Thank you for the heads-up. "we are in fact like entering into a university. Everyday is a new lesson." This is an excellent perspective. Unfortunately, I don't study all of this enough.

I almost can see what my future work will be. This has been true in this lifetime: "even if there are wicked people who block your road, you have to face such situations and deal with them." I've wanted to quit the course but realize the reason it is so difficult may be because I've dropped the curriculum before...lol 'gallows laugh'

This is excellent. Yes, I would definitely love the whole book.

    Thank you ahead of time. I am always reading at least one spiritual book while I read a novel of some sort. This will be one of the next ones.

    I know I will. It is the kind that gets me to think. Because I read about one paragraph a day, it give me time to think. What often happens is that the other spiritual books I'm reading tie in. So I look forward to that.

I love this, it was very thorough and well structured. I love how you quoted Confucius, and refer to the Eastern religions and balance. I love the section on relax relax relax, and I agree with you that one can choose to be happy under most circumstances, it is all a matter of perspective and I'm coming to learn this myself now. I really appreciated reading this, and it came at a very good time for me to receive this uplifting and life enriching information. Thanks again for your review, I like to try to return as many as I can.

Blessings, balance, and beauty

Thank you so much for sharing from your life. You live up to your name as GoodAdviceChan. You have given us lots of good advice in this post. I like your reference to Confucius and the importance of considering others. That's so needed today. And being grateful makes us happy people.

All your need is your determination. (I suggest: All you need...)

Thank you for this powerful reminder. I have not experienced life in the way you have, but as all people, have had many difficult times. In the past I have found myself too wrapped up in the situation to be able to find happiness. Not until later in my life have I learned to find happiness no matter the situation, even if it is not a happy situation. Thank you for your tips in finding happiness, and especially the reminder that our attitude and outlook makes all the difference.

I enjoyed reading your contest entry. I am pretty sure it is much easier to say relax than it is to actually relax. You have given great advice and I am sure it works. Good luck with the contest.

Great writing!! Incredibly valid for all of your readers, despite of our age, status and religion. You find the key to open the door of happiness and you share openly in this writing. You are perfectly right: happiness asks for us to "do our part": put our positive attitude and leave a small place for sadness as it shades our vision of life. Great job and thanks for sharing your life experience with us all!!

Dear writer:
I was swept away by many precepts in you writing, which is excellent.
Life is too short not to treasure it, love thy neighbor, do something meaningful, let go of the past: these are all instructions to lead a good life.
Excellent work, writer.
Congratulations on getting a book published.
Best wishes for all your writing.
Your struggle in youth is admirable and must have made you a strong person
Blessings,
Cindy

All this advice is great. I think I already live by most of it. I find life to be a wonderful adventure, and I enjoy it still at 83. I have a passion for learning new things and like challenging puzzles and trivia games. I have some pains, but nothing I can't deal with and I thoroughly enjoy the people in my life, but I'm also content living alone. I enjoyed reading this, and I hope you live by your own advice.

treat each failure as a leaning experience. (learning experience) in step 3 paragraph 4.

    You are a wonderful lady to live alone... Be safe and healthy. I too have been living alone for almost ten years. Due to Pandemic, I moved to live with my daughter last year.

    Personally I think young people should read it. My friend used to say, "Why don't you write this when we were younger."

Your essay provides an excellent framework for people to follow. I see it leans towards Confucius as a moral guide; Christians have Jesus for similar guidance - both valid examples.

Your personal background story is beyond my imagination for how awful aspects of your life must have been... so you are a wonderful example of how to be positive, to look on the best in people, to have an open mind, and to treat people in good conscience. Clearly you have followed your own advice. It would be a different world if everyone else did too.
