to consider in the new year

from the blog TheHappinessProject a post about new year’s resolutions and writing up your personal commandments. The author has her 12 for the year but at the end of the post she listed these items out that others had shared. The bolded items are ones I think I will pay special attention to this coming year. I think they are all good ideas to consider as touchpoints for 2009 for being a happier, more satisfied person. Don’t you?

  • Forget the past.
  • Do stuff.
  • Talk to strangers.
  • Stay in touch.
  • Make haste to be kind.
  • Don’t wait.
  • Action, not reaction.
  • Always with love.
  • Baby steps.
  • Reverence.
  • Recognize my patterns.
  • Be present.
  • Don’t rehearse unhappiness.
  • Live your values.
  • The more the merrier.
  • Love is all around.
