Rules For Being Human

I was given this little pearl of wisdom when I was 19 and still reflect on it today, so I thought I would share it with you:-

We are all enrolled in an informal school called ‘life.’  Each day at this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons.


You will receive a body, you may like it or hate it, but it is yours for the entire period this time around, look after it well.


Every “mistake” you survive is called a lesson.  A lesson is repeated until it is learned, and then you will go on to the next lesson.


Learning lessons does not end.  If you are alive there are lessons to be learned.


“There” is no better than “here.”  When your “there” has become your “here” you will obtain another “there,” that will, again look better than “here.”


Others are simply mirrors of you.  You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something that you love or hate about yourself.


What you make of life is up to you.  You have all the tools and resources you need, what you do with them is up to you.  The choice is yours.
