    Dec 27 2011: The three top lessons that have made me a content person are:
    1. I have no way of controlling what others say and do, I can only control my reaction.
    2. I might not be able to change my circumstances in life, but I can certainly change my attitude.
    3. People need to feel loved. Show others you love and respect them always.

    1. You can't control everything. You can do what you can, but something might spring up that changes your life forever.
    2. Asking for help is completely okay--as long as you're polite about it, of course.
    3. The action of an idea is more powerful than an idea in itself.

      Dec 15 2011: Hello Elizabeth,
      Third world countries must learn your third lesson. Their ideas and projects don't leave the papers easily. Continuous meetings and nothing implemented.
      I'll have to learn your second lesson, as I don't like asking for help, unless I desperately have to.
      Thanks for sharing
