Doug's Rules of Life

At the spa, on average, I worked on 800 people a year. I've had memorable clients to be sure (some for being stupid) but one of the clients I'll always remember was Doug. He had "Doug's Rules of Life"

There's only 3.

1. Love what you do. (Because when you're not at home, you're at work.)

2. Love where you live. (Because when you're not at work, you're at home. He meant, not only your abode but your climate and terrain.)

3. Love the people you choose to surround yourself with. (Family you can't do much about but the people you choose to hang out with - why hang out with people that are assholes or treat you like shit?)

Not many people get to achieve number 1. But two out of three ain't bad.

Still chasing number 1, Ruth!

P. S. The Subject title is not a typo. I'm going to start some memoirs/memories.
