instructions for life

Even on days when I'm feeling a little blue or disheartened, I try to find something to make me see that my challenges and issues are very small. Enjoy!

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 hot to break them properly.

don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

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

spend some time alone everyday.

open your 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 eachother exceeds your need for eachother.

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

approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.
