I saw some Rules for Living posted by George Takei on his Facebook page awhile back and I have to agree that they are some good rules! They are:
1. Show up. 2. On time. 3. Work hard. 4. Be kind. 5. Floss.
I want to add to that from yours truly:
A good rule of thumb when cleaning the house: When in doubt, don’t be gross.
It really helps me take that extra step when I’m too tired!
I also recommend my own personal mantra: OWN IT.
Seriously. I second guess myself a lot, and sometimes worry about what others think, or am down on myself in a self-deprecating way.. and it really works. Dribble coffee on your shirt? Own it. Say something dumb? Own it and get over it.
OWN YOURSELF. It really makes a difference and feels better. This especially works if you are one of these. Like me.
