I am posting this list from the Dalai Lama- notes for the New Year:

    • Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
    • When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
    • Follow the three R’s= Respect for self, Respect for others, Responsibility for all of your actions.
    • Learn  the rules so you know how to break them properly.
    • Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a great stroke of luck.
    • Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.Spend some time alone every day.
    • Open your arms to change but don’t let go of your values.Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
    • Live a good, honorable life- then when you get older and think back, you will be able to enjoy it a second time.
    • A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation of your life.
    • In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.
    • Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.
    • Be gentle with the earth.Once a year, go someplace you have never been before.
    • Remember that the best relationship in one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.
    • Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
    • Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.
