    "So live your life so the fear of death can never enter your heart.

    Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their views, and demand that they respect yours.

    Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life.

    Seek to make your life long and of service to your people.

    Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.

    Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a stranger if in a lonely place.

    Show respect to all people, but grovel to none.

    When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life and strength.

    Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living.

    If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies in yourself.

    Touch not the poisonous firewater that makes wise ones turn to fools and robs them of their visions.

    When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death,
    so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time
    to live their lives over again in a different way.
    Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home."

    - Tecumseh.

    A 50- something year old white woman arrived at her seat on a crowded flight and immediately didn't want the seat. The seat was next to a black man. Disgusted, the woman immediately summoned the flight attendant and demanded a new seat. The woman said "I cannot sit here next to this black man."

    The fight attendant said "Let me see if I can find another seat."

    After checking, the flight attendant returned and stated "Ma'am, there are no more seats in economy, but I will check with the captain and see if there is something in first class."

    About 10 minutes went by and the flight attendant returned and stated "The captain has confirmed that there are no more seats in economy, but there is one in first class. It is our company policy to never move a person from economy to first class, but being that it would be some sort of scandal to force a person to sit next to an UNPLEASANT person, the captain agreed to make the switch to first class."

    Before the woman could say anything, the attendant gestured to the black man and said, "Therefore sir, if you would so kindly retrieve your personal items, we would like to move you to the comfort of first class as the captain doesn't want you to sit next to an unpleasant person."

    Passengers in the seats nearby began to applause while some gave a standing ovation.


    ** If you are against racism, share this. Side note/ fyi: Since sharing this we've come to learn that this is only a fictional story, but still worthy of posting.

    There is nothing
    quite like a week at
    SCOUT CAMP!

    We know we can depend on each other
    because a Scout is
    TRUSTWORTHY

    Every Scout supports his fellow Scouts,
    his Patrol, and his Troop
    because a Scout is
    LOYAL

    No Scout faces a challenge, a task
    or a problem on his own
    because a Scout is
    HELPFUL

    No Scout is left out
    or feels lonely
    because a Scout is
    FRIENDLY


    We are considerate of each other,
    our leadership and the camp staff
    because a Scout is
    COURTEOUS

    Everything that walks, flies and crawls
    is safe from harm
    because a Scout is
    KIND

    We cooperate together to achieve
    because a Scout is
    OBEDIENT


    If the going gets tough no
    one will be down for long
    because a Scout is
    CHEERFUL

    We’ll take advantage of every opportunity
    because a Scout is
    THRIFTY

    We will conquer every
    challenge and overcome
    every obstacle
    because a Scout is
    BRAVE

    Our camp is spotless,
    our speech is reserved,
    and our thoughts are lofty
    because a Scout is
    CLEAN

    We have respect and understanding
    for each other, creation,
    and the Creator
    because a Scout is
    REVERENT

    Family isn’t always blood. They’re the people in your life who appreciate having you in theirs – the ones who encourage you to improve in healthy and exciting ways, and who not only embrace who you are now, but also embrace and embody who you want to be. These people – your real family – are the ones who truly matter.

    1. FREE YOURSELF FROM NEGATIVE PEOPLE.
    Spend time with nice people who are smart, driven and likeminded. Relationships should help you, not hurt you. Surround yourself with people who reflect the person you want to be. Choose friends who you are proud to know, people you admire, who love and respect you – people who make your day a little brighter simply by being in it. Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. When you free yourself from negative people, you free yourself to be YOU – and being YOU is the only way to truly live.

    2. LET GO OF THOSE WHO ARE ALREADY GONE.
    The sad truth is that there are some people who will only be there for you as long as you have something they need. When you no longer serve a purpose to them, they will leave. The good news is, if you tough it out, you’ll eventually weed these people out of your life and be left with some great people you can count on. We rarely lose friends and lovers, we just gradually figure out who our real ones are. So when people walk away from you, let them go. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you. It doesn’t mean they are bad people; it just means that their part in your story is over.

