How many times do you see posts & signs telling us to “Make your own rules.”? Frankly? This is very generic advice and not particularly good advice either. 

Rather the goal is to know the rules, decide what fits for your life and make adjustments as necessary.

To completely make your own rules? That’s silly. IF you do, you likely won’t be very healthy or happy. Heck — you might not stay alive very long either! 

Focus on not what you might have to do or even need to do but HOW you’ll do what needs to be done. When we understand the correlation between the HOW we do anything and HOW we feel about our lives — our sense of daily satisfaction is significantly elevated.

This is it. Yes, it is your life. Mine, too, along with everyone else’s. There are rules. It’s our job to learn them, work them, respect them, rewrite as necessary, and interpret with our own personal HOW-power! 

Understanding this is wisdom…and makes for a more peaceful life as well.
