As I was re-reading “A 3rd Serving of Chicken Soup for the Soul” the other day for inspiration, I came across these 15 Golden Rules for Living by an unknown author. While they are very simple, they make a great deal of sense. 

1.      If you open it, close it.life rules

2.      If you turn it on, turn it off.

3.      If you unlock it, lock it up.

4.      If you break it, admit it.

5.      If you can’t fix it, call in someone who can.

6.      It you borrow it, return it.

7.      If you value it, take care of it.

8.      If you make a mess, clean it up.

9.      If you move it, put it back.

10.  If it belongs to someone else and you want to use it, get permission.

11.  If you don’t know how to operate it, leave it alone.

12.  If it’s none of your business, don’t ask questions.

13.  If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

14.  If it will brighten someone’s day, say it.

15.  If it will tarnish someone’s reputation, keep it to yourself.

Do you think if many of us incorporated these 15 rules, our world would be a better place?



       “Our words reveal our thought;

         Our manners mirror our self esteem;

         Our actions reflect our character;

         Our habits predict the future.”

         William Arthur Ward
