The following is copied from a newspaper. It was written  by Ann Landers many years ago.I present it to you with love. If anybody writes it in Thai,it is your kindness.


Things you should do to make this year the best ever.


Dear Readers. If some lines in todays column sound vaguely familiar, you have a good memory. They appeared in this space last year. Not much about New Years Day has changed, so thank you for allowing me to loaf a little, dear readers.

Let this new  year be better than all of the others.

Vow to do some of the things youve always wanted to do but couldnt find the time.


Call up a forgotten friend. Drop an old grudge and replace it with some pleasant memories.  Share   a funny story with someone whose spirits are dragging.


Vow not to  make  a  promise you dont think you can keep. Pay a debt. Give a soft answer. Free yourself of envy and malice. Encourage some youth to do his or her best. Share your experience and offer encouragement.

Make a real effort to stay in closer touch with family and good friends. Resolve to stop magnifying small problems and shooting from the lip.


 Find the time.  All  of  us  have  the  same allotment.24 hours a day. Give a compliment. It could make someones day. Think things through. Forgive an injustice. Listen more.


Apologize   when  you  realize  you  were  wrong. An apology never diminishes a person. It elevates him. Dont blow   your own horn. if youve done something praiseworthy, someone will notice sooner or later.


Try to understand a point of view that is different from your own. Few things are 100 per cent one way or another. Examine your demands on others. Lighten up. Take a quiet walk alone when you feel like blowing your top. Laugh the loudest when the joke is on you.


The sure way to have   a  friend  is to be one. We are all connected by our humanity and our need for   one   another. Avoid malcontents   and   pessimists. They drag you down and contribute nothing. Be kind. Dont discourage a beginner from trying something risky. Nothing ventured means nothing   gained. Be optimistic. The can-do spirit is the fuel that   makes things go. Go to war against   animosity and complacency. Express your gratitude.


Read something uplifting. Deep-six the trash. You wouldnt eat garbage; why put it in your head? Dont abandon your old-fashioned principles; they never got out of style. When courage is needed ask yourself, If not me, who? If not now, when?


Take better care of yourself.  Remember, youre all youve got Pass up that second helping. You really dont need it. Vow to eat more sensibly. Youll feel better and look better too,


Dont put up with secondhand smoke.  Nobody  has  the right to pollute your air or give you cancer. If someone says, This is a free country. Remind him or  her  that the country may be free but no person is free  if he has a habit  he cant control.


Return those books you borrowed. Reschedule that missed dental appointment. Clean out your closet. Take those photos pot of the drawer and put them in an album. If you see litter on the sidewalk, pick it up instead of walking over it.


 Get real. Phoniness is transparent and tiresome. Take pleasure in the beauty and the wonders of nature. A flower is Gods miracle. Walk tall. Look people in the eye. Dont be bound by superstition and fear. Smile more. Youll look 10 years younger.


Dont be afraid to  say ,      I love you. Say it again. Say it still one more time. They are the sweetest words in the world.


Make this year the best ever.



Ann Landers
