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.
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.
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.
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.
When we hold onto old habits, old thoughts, old clothes, old memories, we limit ourselves. We limit the space in our wardrobes, mind, time; in our life. Take a review of your stuffs, habits, thoughts, memories, put the ones that don’t serve you anymore in a big bag and put them out of your life. Now you can breathe and let the new in.

"…..relationships do sometimes end. And when they do, I struggle with letting go. I’m working on accepting these losses as a gain in knowledge; to realize that everyone who comes into my life, for now matter how long, teaches me something.…….I’m grateful for all the relationships in my life, for helping to shape me to be who I am.”
“A genuine relationship is one that is not dominated by the ego with its image-making and self-seeking. In a genuine relationship, there is an outward flow of open, alert attention toward the other person in which there is no wanting whatsoever.”—Eckhart Tolle
No more excuses. Stop postponing changes you have been wanting to make in your life. Starting now, plan how you will integrate the new habit or start the new activity and make time for it. You know you feel better doing it than procrastinating on it.
“The old river in its broad reach rested unruffled at the decline of day, after ages of good service done to the race that peopled its banks, spread out in the tranquil dignity of a waterway leading to the uttermost ends of the earth.”—
Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness, Part 1 (via twomileranch).
