[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Stopolisms

Don't keep score. If you bring "obligation" into the equation, it makes
everything janky. We all do favours (personally, I'm leery of favours) for
each other and hope that it will be reciprocated - reciprocity is such a
beautiful part of being human...together.But...really really really it
doesn't matter what you did for anyone yesterday. Really it doesn't. Don't
let it. You gave it. Let it go. No one owes you anything. Danielle La Porte

Top Ten Stopolisms 1. Stop the need to be in control - give people a chance to rise to the
occasion 2. Stop being fake - yea just stop that 3. Stop gossiping -talk about something in your own life that you can take
the time to improve 4. Stop trying to prove that you right - would you rather be right or be
happy? 5. Stop toting feelings - let it go 6. Stop making excuses - mainly because of fear 7. Stop justifying yours and other people's bad behaviour 8. Stop lying to yourself 9. Stop playing small 10. Stop people pleasing in order to be liked

Peace
