Life can be frustrating at times… and sometimes over the smallest things. It’s during those times that we just need to take time out, step back and think of the things we’ve learned or perhaps the knowledge we acquired by doing it the ‘wrong way’ the fist time around. Those are the times we just need to remember WHAT the Rules of Life really are…
So here’s a simple reminder of some of the wise things we’ve learned over the years.
Apply them again as necessary!
