So, here are the rules -
Rule 1: Without changing the first word, after each letter of the alphabet, write a sentence that captures you/your essence .I fear my essence is very flippant - but that's how I am
Rule 2: Tag as many people as you want, but do tag at least one. This is an eye opening experience and can express to those who read it, things about you that they did not really understand before.
Rule 3: List who you are tagging.
So here it goes.
*A* Accept the truth about yourself even if it is unkind and then work on it .
*B* Break barriers
*C* Create an ideal environment which helps others to thrive and give their best
*D* Decide on what you want and do it - DONT DITHER AND WAFFLE -its maddening
*E* Explore your mind and cleanse it of all bitterness - it eats into the psyche like cancer and makes you a pain you know where
*F*Forgive because life is too short to harbor grudges - let that sad bastard know you didnt like what he did but that you are magnanimous anyway .
*G* Grow out of any pettiness that has accumulated inside you -be ashamed a little every time you are petty and you'll soon stop being petty.
*H* Hope to bring a little laughter and joy in other people's lives
*I* Ignore pompous asses - they don't count
*J* Journey into yourself first before dissecting others
*K* Know all that is possible for you to learn and teach it to others
*L* Love your family and keep them close to you with the bonds of love ,not duty
*M* Manage your emotions so that they do not get out of hand - in short keep your cool even if it means counting ten ten times over every time you want to hit the roof
*N*Notice everything around you because all of it may matter - keep your eyes and ears open but don't talk too much .
*O* Open your mind to change and new ideas
*P* Play because you would end up a pompous idiot otherwise
*Q* Question when in doubt
*R* Relax after a hard day's work
*S* Share whatever you wish to with others
*T* Try hard and you will succeed - as the sage said
*U* Use wisely and well but don't hurt anyone in the process
*V* Value whatever you have and be content - the grass only looks greener on the other side
*W* Work hard because its good for your body and your soul
*X* - Xerox all the papers you think might bounce back at you in the future and secrete them awat somewhere safe
*Y *- Yield to others without compromising on your values, ethics and convictions
