“I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.”
― Robert A. Heinlein
People ask why I’m so bloody positive all the time and it’s quite simple: my life, my rules.
The ‘rules’ that I live by are simple and straight-forward. They help me learn from the past, love the present and look forward to the future. They guide my life, my relationships and my decisions.
Sometimes they’re more like guidelines, they’re not set in stone so they evolve and develop over time, and apart from the first two they exist in no particular order. There’s no punishment for breaking them (all good rules are made to be broken), although the consequences of not following or listening to them tend to be karmic.
I’ll share them over the next few weeks and maybe you’ll find something useful, maybe you won’t. It’s your life after all, live it by your rules.
