Some things make life pleasant; others make it miserable. The following rules are not always easy to follow.
1--Make up your mind to be happy. Find pleasure in simple things.
2--Make the best of your circumstances. Everyone has sorrow. Seek to make smiles outnumber tears.
3--You can't please everyone. Don't let your critics run and ruin your life. The more you accomplish, the more resistance you will meet.
4--Don't borrow trouble. Imaginary problems are heavier than actual ones.
5--Hate poisons the soul. Avoid people who make you unhappy.
6--Don't brood over sorrows & mistakes.
