Life can be magical when you have a clear set of personal rules to live by.  Here are my top 10 picks for living a happy, abundant life. (I hope they inspire you to create your own set of rules for living life to its fullest.) 
Life Rule #1: Look for the good side of everything
Whether it’s your partner, your brother, your pet, your home or work, try placing the majority of your attention on the things you really love and appreciate, rather than looking for the things you find tiresome or irritating.
Life Rule #2: Do what you love and love what you do. 
Try, as much as possible,  to live  a life that is  not tethered too tightly  to the actions and opinions of others. Do what you love and love what you do. 
Life Rule#3: Appreciate Where You Are Right Now 
As you work your way toward your ultimate goals and dreams, make an intentional effort to recognize that where you stand in the present moment is as much a gift as where you are going. Every day, look for at least one thing about your life RIGHT NOW that satisfies you. 
Life Rule #4: Have Some Fun 
Laugh, dance, do something  silly. Watch a funny movie, go for a swim, have lobster for dinner. Whatever you consider fun, pick something, and Just Do It. 
Life Rule #5: Say What You Need to Say
Don’t hold back…if you want to say, “I love you,” say it. If you need to say, “You hurt me,” say that too. 
Life Rule #6: Surround Yourself With People You Love
Make a list of the people who  make you feel safe, inspired, happy, and motivated. Keep them close and let them know, on a regular basis, how much they mean to you. 
Life Rule #7: Forget About The Money (If  just  for a little while) 
Sure, money makes the world go ‘round, BUT if everything you do is monetarily based, you’re  destined to miss a lot of life on the way to your “riches.” Make a habit  of doing  at least  one thing every day that doesn’t cost  you a penny or make you a dime. 
Life Rule #8: Focus on what is not temporary
 Contrary to popular belief, life is  not about struggle, conflict and endurance. Often, simply deciding that you will look the other way, turn the other cheek, or smile and say “no problem,” can spell the difference between misery and happiness. It’s always your choice. 
Life Rule #9: Think about the needs of others 
Neither everything is about us, you have to decide be consumed by the needs of others too.
 Life Rule #10: Put God above all else
 God is our base. Your word, your love and your mighty hand can do everything. Our faith moves mountains and in his way and only in his way we will find happiness.

A Photographic Tour of Sherlock’s London

For a deeper view into London’s most popular landmarks and buildings, check out the #londonsights hashtag on Instagram. To follow “Sherlock” at the 2014 Emmys, browse the #Emmys hashtag.

To fans of the novels and the BBC series, the locations featured in the Sherlock Holmes stories are almost as iconic as the characters themselves.

The most famous of all is 221B Baker Street, the home of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. Although London’s official Holmes museum now bears that number, the address was completely fictional when Sir Arthur Conan Doyle published the first “Sherlock” novel in 1887—building numbers on Baker Street did not yet extend that high. The flat shown on the British television show is actually located on the much-quieter North Gower Street, near Euston station.

Next door to Sherlock’s imaginary home is Speedy’s Cafe, a frequent filming spot for actors Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Martin Freeman (Watson). Speedy’s is a real restaurant and a destination site for super-fans—they even have a Sherlock-themed wrap on the menu. Another notable filming location for the television series is St. Bart’s Hospital in Smithfield, the oldest hospital in Europe and backdrop for Sherlock’s final showdown with arch-nemesis Moriarty.

Erykah Badu Discovers Her African Ancestry

"I never really was so concerned about where I was from. It really didn’t register as something I needed to do because I’m satisfied with knowing that I’m part of the all. I didn’t quite understand why that mattered until I went to the home of the people…the same people where I come from."

:-)

As soon as I secure this new job, because I will secure it, I’m getting a DNA ancestry test done. I need this.

beautiful.
