4 Agreements to make with Yourself

This was adapted from Don Miguel Ruiz's book, The Four Agreements

agreement 1

Be impeccable with your word - Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

agreement 2

Don't take anything personally - Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering.

agreement 3

Don't make assumptions - Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

agreement 4

Always do your best - Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.

This is a great list to live by, and I think most of them will eventually come naturally as we age. I have learned to say exactly what I mean to ask exactly what I want to know. It takes too much time and energy to beat around the bush.

Am really loving your blog. It's so positive. Are you finding your nitch here yet? LOL
