7 Cardinal Rules of Life = Siete Reglas Cardinales de la Vida

1. Make peace with your past – so it won’t disturb your present.

2. What other people think of you – is none of your business.

3. Time heals almost everything – give it time.

4. No one is in charge – of your happiness. Except you!

5. Don’t compare your life to others – and don’t judge them. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

6. Stop thinking too much – it’s all right not to know all the answers. They will come to you when you least expect it.

7. Smile – you don’t own all the problems in the world.

This woman was an unwitting crossing guard for me. I waited to cross the busy street until she did, and when we were halfway across, I said “Gracias!” and she laughed. Costa Ricans are pura vida.

Kyivska Perepichka ! A perpetually long queue moves quickly towards a window where two women hand out pieces of fried dough enclosing a mouthwatering sausage. The place became a local institution long before the first ‘hot dog’ hit town. AN ESSENTIAL KYIV EXPERIENCE. https://www.lonelyplanet.com/ukraine/kyiv/restaurants/kyivska-perepichka/a/poi-eat/1276912/360928
