Thoughts for a Fresh Start in the New Year!!

I give you...thoughts to begin a New Year! A Fresh Start!

* Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
* Don't believe all you hear or spend all you have.
* When you say, "I love you", mean it.
* When you say, "I'm sorry", look the person in the eye.
* Believe in love at first sight.
* Never laugh at anyone's dreams.
* Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.
* In disagreements, fight fairly. 
* Talk slow, but think quick. (I have trouble with this one!!)
* Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
* Call your Mom and Dad.
* Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.
* Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; Responsibility for all your actions.
* Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
* When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
* Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.
* Spend time alone - in my opinion, it is good for the soul and VERY necessary to keep my sanity!!
* Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values.
* Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
* Read more and watch less TV.
* Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll get to enjoy it a second time.
* Trust in God but lock your car.
* A loving atmosphere in your home is so important. Do all you can to create a tranquil and harmonious home.
* Read between the lines.
* Share your knowledge. It's a way to achieve immortality.
* Remember that the best relationship is one where your love for each other is greater than your need for each other.
* Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.
* Pray. There's immeasurable power in it.
