I make these lists from time to time, both to share with others and also to remind myself of some valuable lessons I've learned on my journey. Feel free to save, copy, paste, share, whatever. Take what you like and toss what doesn't suit you. Enjoy.

-Be kind to children, animals, and everybody else.
-Drink lots of water.
-Eat fruits and veggies every day.
-Don’t take financial advice from people with no money.
-Stop buying things you don’t need.
-Save 10% of your take-home pay and never spend it.
-Find a job you love and do it as well as you can.
-Relationship advice: Find someone who is good to you and spend every day making each other happy.
-Cash makes an excellent gift.
-Read at least 3 books per year.
-Don’t judge people because you don’t know what they are going through.
-Help others when you can, the world needs more of that.
-Money is important but it’s not the most important thing.
-You don’t need a $50,000 truck or a huge house.
-Don’t take life so seriously.
-Laugh, play, and be thankful every day.
-Don’t take things that don’t belong to you.
-Don’t stay at a job you hate.
-Never leave home without a knife and a small flashlight.
-Be generous with your time, or your money, or both.
-If you think you have problems, volunteer at a homeless shelter. It will be an eye-opener.

I'm thankful to all my readers for your time and attention. You are my inspiration.

Now go take on the day!

Peace, out.

Has anybody else noticed this? We are driving cars we can’t afford to jobs we don’t like to pay for houses that sit empty all day. We have become slaves and most people don’t even realize it. It’s not right! We work hard for our money, only to give it away freely to banks and corporations and the government. 

If you’re not happy with the way your life is going, this may be the key. The solution is simple! Get out of debt, live below your means, and stop working so hard just to make the payments every month. 

There is another way. Look up Minimalism, Simple Life, Tiny Houses. You might be amazed. You might be inspired.

Looking for a road map to lead you out of the debt trap? Look up Dave Ramsey. Yes, he sells products but you don’t need to buy any of that. What he shares for FREE on his website and on Youtube will lead you out of debt forever. No need to thank me. Just get yourself free. You can do it!

End of rant.

Now go take on the day!

Peace, out.

I recently watched a movie that took place in the 1980’s. It was fascinating to watch because there were no cell phones, no tablets, no computers! People weren't distracted, staring at a screen.

I found myself thinking, these are people without any electronic distractions in their lives. This is how life used to be. I barely remember when nobody had a cell phone. When people were around other people, they actually talked to each other!  And when somebody was all alone, sitting at a bus stop, or whatever, they were thinking! What a novel idea! 

I know some of you are thinking, big deal! But to me, it was an Ah-Ha moment! Its not my place to say if life is better or worse now, but it's definitely something to think about.

Now go take on the day!

Peace, out.
