45 Rules For Living Your Life
This lens contains what I & quite a few others pertain to be the "45 golden rules for living your life by". I recently received these 45 rules from a dear friend of mine who always seems to know when I am questioning life and dealing with some personal life issues...and more so when I say out loud "God help me please". I felt it only right to share these rules with you all and hope that they answer some of the questions you have about how your life should be lived.
The 45 rules of living life were written originally by a lady of 90 years old who wanted to leave something worthwhile behind for all the world to share and enjoy, we don't know her name or where she was from but we do know that she loved life and lived it to the full as you will learn when you read her 45 rules...and at 90 years old I think you will agree when I say "if anyone knows then she should"....Brightest-Blessings..x
