2 Free Plane Tickets

We launched a new website at work. (Yippee!! The old one was terrible. TERRIBLE!)

I am having a little contest for people that check it out and take the survey...I'm giving away 2 plane tickets.

Check it out, take the survey and maybe you'll win! Good luck!

(Oh, and the first 5 people that post the link on their blog, I'll send you a $5 Starbucks gift card. Post a comment so I know you did it!)

FW: Handbook for 2010

FYI - I don't read emails that have been forwarded to me. If it says "forward this to 10 people or you will have bad luck for 7 years" I delete it. Bring on the email bad luck karma. I don't care.

But today I opened an email with the subjuect line "FW: Handbook for 2010". I love it. LOVE IT!

Blogged it. Printed it. Hanging it on my fridge. I promise it's worth 2 min of your time. Read it.

Handbook for 2010

1. Drink plenty of water.
2. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
3. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
4. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm and Empathy
5. Make time to pray more.
6. Play more games.
7. Read more books than you did in 2009 .
8. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
9. Sleep for 7 hours.
10. Take a 10-30 minutes walk daily. And while you walk, smile.

11. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
12. Don't have negative thoughts on things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
13. Don't over do. Keep your limits.
14. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
15. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.
16. Dream more while you are awake.
17. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
18. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
20. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
21. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
22. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
23. Smile and laugh more.
24. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

25. Call your family often.
26. Each day give something good to others.
27. Forgive everyone for everything.

29. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
30. What other people think of you is none of your business.
31. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

32. Do the right thing!
33. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
34. GOD heals everything.
35. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
36. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
37. The best is yet to come.
38. Be happy.
39. When you awake in the morning, thank GOD for it.
