“No one has ever become poor by giving.”

The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank

Thought about this quotation a lot today.

Life can be magical when you have a clear set of personal rules to live by.  Here are my top 10 picks for living a happy, abundant life. (I hope they inspire you to create your own set of rules for living life to its fullest.) 
Life Rule #1: Look for the good side of everything
Whether it’s your partner, your brother, your pet, your home or work, try placing the majority of your attention on the things you really love and appreciate, rather than looking for the things you find tiresome or irritating.
Life Rule #2: Do what you love and love what you do. 
Try, as much as possible,  to live  a life that is  not tethered too tightly  to the actions and opinions of others. Do what you love and love what you do. 
Life Rule#3: Appreciate Where You Are Right Now 
As you work your way toward your ultimate goals and dreams, make an intentional effort to recognize that where you stand in the present moment is as much a gift as where you are going. Every day, look for at least one thing about your life RIGHT NOW that satisfies you. 
Life Rule #4: Have Some Fun 
Laugh, dance, do something  silly. Watch a funny movie, go for a swim, have lobster for dinner. Whatever you consider fun, pick something, and Just Do It. 
Life Rule #5: Say What You Need to Say
Don’t hold back…if you want to say, “I love you,” say it. If you need to say, “You hurt me,” say that too. 
Life Rule #6: Surround Yourself With People You Love
Make a list of the people who  make you feel safe, inspired, happy, and motivated. Keep them close and let them know, on a regular basis, how much they mean to you. 
Life Rule #7: Forget About The Money (If  just  for a little while) 
Sure, money makes the world go ‘round, BUT if everything you do is monetarily based, you’re  destined to miss a lot of life on the way to your “riches.” Make a habit  of doing  at least  one thing every day that doesn’t cost  you a penny or make you a dime. 
Life Rule #8: Focus on what is not temporary
 Contrary to popular belief, life is  not about struggle, conflict and endurance. Often, simply deciding that you will look the other way, turn the other cheek, or smile and say “no problem,” can spell the difference between misery and happiness. It’s always your choice. 
Life Rule #9: Think about the needs of others 
Neither everything is about us, you have to decide be consumed by the needs of others too.
 Life Rule #10: Put God above all else
 God is our base. Your word, your love and your mighty hand can do everything. Our faith moves mountains and in his way and only in his way we will find happiness.

"I was about to leave for work the other day, so I stopped in her room to wake her up. And the first thing she said was: ‘Dad, I need a surprise.’ I said: ‘You need a what?’She said: ‘I need a surprise.’ So I ran to the store and got her a doll, brought it to her, and went to work.”