    3. GIVE PEOPLE YOU DON’T KNOW A FAIR CHANCE.
    When you look at a person, any person, remember that everyone has a story. Everyone hasgone through something that has changed them, and forced them to grow. Every passing face on the street represents a story every bit as compelling and complicated as yours. We meet no ordinary people in our lives. If you give them a chance, everyone has something amazing to offer. So appreciate the possibility of new relationships as you naturally let go of old ones that no longer work. Trust your judgment. Embrace new relationships, knowing that you are entering into unfamiliar territory. Be ready to learn, be ready for a challenge, and be ready to meet someone that might just change your life forever.

    4. SHOW EVERYONE KINDNESS AND RESPECT.

    Treat everyone with kindness and respect, even those who are rude to you – not because they are nice, but because you are. There are no boundaries or classes that define a group of people that deserve to be respected. Treat everyone with the same level of respect you would give to your grandfather and the same level of patience you would have with your baby brother. People will notice your kindness.

    5. ACCEPT PEOPLE JUST THE WAY THEY ARE.
    In most cases it’s impossible to change them anyway, and it’s rude to try. So save yourself from needless stress. Instead of trying to change others, give them your support and lead by example.

    6. ENCOURAGE OTHERS AND CHEER FOR THEM.
    Having an appreciation for how amazing the people around you are leads to good places – productive, fulfilling, peaceful places. So be happy for those who are making progress. Cheer for their victories. Be thankful for their blessings, openly. What goes around comes around, and sooner or later the people you’re cheering for will start cheering for you.

    7. BE YOUR IMPERFECTLY PERFECT SELF.
    In this crazy world that’s trying to make you like everyone else, find the courage to keep being your awesome self. And when they laugh at you for being different, laugh back at them for being the same. Spend more time with those who make you smile and less time with those who you feel pressured to impress. Be your imperfectly perfect self around them. We are not perfect for everyone, we are only perfect for those select few people that really take the time to get to know us and love us for who we really are. And to those select few, being our imperfectly perfect self is what they love about us.

    8. FORGIVE PEOPLE AND MOVE FORWARD.
    Don’t live your life with hate in your heart. You will end up hurting yourself more than the people you hate. Forgiveness is not saying, “What you did to me is okay.” It is saying, “I’m not going to let what you did to me ruin my happiness forever.” Forgiveness is the remedy. It doesn’t mean you’re erasing the past, or forgetting what happened. It means you’re letting go of the resentment and pain, and instead choosing to learn from the incident and move on with your life. Remember, the less time you spend hating the people who hurt you, the more time you’ll have to love the people who love you.

    9. DO LITTLE THINGS EVERY DAY FOR OTHERS.
    Sometimes those little things occupy the biggest part of their hearts. You can’t be everything to everyone, but you can be everything to a few people. Decide who these people are in your life and treat them like royalty.

    10. PAY ATTENTION TO WHO YOUR REAL FRIENDS ARE.
    As we grow up, we realize it becomes less important to have more friends and more important to have real ones. Remember, life is kind of like a party. You invite a lot of people, some leave early, some stay all night, some laugh with you, some laugh at you, and some show up really late. But in the end, after the fun, there are a few who stay to help you clean up the mess. And most of the time, they aren’t even the ones who made the mess. These people are your real friends in life. They are the ones who matter most.

    11. ALWAYS BE LOYAL.
    True love and real friendship aren’t about being inseparable. These relationships are about two people being true to each other even when they are separated. When it comes to relationships, remaining faithful is never an option, but a priority. Loyalty is everything.

    12. STAY IN BETTER TOUCH WITH PEOPLE WHO MATTER TO YOU.
    In human relationships distance is not measured in miles, but in affection. Two people can be right next to each other, yet miles apart. So don’t ignore someone you care about, because lack of concern hurts more than angry words. Stay in touch with those who matter to you. Not because it’s convenient, but because they’re worth the extra effort. Remember, you don’t need a certain number of friends, just a number of friends you can be certain of. Paying attention to these people is a priority.

