The Ten Other Commandments

1. Thou shall not worry needlessly about mistakes.
You aren't unworthy or incapable just because you
made some
mistakes. Remember that mistakes are
necessary for growth.

2. Thou shall not control things.
Your way is not always the best way. Remain
open-minded, and
don't worry if things don't go as expected.

3. Thou shall not blame others.
Don't make others responsible for your happiness.
You are in
control of your happiness, and you can
choose to make the day
a positive one.

4. Thou shall not worry.
Don't worry about the things that you can't change
or have no
control over. Have faith that storms never
last long and tomorrow
will be brighter.

5. Thou shall never surrender.
You must try to climb that hill even when it seems
too steep.
No matter how difficult the task seems,
it's better to try than
to wonder if you could have succeeded.

6. Thou shall grow.
Never think that you have to stay where you are in life.
new day offers an opportunity for change.

7. Thou shall not judge others harshly.
Try to accept other people for who they are.
Just because
someone is different from you,
doesn't mean they are inferior.

Everyone was created in God's image.

8. Thou shall not fret over other's opinions.
Not everyone will like you, and some people
will criticize you,
but you must not feel unworthy.
You need no one's approval
to be you.

9. Thou shall not doubt your ability.
You should always have faith in yourself.
Refuse to give the
negative voice in your head
an audience.

10. Thou shall not fix the world.
It's good to help others, but remember that you
can't fix
everyone's problems.
