Decla-imm-ation 2013

Here are 15 decla-imm-ation for 2013 that I've posted in my FB:

No. 15 - Money is never enough. Neither is love, time, sleep, freedom, etc. Choose and prioritize wisely, or you will have more than enough regrets to last a lifetime.

No. 14 - Don’t pity yourself, no matter how shitty your life is (or you think it is). There are plenty of people doing that for you. You don’t need to join in the commiserating. It doesn't make it less shitty.

No. 13 - True altruism is rare. People do things because they want something back, one way or another. Just feel honored that you are worthy enough to be made used of.

No. 12 - Don’t try to change people. If you don’t want to change, what makes you think that others would? Flaws is what makes us human. To each their own.

No. 11 - Say your piece and then hold your peace. People don’t have to accept your opinion/advice. They have every right to live their life the way they want, messed up or otherwise.

No. 10 - Don’t envy others. We only show our best to the world. We hide our scars and demons. Only we would know of the blood, sweat and tears we endured along the way.

No. 09 - Don’t try to please everyone. Even God can’t do it. Just be yourself and do what you think you should. People will talk, one way or another. Conscious clear, enough said.

No. 08 - Don’t bite more than you can chew. You may fail to deliver your promise or you may have to sacrifice your health/family/whatever doing it. Either way, it’s not worth it. Just say ‘No’.

No. 07 - Accept whatever ‘gifts’ you didn’t ask for. You are helping people feel good about themselves by letting them think that they are better off than you. A win-win situation.

No. 06 - Never assume you know the whole truth. There are too many sides to a story. And we tend to only see/accept the one we are familiar/comfortable with. Be open and ready to admit your mistakes.

No. 05 - Single? Good. Married? Good. Divorced? Good. Widowed? Sorry about that. Got kid? Good. Got kids? Good. No kids? Good. In any case, be happy with your choices, even when you didn’t choose it. You are not defined by your marriage and kids (or the lack of).

No. 04 - Don’t compare. You are definitely worse off than the richest, but you are much more fortunate than the poorest/sickest. Look at what you have, not what you don’t have. Be grateful.

No. 03 - Don’t expect people to fix your problems. People don’t owe you anything and you them. If they lend a hand, be grateful but don’t assume they should and would.
No. 02 - Remember those who (back)stabbed you. They are the one who can’t sleep at night and/or worry about karma. Forgive but don’t forget. Know who is friend and who is foe. .
No. 01 - Count your blessings and forget about your bad fortune. Don’t worry, you’ll have lots of people keeping score of your bad luck and will not hesitate to remind you of it ever so often.
