Another 10 Instructions for Life, Reloaded! ;)

These are instructions 31 to 40 and, in a few days, we’ll have the final article of this short series. Before moving to the instructions for life and my opinions, let me remind you that the idea of these articles and the instructions to talk about came from here. These being said, let’s get down to business!

Be bold and courageous. When you look back on life, you’ll regret the things you didn’t do more than the one’s you did.
I agree with this one, as long as one can clearly make the difference between bold/courageous and foolish.

Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them.
Well… sounds good in theory, but I really think that overusing the word erodes the feeling itself.

Remember no one makes it alone. Have a grateful heart and be quick to acknowledge those who helped you.
Watch Rambo and Predator, then think about it again. Heh, on a serious approach – I completely agree to the above.

Take charge of your attitude. Don’t let someone else choose it for you.
This world would be amazing if at least 40% of its population would at least think about this every single day, don’t you think?

Visit friends and relatives when they are in hospital; you need only stay a few minutes.
Isn’t this supposed to be more than obvious? Geez, such rules should never be written – if you don’t have them “built in,” I am sorry to say it, but you’re not human.

Begin each day with some of your favorite music.
No need to tell me that, I’ve been doing it for ages. On the other hand, what about people who just listen to anything they’re being fed, without being able to name a favorite artist? Until I met a few of them, I was sure such people just can’t exist. So sad, so sad…

Once in a while, take the scenic route.
I take the short route once in a while. I always do my best to spare some time for the scenic route.

Send a lot of Valentine cards. Sign them, ‘Someone who thinks you’re terrific.’
Drop that Valentine crap, just send some awesome cards and… that’s it.

Answer the phone with enthusiasm and energy in your voice.
You wouldn’t come up with such an advice if you had relatives who call you and talk for at least 20 minutes without actually saying anything important…

That’s all for now, be sure to stay tuned for the final part – it will arrive in just a few days!
