Happiness Tip 9
Vivienne Barnes, Happiness Coach
Waterfall 2 photo by E Photos
..hello again..this is week nine..

the tip this week is based upon Rules for Living..

so...whilst we grow up we get from our parents, guardians and family that there are ways of being that become natural to us..and basically we can too easily assume that everyone's Rules for Living are the same...and guess what..they are not!..

..to make this more real for you let me share that I picked up from my Mum that 'you never go anywhere (on a visit to friends and family) empty handed'..I can even recall her pulling up beside the road and picking some flowers as a gift to an Auntie because she had forgotten to go shopping for something!..

..so..guess what...I do just the same...and if I don't for whatever reason I feel dreadfully guilty..because I have broken one of my Rules for Living..

..so can you understand the struggles I used to have when friends and family visited me and didn't bring anything..I have dealt with this by the way!..BUT..the thing for everyone to note is to be aware of their Rules for Living...and very importantly understand the Rules for Living that their friends or 'other half' has.
