Making a List, Checking it Twice
It's definitely the season for lists -- presents to buy, cards to send, movies to watch, parties to attend, menus to organize, groceries to pick - up, chores to complete. In the course of my general, random reading over the weekend, I came across several lists that went way beyond the usual "ten ways to prepare for the holidays" or "ten tips for winterizing your beauty routine."
These insightful, memorable lists are more about winterizing (or summer - izing) your heart and soul. Allow me to summarize:
My friend Meta suggested:
Eight things cultured people do differently, according to Chekhov
Six Life Lessons from Tolstoy
a Three - point formula for happiness
Five tips for emotional wellness
thanks to Ann Dibble for this helpful list of
why not to criticize
and to Patricia Henley for
"Mentally Strong People: The 13 Things They Avoid"
Lots of excellent advice here for the upcoming New Year!
