the 2010 handbook

a friend sent me this in email and i thought i'd share it with you.....yes, it's a little past the new year's start, but never too late to put good advice to work for us......hope you enjoy....and find a few things here that will work for you this year.....

7. read more books than you did in 2009
8.sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day

10. take a 10-30 minute walk daily.....and while you walk, smile

36. no matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up
37. the best is yet to come
38. when you awake alive in the morning, thank God for it
39. your innermost is always, be happy

there's so much good here....a few that i'm not sure what they mean.....but i keep remembering the quote that we are only as happy as we choose to for me, i'm happy....i wanna be i'm gonna choose to have a 2010 full of good times with brad and all my family and friends.....a profitable year in the truck with safe travels and awesome adventures....who knows, i may even organize my files and balance my checkbook........i'm just sayin......
