It’s fun discerning one’s rules for living. I was asked to do that recently when I was a guest on multi-award winning author Johnny Tan’s Dallas radio show. (Here’s the link: http://tobtr.com/s/3138685)
l) Slow down the fast pace of life by going on a picnic, having a swing in a hammock, or by going on a walk.
2) Believe in angels, in the magic which surrounds you every day if you only pause and look around, and the power of music. It can sooth your soul.
3) Have lunch only with people who will order a desert.
4) Try everything, even if it’s only once, like Lutefisk or Disney’s rollercoaster which goes backwards in the dark. Actually, don’t tackle that rollercoaster unless you have an iron-clad stommach and do hold onto your purse. I lost my driver license when I held onto my purse too tightly and it squished out.
5) When there is a an unset, or a technical difficulty, it may just be grace (the unrequested assistance of a higher power) at work.
6) When dating, don’t get too close too soon.
7) Welcome the final moment of life as your biggest adventure.
