In 2011, my girlfriend Sherrie send me an email entitled “Keys to a Happy Life”. I printed it out and posted it on my cubicle wall so that I could read it daily.

Then in 2015, I posted it on my first blog, DeDivahDeals, and now I have decided to post it again here for Wellness Wednesday.


  1. Compliment 3 people every day
  2. Watch a sunrise
  3. Be the first to say, “hello”
  4. Live beneath your means
  5. Treat everyone as you want to be treated
  6. Never give up on anybody, miracles happen
  7. Forget the Joneses
  8. Pray not for things but for wisdom and courage
  9. Be tough-minded but tender hearted
  10. Remember someone’s name
  11. Be kinder than you have to be
  12. Don’t forget that a person’s greatest emotional need is to be appreciated
  13. Keep your promises
  14. Learn to show cheerfulness even when you don’t feel it
  15. Remember overnight success usually takes 15 years
  16. Leave everything better than you found it
  17. Remember that winners do what losers don’t want to do
  18. When you arrive at your job in the morning, let the first thing you say brighten someone’s day
  19. Don’t rain on other people’s parades
