Life can be magical when you have a clear set of personal rules to live by. Here are my top 10 picks for living a happy, abundant life. (I hope they inspire you to create your own set of rules for living life to its fullest.)
Life Rule #1: Look for the good side of everything
Whether it’s your partner, your brother, your pet, your home or work, try placing the majority of your attention on the things you really love and appreciate, rather than looking for the things you find tiresome or irritating.
Life Rule #2: Do what you love and love what you do.
Try, as much as possible, to live a life that is not tethered too tightly to the actions and opinions of others. Do what you love and love what you do.
Life Rule#3: Appreciate Where You Are Right Now
As you work your way toward your ultimate goals and dreams, make an intentional effort to recognize that where you stand in the present moment is as much a gift as where you are going. Every day, look for at least one thing about your life RIGHT NOW that satisfies you.
Life Rule #4: Have Some Fun
Laugh, dance, do something silly. Watch a funny movie, go for a swim, have lobster for dinner. Whatever you consider fun, pick something, and Just Do It.
Life Rule #5: Say What You Need to Say
Don’t hold back…if you want to say, “I love you,” say it. If you need to say, “You hurt me,” say that too.
Life Rule #6: Surround Yourself With People You Love
Make a list of the people who make you feel safe, inspired, happy, and motivated. Keep them close and let them know, on a regular basis, how much they mean to you.
Life Rule #7: Forget About The Money (If just for a little while)
Sure, money makes the world go ‘round, BUT if everything you do is monetarily based, you’re destined to miss a lot of life on the way to your “riches.” Make a habit of doing at least one thing every day that doesn’t cost you a penny or make you a dime.
Life Rule #8: Focus on what is not temporary
Contrary to popular belief, life is not about struggle, conflict and endurance. Often, simply deciding that you will look the other way, turn the other cheek, or smile and say “no problem,” can spell the difference between misery and happiness. It’s always your choice.
Life Rule #9: Think about the needs of others
Neither everything is about us, you have to decide be consumed by the needs of others too.
Life Rule #10: Put God above all else
God is our base. Your word, your love and your mighty hand can do everything. Our faith moves mountains and in his way and only in his way we will find happiness.
Anonymous said: do you have "cheat meals" if not, can you please explain the intuitively eating thing regarding cheat meals?
There is no such thing as a cheat meal because nothing is off limits. If I want to have candy for dinner, then I eat candy for dinner.
Think the departed meets saw. And Leonardo DiCaprio as the big boss with Jack Nicholson as his right hand man. Plus Chris issued O’Dowd as the main saw victim. And I get stuck in the middle.
Sheesh, you can’t make this stuff up.

Anonymous said: Why not care about the scale? Aren't you trying to lose weight?
Think about it.
Are you trying to see a certain number on the scale?
Or are you trying to look a certain way?
Who gives a fuck about the scale. Yes, it’s a tool to measure progress. But it literally just measures your weight, the pull of gravity on your body.
If you went to the moon right now, stepped on the scale, and saw that you weighed nothing, would you be happy?
No, you wouldn’t. Because you would still look the same. Using the scale is fine, but taking pictures every month has always been the most rewarding way for me to track progress!
