My Personal Commandments

I randomly find things I like and need to write about it instantly. This was one of those moments.

Inspired by writer Gretchen Rubin's blog, The Happiness Project, I decided to make a list of personal commandments to live by and thought I would share them on here.

Lauren’s Rules of the Road Ahead
1. Think before speaking
2. Live as if… (you die tomorrow, things turn out wrong, etc.)
3. Go to bed thankful
4. Love myself
5. Don't make excuses
6. Simplify and beautify the world around me
7. Reduce the drama
8. Trust my inner voice
9. Life is shades of gray - black and white thinking is unrealistic and boring
10. Choose happiness, don't chase it
11. Never stop learning
12. The next five minutes are the most important

I'm not here to be a motivational speaker, but making this list has been therapeutic. I suggest you do the same, no matter how corny you feel!
