The 25 Man Rules

Seven years ago, I joined Facebook. One of the first things shared with me were “The Man Rules” by an old friend from high school. I found it so funny, I have kept a copy of it ever since. I thought the guys may get a kick out of the man rules and we, as women, will let you have your say; however, that doesn’t mean you are right, LOL!! I hope you enjoy the 25 Man Rules:

We always hear “the rules” from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side.

Please note that they are all numbered 1. We did this ON PURPOSE!


The Man Rules


  1. Men are NOT mind readers.


  1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You’re a big girl. If it’s up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don’t hear us complaining about you leaving it down.


the man rules sports


  1. Sunday sports – It’s like the full moon or the changing or the tides. Let it be.


  1. Crying is blackmail.


  1. Ask for you what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!




  1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.


  1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That’s what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.


  1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days.


  1. If you think you’re fat, you probably are. Don’t ask us.

Creative Notions
Creative Notions

People appear to own the misperception that only a pick few are ready to unleash a gradual flow of creative genius. That’s not true in the least. The actual fact is creativeness is extremely similar a muscle that must be exercised in order to constantly provide considerable results. If you do not practice harnessing creativeness, this ability can significantly atrophy into inexistence. However, keep practicing and this talent can before long return to you quickly.

So however does one unleash your artistic thinking? Well, the primary factor is to become a human leech. No, we’re not talking about simply consuming the blood out of each living being obtainable, we’re suggesting that you just ought to take in the maximum amount of information and learning you’ll be able to notice better results. Browse everything out there — sensible and unhealthy, and keep your mind receptive the infinite prospects of the universe. The more you recognize, additionally you will need to understand, and therefore, the more your faculty of marvel are going to be exercised. Prepare to be surprised at very little facts that add somewhat of color into your life.

Resourceful Activity
Focus on a resourceful activity on a daily basis. Yes, it’s an endeavor. Even doodling could be a creative activity. Do not let something hinder you. Mindlessness could also be an inventive activity, except for people that are simply beginning out to unleash a bit of creativity in their lives, It’s useful and inspiring to possess concrete proof, that, “hey, what i am doing is seizing something great”. Therefore, why don’t you attempt it? Follow drawing for one or two minutes daily. Bring out your previous camera and begin snapping photos like mad. Keep a journal and create a point to write down in it religiously. Another cool plan is to put in writing describing one thing along with your five senses. Attempt avoid obscure adjectives like “marvelous,” amazing,” and “delicious.” Before you recognize it, you will have designed yourself a little portfolio, and you will be stunned at the expansion you have undertaken. When amassing all those works of art. Who knows, you may truly desire the stuff you do on a daily basis. Shortly those things can become a distinction of you and you will be passionate about these artistic exercises.

Think out of the box — or do not. Sometimes, constraints are literally a decent issue. Limitations discipline you to figure within your means. It allows you to be additionally capable. Artistic freedom is nice, but
limitations enforce discipline. Strive for one thing new each day and let your experiences broaden your perspective. Explore a brand new district in your neighborhood. Waste a day in a museum to that you have never been before. Chat up anyone on the bus. Open up to the folks around you. As you thrust yourself out of your safety element, more and more day after day, your sense of journey grows and then will your zest for life. Have faith in it.

Creativity Causes Feel Good Sunday
When was the last time you probably did one thing for the first time? If It has been quite a moment, I tell you, you have been missing out on a full ton of experiences that could’ve furthered your growth, Emotionally, mentally, physically, or spiritually. Why don’t you attempt bungee cord jumping today? Not only can you learn, you may even have lots of stories to share, enabling you to apply your storytelling skills and making you the life of the party.

Creativity is basically breaking through barriers. Yes, this includes the eccentric and also the downright strange. I’m not suggesting that you simply yourself ought to develop a creative personality. That may go haywire. An example of a resourceful personality would be President Washington, who usually rode into battle naked, or James Augustine Aloysius Joyce, who wrote “Dubliners” with beetle juice for an intense concern of ink, or Albert Einstein, who thought his cat was a spy sent by his rival (or in thinking creatively during this case, the term may in all probability be “arch nemesis.”) It is vital that your creativity does not get you detached from the important world completely. I hope this text has impressed you to begin thinking beyond your “limits.” If you follow these steps pretty before long you will be living a life jam-packed with fascinating adventures. Unleashing your creativity can cause a brand new zest for living life.

Embrace Insanity
Embrace insanity. No, not to the purpose of practically admitting yourself into the mental ward. As John Russell once stated, “Sanity calms, however, madness is additionally more fascinating.” Exactly! Each artistic thought was once deemed crazy by alternative “normal” people at one time or another. Luckily, that did not stop the creative geniuses from standing by them. The issue is, saneness or being normal encompasses people to assume… well, normally. among limits.
