up in your present. Don’t cover it any further; confront it to enjoy true freedom; no one is in charge of your happiness except YOU! • Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appears and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime. Laugh at your mistakes and refuel to face your future. • You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree. Life is about win-win experiences.

Your Relationships: • Call your family often. You don’t have a space that can’t be occupied by your loved ones! • Each day give something good to others. Make people around you feel great about their lives. • Forgive everyone for everything even when they are unlovable and unforgiveable in your own estimations. Opinions are cheap but convictions are rare. • Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6 years so you can understand the dynamics of life. • Try to make at least three people smile each day. • Your job/business won't take care of you when you are down. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

Your Life: • Always desire to do the right thing, without any compromise! • Get rid of anything that isn't useful in your life; don’t waste your time and opportunities. • GOD can heal everything, especially the so called hopeless situations of our lives. • However good or bad a situation is; it will come to pass. It has definitely not come to stay. • No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. Consistency is the rule of life. • The best is yet to come. Always develop a good expectation of a favorable outcome. • When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD because Life itself is a gift! Be joyful!
