Sing in the shower.
Treat everyone you meet like you want to be treated.
Watch a sunrise at least once a year.
Never refuse homemade brownies.
Strive for excellence, not perfection.
Plant a tree on your birthday.
Learn three clean jokes.
Return borrowed vehicles with the gas tank full.
Never waste an oppoturnity to tell someone you love them.
Leave everything a little better than you found it.
Keep it simple.
Think big thoughts, but relish small pleasures.
Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.
Be forgiving on yourself and others.
Say "thank you" a lot.
Say "please" a lot.
Avoid negative people.
Wear polished shoes.
Remember other peoples birthdays.
Commit yourself to constant improvement.
Have a firm handshake.
Send lots of Valentines cards, sign them.
Look people in the eye.
Be the first to say "hello".
Return all things you borrow.
Make new friends but cherise the old ones.
Plant flowers every spring.
Have a dog.
Always accept an outstreched hand.
Stop blaming others.
Take responsibility for every area of your life.
Wave at kids in school busses.
Be there when people need you.
Don't expect life to be fair.
Never underestimate the power of love.
Drink champange for no reason at all.
Live your life as an exclamation, not an explanation.
Don't be afraid to say "I made a mistake".
Don't be afraid to say "I don't know".
Compliment even small improvements.
Keep your promises no matter what.
Marry only for love.
Rekindle old friendships.
Count your blessings.
Call your mother. And your father too if they happen to be alive.
