My rules of the road

Being spiritual, my values have always been important to me, so I thought I’d note down the values that help me bring and maintain peace in my life:

  • Whenever you help someone, do it with good grace;
  • When you apologise to someone, mean it;
  • Being aware of our lessons;
  • Not dwelling, but learning from failure;
  • Never belittle another person’s thoughts or beliefs;
  • When talking to someone, always make sure you listen;
  • Be attentive and show you care through compassion;
  • Get to know someone first before you pass judgment. Better still, don’t pass judgment;
  • If someone isn’t willing to meet you half way, their friendship isn’t for keeps;
  • Always be yourself;
  • It is important to think about yourself from time to time;
  • It is important to think about those who need emotional support and be willing to offer it if you can;
  • Be a shoulder to cry on, you never know when you might need one back;
  • Don’t judge others by your own standards. It is important for others to have a fair trial;
  • Don’t pull other people into your misery, or pull them down because you’re feeling bad;
  • Work on seeing only the positive, and if the positive turns out to be less than positive, always look for the silver lining;
  • Speak your own truth;
  • Don’t compromise on your own values or morals just to please others;
  • Never leave something said in anger. Going back to make amends is always the best policy.

  1. I like these rules to live by. A type of list as a guide down the trail on our life’s journey. Very cool indeed, don’t ever get tired of it either. Thank you for sharing this.
