Chapter 6, Page 22, Book 11

Ten Laws of Life

1. When ones hands are covered in oil, grease, or glue, your nose will start to itch. (Law of Itchiban)

2. Your insurance will cover everything but what has happened. (Incuranctions So Sorry Law)

3. When things seem easy to do, it's because you haven't followed all the instructions. (Destiny Awaits Law)

4. The cost is always higher than one budgets for, and it's exactly 3.14 times higher, hence the importance of pi. (Law of Pi Eyed)

5. The probability that one will spill food on one's clothes is directly proportional to its need to be clean. (Law of Campbell's Scoop)

6. Each and every body sitting on a commode will cause the doorbell to ring. (Law of Gotta Go!)

7. Wind velocity will increase proportionally to the cost of one's hairdo. (The Hair-Wind Principle)

8. After discarding something not used for years, you will need it one week later. (Law of Irreversibility)

9. Arriving for an appointment will cause the receptionist to be absent, and if one arrives late, everyone else else arrived before you. (Law of De Lay)

10. Do not take life too serious, because in the end, you won't come out alive anyway. (Law of Absolute Certainly)


It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser

The older we get, the more we realize that the choice to be happy or unhappy is our own. Sure, there will be times where things don’t go our way. We’ll feel unhappiness, sorrow, even depression. Everyone experiences down days. Melancholy moments can bring great wisdom if we think them through.

If you’re unhappy or unsatisfied, make today the day you put it all behind you. Choose to feel the joy in your life again. One thing I've learned is that we always have a choice. I've put the past behind me and learned to live day each day as it comes and to be thankful for it.

Keep your attitude positive!

When you accept the reality of your situation, you can take the first essential step to a new and better life. This is reason for celebration! To overcome pain, misery, and sorrow is no small feat for anyone. It takes a lot of powerful positive thoughts and motivation.
The wonderful thing is that no matter what is happening in our lives we really do have a choice about just how we handle it.

Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday everyone!

'On Ya'-ma

Wednesday resolution: Remember your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God’s grace…and your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God’s grace

Good stuff, but I had to chuckle at "IT IS EASIER TO GET OLDER THAN IT IS TO GET WISER", (sigh) how true!!!
Love from our private camp ground (ha)

What a great post as always! The Ten Laws of Life had me practically falling off my chair! Especially the one about the phone or door bell ringing when in the bathroom! I finally put an extension phone in my bathroom as it was inevitable that it would ring when I was in there! HA!

I agree, we do have a choice whether to be happy or unhappy. Sometimes I think people enjoy wallowing in self pity for some crazy reason. Not every day is perfect by any stretch but we do have a choice on how we let it affect us.

Love your Wednesday resolution, it's so true!!!

great Wednesday resolution Ma! I liked it! I also thought those 10 laws were so cute (and so accurate for the majority if not all of them!)

It is so true it is all about choice on how we will deal with the situations in our lives! Always a good reminder for that too to remember we do have that choice!

may you have a good Wednesday!

Love those Ten Laws of Life. Made me chuckle. Particularly like the one that said... "Do not take life too serious, because in the end, you won't come out alive anyway." Life is what you make it, one way or another.
