The Second Ten Commandments

Author Unknown

Thou shall not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.

Thou shall not be fearful, for most things we fear never come to pass.

Thou shall not cross bridges before you come to them, for no one yet has succeeded in accomplishing this.

Thou shall face each problem as it comes.  You can only handle one at a time anyway.

Thou shall not take problems to bed with you, for they make very poor partners!

Thou shall not borrow others peoples problems, The can better care for them than you can.

Thou shall not try to relive yesterday as it is forever gone.  Concentrate on what is happening in your life and be happy as best you can today.

Thou shall  be a good a good listener, for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own.  It is hard to learn something new when you are talking, and some people do know more than you do.

Thou shall not become bogged down by frustrations, for 90% of it is rooted in self pity and will only interfere with positive action.

Thy shall count thy blessings, never over looking the small ones, for a lot of small blessings add up to the big ones.

The shall and shall nots

There are principles which govern our life — they are principles of Life.  If our life is lived according to these principles all is well, and harmony reins in place of vexation and struggle.

Henry T. Hamblin

Most of us were taught the 10 Commandments when we were young and they’ve become guiding principles in our lives.  I thought this second set of commandments were also pretty good things to remember .

Sometimes seeing things put in plain words like these makes us remember what is important in life.  They may not be carved in stone, but they’ll make your life better for sure.

Principles don’t die. They aren’t here one day and gone the next.  They can’t be destroyed by fire, earthquake or theft.  Principles are deep fundamental truths, classic truths.

Steven R. Covey

Note to anyone no longer receiving comments in their email.

Thanks to a friend that blogs I recently found out that I could once again receive comments in my email by checking the box in my comment section that says to email follow up comments.  I took a picture of what I see on my blog when leaving a comment on it.  

I’ve started leaving a comment on my blog each day just so I can enjoy receiving comments in my email again.  

Hope this helps anyone else having a problem.

I also can no longer comment on a few of my favorite blogs at all as it seems I’m not a member of Google Plus.  So if you are wondering why I no longer comment that is why.  I can read them but cannot comment.

I was without internet for almost a whole day but now thankfully it's woking again. We don't appreciate something half as much until we no longer have it for sure.


Worrying is a waste of time. "Thou shall not try to relive yesterday as it is forever gone. "

I liked that list of the Second Ten Commandments. I surely do waste a lot of time worrying; need to stop doing that and start living :)

Okay, I enjoyed the 10 commandments but this one was the tops for me at this time:
Thou shall not cross bridges before you come to them, for no one yet has succeeded in accomplishing this................

Yeah the comments thing has been a bug...
