Advice for a Happy Life

There are a few things that I have learned over the years that are important if one is to have a Happy Life. I wrote them down for my daughter, on the occasion of her graduation from high school. But they are good things to know for any one, at any stage in their journey. So I thought I'd share them here.

Life can be hard. No one promised easy. There is no Instruction Manual. Follow your Heart.

Intimacy is messy. True Love and Genuine Friendship require Intimacy. You are Worth it.

You have a Light in you child; don't let anybody put out that Light! 

Feed your Soul. Do what you Love. Love what you do.

Never be afraid to give your love.You are Beautiful, inside and out, just as you are. Your Love is a Gift. Always share it.

The only regrets are Questions not asked, Answers not given, Love not Shared.

Start as you mean to Finish. If it is worth your time, it deserves being done right, the first time, with all of your attention and your best effort.

Never Quit. Never ever Quit. But know when to Let Go and Move On.

Love Deeply, Completely, and Treasure Anyone who touches your Heart.

Live your Life, don't just Survive it. 

Leave a Legacy in People's Hearts. That is the best Memorial a Person can earn.
