A Manifesto to Live By...

I posted this to our Facebook Page a while ago and it got a ton of great feedback, so I thought I'd share it here too because I know not all of you are on Facebook.  This is a manifesto created by the company Holstee which is a project that was started back in 2009 by two brothers and a friend.  Their goal is to "design with a conscience, and offer a place for mindful individuals to find meaningful products".  Anyway, I love this company and their manifesto and think that these words pave a path to a full and happy life.  If you are interested in buying a poster of this, you can find it here - thanks to fellow blogger Verena for finding it's origin!

If you were to create one, how would your manifesto read?

"If You don't like Your job quit" is maybe a bit lightly put these days.

When there are more and more people who would be happy to get any kind of work to support them and their families.

I like the thought behind of the manifesto though that make the best of what You've got (and stop whining ;)).

Many feel that the corrupt bank system (both US & EU) has drawn the mat from under their feet.

Yes, I agree Tytti - not everyone can just up and "quit" their job and many people would kill for any job, but the overall tone and message of this manifesto is the simple fact that you are in control of your life, and you can make positive changes in your life by doing a few simple things. THAT is the message I hear when I read this.

One of the guiding rules in my life has been that if I'm not happy with something, it's up to me to change it. No one else is responsible for my life. No one else is going to care as much about what's happening to me as I do. It's up to me to make the most of it.

I love that manifesto and somehow I missed it on FB. Thanks for re-posting it.
