Dissecting the Happy Rules

Image result for angeles arrien quotes

Seems too simple until you think about how our lives might have been different if we had just followed these simple rules.

Take high school for example:

  1. What if we had just shown up in the moment without worrying about our hair, skin, clothes, or imperfections?
  2. What if because of that, we had been able to really see people without comparing ourselves to them?
  3. What if we hadn’t felt compelled to impress anyone? What if we had just told the truth about ourselves, our fears, our family, our talents, and our desires?
  4. What if we had just done the best we could with what we had and not worried about what we thought should happen next?

Sure would have saved us a lot of pain.

There’s still time.