    13. KEEP YOUR PROMISES AND TELL THE TRUTH.
    If you say you’re going to do something, DO IT! If you say you’re going to be somewhere, BE THERE! If you say you feel something, MEAN IT! If you can’t, won’t, and don’t, then DON’T LIE. It’s always better to tell people the truth up front. Don’t play games with people’s heads and hearts. Don’t tell half-truths and expect people to trust you when the full truth comes out; half-truths are no better than lies. Remember, love and friendship don’t hurt. Lying, cheating and screwing with people’s feelings and emotions hurts. Never mess with someone’s feelings just because you’re unsure of yours. Always be open and honest.

    14. GIVE WHAT YOU WANT TO RECEIVE.
    Don’t expect what you are not willing to give. Start practicing the golden rule. If you want love, give love. If you want friends, be friendly. If you want money, provide value. It works. It really is this simple.

    15. SAY WHAT YOU MEAN AND MEAN WHAT YOU SAY.
    Give the people in your life the information they need, rather than expecting them to know the unknowable. Information is the grease that keeps the engine of communication functioning. Start communicating clearly. Don’t try to read other people’s minds, and don’t make other people try to read yours. Most problems, big and small, within a family, friendship, or business relationships, start with bad communication.

    16. ALLOW OTHERS TO MAKE THEIR OWN DECISIONS.
    Do not judge others by your own past. They are living a different life than you are. What might be good for one person may not be good for another. What might be bad for one person might change another person’s life for the better. Allow people to make their own mistakes and their own decisions.

    17. TALK A LITTLE LESS, AND LISTEN MORE.
    Less advice is often the best advice. People don’t need lots of advice, they need a listening ear and some positive reinforcement. What they want to know is often already somewhere inside of them. They just need time to think, be and breathe, and continue to explore the undirected journeys that will eventually help them find their direction.

    18. LEAVE PETTY ARGUMENTS ALONE.
    Someone else doesn’t have to be wrong for you to be right. There are many roads to what’s right. And most of the time it just doesn’t matter that much.

    19. IGNORE UNCONSTRUCTIVE, HURTFUL COMMENTARY.
    No one has the right to judge you. They might have heard your stories, but they didn’t feel what you were going through. No matter what you do, there will always be someone who thinks differently. So concentrate on doing what you know in your heart is right. What most people think and say about you isn’t all that important. What is important is how you feel about yourself.

    20. PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOURSELF.
    One of the most painful things in life is losing yourself in the process of loving others too much, and forgetting that you are special too. When was the last time someone told you that they loved you just the way you are, and that what you think and how you feel matters? When was the last time someone told you that you did a good job, or took you someplace, simply because they know you feel happy when you’re there? When was the last time that ‘someone’ was YOU?

    I don’t especially care what your race, religion, sexual preference,
    ethnicity, political affiliation or economic status is.

    I do have a bias against assholes.

    If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience…I will dispense this advice now.

    Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded. But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked….You’re not as fat as you imagine.

    Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

    Do one thing everyday that scares you

    Sing

    Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours.

    Floss

    Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with yourself.

    Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

    Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.

    Stretch

    Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don’t.

    Get plenty of calcium.

    Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.

    Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary…what ever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s.

    Enjoy your body, use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own..

    Dance…
    even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

    Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them.

    Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

    Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for good.

    Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

    Understand that friends come and go, but for the precious few you should hold on.

    Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

    Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.

    Travel.

    Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

    Respect your elders.

    Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out.

    Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will look 85.

    Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it.

    Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.

    But trust me on the sunscreen…
    Laissez les bon temps rouler! Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.** a 4 day work week & sex slaves ~ I say Tyt for PRESIDENT! Not to be taken internally, literally or seriously ....Suki ebaynni IS THAT BETTER ?
