My favorite gift this season...

I received these "Instructions for Life" as a Christmas Card this year and I must share these beautiful words of wisdom. Please enjoy, breathe in, and share them! Best to you!!!

Take into account that great love and great
achievements involve great risk.

When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

Follow the three R's:

Respect for self,
Respect for others and
Responsibility for all your actions.

Remember that not getting what you want
is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

Learn the rules so you know
how to break them properly.

Don't let a little dispute injure a great relationship.

When you realize you've made a mistake,
take immediate steps to correct it.

Spend some time alone every day.

Open arms to change, but don't let go of your values.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get
older and think back, you'll be able to enjoy it a second time.

A loving atmosphere in your home is
the foundation for your life.

In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with
the current situation. Don't bring up the past.

Share your knowledge. It's a way to
achieve immortality.

Be gentle with the earth.
Once a year, go someplace you've never been before.

Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love
for each other exceeds your need for each other.

Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.

Words of wisdom from the Dalai Lama.
