The Rules According to Sharon

Warning: This is not a technical post. After dealing with tech day in and day out (for example yesterday was all Azure) it can be hard to write about tech in my “free” time and sometimes I just need to do something different. Come back tomorrow for a riveting technical post on Storages Spaces in Server 2012 R2!!!

So far the year of 2014 has been the year of transitions.  I’ve had to make some changes and look at the way I live my life (how cliché is that?) I was thrown a curve ball last year and I could either bury myself in a hole or I could pick myself up to grow. As I’m not one too easily give up I chose to take advantage of a difficult situation and face it head on. During that process I have come up with my rules to live by.

  1. It is what it is, but if you don’t like it then you can change it.
  2. Get out of the box and push your boundaries, but remember you can go back into the box if it gets too overwhelming and you need to catch your breath.
  3. Always look for the upside! Yes, it’s raining but I don’t have to shovel it.
  4. Listen to music that makes you feel good. That may even include Nickleback (guilty pleasure).
  5. I’m not responsible for anyone else’s happiness (except my kids) but I am responsible to not hurt others.
  6. It’s ok to dance with the shopping cart in the grocery store.
  7. Take a break!
  8. Put your head in the right space.
  9. Don’t be scared of your feelings but keep them in check.
  10. Never grow up but be responsible.
  11. Never stop learning.
  12. Read something other than a manual once in a while.
  13. There’s more to life than work.
  14. Take a nap.
  15. Take a calculated risk.
  16. Ask others for help and allow them to help when they offer.
  17. Appreciate all the good in everything and everyone.
  18. Follow your heart but listen to your gut.
  19. Don’t let people get under your skin.
  20. Face your fears (worms and heights) and stand up for yourself.
  21. Have fun and be yourself.
  22. Write more.
  23. Get more sleep.
  24. Enjoy the little things.
  25. Drive fast (within reason and safely), play it loud and sing.

Life is too damn short to be miserable so enjoy every day and come up with your own list that makes you and the others around you happy.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing
    the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers
    and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good
    platform.

    Truly when someone doesn’t know afterward its up to other
    viewers that they will assist, so here it happens.

    I’m not sure where you’re getting your info, but good topic.
    I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more.
    Thanks for great info I was looking for this info for my mission.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s
    equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell
    you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not
    enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am
    very happy I came across this during my search
    for something relating to this.

    Asking questions are genuinely fastidious thing if you are
    not understanding anything entirely, but this post provides pleasant understanding yet.

    from this post.
