The Happiness Project

I thought I would ponder what the author of The Happiness Project calls Personal Commandments. These are the statements that you tell yourself often, the statements that are your mission and your personal goals.

I really like several of the following these are my own Commandments:
Be Vicki-don't try to fit in the mold of anyone else or any one's expectations
Don't let the reactions of small people rule your actions
Do it right and well the first time
Use a calendar and take notes, I will never remember

Here are some good ones that I read on the Projects web site (see side bar for link)

One day at a time
It is time to love and look after myself ( so I can love and look after others)
Do what you don't like to do first
Take things in stride

They are very good. Hmmm, I am sure I can come up with more. I will add as I go today. What are some of yours?

Mine would be:
You are strong and you can do this.
Not everyone needs to hear your opinion.
Be a team player. More gets accomplished that way.
