1. Count your troubles, name them one by one - at the breakfast
table, if anybody will listen, or as soon as possible thereafter.


2. Worry every day about something. Don't let yourself get out of practice.


3. Pity yourself. If you do enough of this, nobody else will have to do it for you.


4. Make it your business to find out what the Joneses are buying this year and where they're going. Try to do them at least one
better even if you have to take out another loan.


5. Stay away from absolutes. It's what's right for you that matters.
Be your own person and don't allow yourself to get hung up on
what others expect of you.


6. Make sure you get your rights. Never mind other people's.
You have your life to live, they have theirs.


7. Don't fall into any compassion traps - the sort of situation
where people can walk all over you. if you get too involved in other people's troubles, you may neglect your own.

    Yep. You've struck the nail on the head. Keeping up with the Jones's will do it every time!! Great list. We should just do the opposite right?? Thanks for sharing it!

    I had to smile as I read your list. Its a great list, and makes you stop and think. You have definately nailed it. I'm glad we all have things to be thankful for.

    Sad that there are more people who are good at making themselves miserable than there are who decide to be happy.

    I have a fortune cookie fortune that I have kept posted on my refrigerator for over 10 years. It reads "Always remember: No one can make you feel bad without your consent." thanks for sharing!

    You are SO right about these! I know some people who seem to take each one to heart. Life's too short for all that.

    Viamarie - if I wouldn't know you better and I know you doing the totally opposite--I would have gasp...
    Sometimes I encounter people who think that way 24/7. Very sad.

    Blessings to your day and always.
