“Golden Rules for Living” Creating Memories as you Re-remember

I was getting ready to relocate my office space and came across the following news article I had saved from many years ago.  The article was addressed to “Dear Gram”.   Is there anything you can relate to here that your grandma or someone special might have said to you and that you now say to some people in your life?

Golden Rules for Living

1. If you open it close it.

2. If you turn it on turn it off.

3. If you unlock it, lock it up.

4. If you break it, admit it.

5. If you can’t fix it, call in someone who can.

6. If you borrow it, return it.

7. If you value it, take care of it.

8. If you make a mess, clean it up.

9. If you move it, put it back.

10. If it belongs to someone else and you want to use it, get permission

11. If you don’t know how to operate it, leave it alone.

12. If it’s none of your business, don’t ask questions.

13. If it is not broken, don’t fix it.

14. If it will brighten someone’s day, say it.

15. If it will tarnish someone’s reputation, keep it to yourself.

Creating memories as you re-remember your life’s story.
