RULES FOR LIFE
Today is International Women’s Day. A day that celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and reinforces a call to action for gender parity.
Some of you believe in celebrating days like this and some do not.
That’s ok, if this isn’t for you, feel free to leave (see Rule Number 9).
At this point in my own life, I’m looking at the downhill trail of the mountain I’ve climbed. I’ve learned a few things along the way and I wanted to share those with you on this special day. Perhaps it will make some other woman’s path easier.
This is a list that I’ve been keeping and altering for a very long time. Some of these rules came from someone else, pieces of wisdom picked up along the way.
It goes without saying that I believe in being kind, helping others and so forth. Instead, these were hard fought lessons I’ve had to learn. None came as easily as offering others kindness. None were things I picked up from childhood.
Sometimes I have had to learn these rules again and again.
This list of rules keeps me safe, tells me what to watch out for and for what to keep my eyes open in wonder.
I would love to hear what you have to say about your own rules for life.
I hope you find a piece of your own truth herein.
