My 10 Commandments :)

For my Happiness Project, I wanted to have my own set of Commandments to live by for the year.  Gretchen Rubin had 12 in her book but I felt 12 was too many for me :)  So 10 it is and here they are in no particular order:

1.  Keep it Simple

2.  Be ME

3.  Do it Now

4.  Just Say "NO"

5.  Let it Go!

6.  Act the Way I want to Feel

7.  Spread Joy

8.  Give Thanks

9.  Be Present

10.  Own Less, Experience More

Some of these were taken from Gretchen, others from her readers and some were things that I already try to do.  I have this list typed out and hope to post it in a few places.  Throughout this journey I hope use this list to help me be a better and happier person.   Last year's journey was all about Simplifying Life.  I want to continue that journey and weave it into this one and thus commandments one, four and 10 were born :)   I am very excited about this list and hope that someday soon they will all become apart of me so that I will no longer need to refer to the list.  Happy Day!
