List of 20 things...

ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully

TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other. (if you get married at all!)

THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want. (need to work on the sleep & spending bit)

FOUR. When you say, 'I love you ,' mean it. (i do....although I love too easily)

FIVE. When you say, 'I'm sorry,' look the person in the eye

SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight. (NO!)

EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who don't have dreams don't have much. (I need some of those...)

NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely. (I do believe that this is how I live my life! Whaddya say?)

TEN.. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling. (That's awfully hard...also...never bring the past into it)

ELEVEN. Don't judge people by their relatives. (Oh god please don't.)

TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly. (hmm......slowwww dowwwwn)

THIRTEEN. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, 'Why do you want to know?' (good tactic!)

FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

FIFTEEN. Say 'bless you' when you hear someone sneeze.

SIXTEEN. When you lose, don't lose the lesson !

SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions.

EIGHTEEN. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship...

NINETEEN. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

TWENTY.. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice. (very true! I hate how John answers the phone, like you're bothering him!)

TWENTY-ONE. Spend some time alone. (I think I need this. Because really my alone time consists of Wow (with other people) and goodreads/myspace (again, with other people))

These are great... except for the love at first sight thing. I don't believe in that, either!
