Your rules are good ones to live by. They can enrich your life, can't they? Hope all is well. Have a great day.

That list is awesome. The only things I would add (for my own list) are: wear glitter, sing your heart out, you are never too old to try something new and slay your fears at least once a week.

I just bought a pair of 5 inch heels and I feel so awesome in them!

*Never seek revenge

*Eat food you enjoy. Life is too short to eat bad food.
