What are the guiding principles that you have discovered in your life? If you need a little coaxing to think about it, take a look at the list of 10 that sprung to mind for me, as I considered such things as relationships, work and maintaining balance...
Keep a pair of jandals outside all main entrances to your home
Make time for your partner and insist that you both continue to do the things that make you feel sexy
It’s positive to get lost in your work but negative to hide in it
There is always a sun-filled day of glassy peeling waves ahead
Love is a good thing
Continually work on your skills of listening
Always try to eat something with your coffee
Smiling is a free gift that rewards yourself and others
We are made of energy, as are all things around us
If you're spending a lot of your day in bare feet, then chances are you have found the kind of balance that Hook & Arrow writer Alison Smith has found in life.
