    1. 1.  Resiliency for Life Presents…
    2. 2.  The Six Rules
    3. 3.  For Constructive Living by Taschia Ann
    4. 4. The Six Rules 1. Never go to bed without a list of tasks or activities for the next day.
    5. 5. The Six Rules 2. Each day must include doing something for someone else.
    6. 6. The Six Rules 3. Each day must include taking care of our bodies.
    7. 7. The Six Rules 4. Each day must include working on a creative project.
    8. 8. The Six Rules 5. Each day must include a quiet time for thinking realistically about our situation.
    9. 9. The Six Rules 6. Do not let others do for you what you can do for yourselves.
    10. 10. Rule One  1. Never go to bed without a list of tasks or activities for the next day.  We need to make a carefully drawn- up list of what we are going to do the next day.
    11. 11. Rule Two  Each day must include doing something for someone else.  Our daily list should include a least one goal that is not self- direction.
    12. 12. Rule Three  Each day must include taking care of our bodies.  When we are feeling weak it is easier to say, "Oh, I will brush my teeth later" or “ I will wait and eat tonight. I don't want to bother fixing and food." How easy it is to just lie there in bed and not make the effort. That won't do.
    13. 13. Rule Four  Each day must include working on a creative project.  We need to keep our minds alive, and one way to create an environment in which this can occur is to participate in an activity that allows us to demonstrate our unique individuality. This can range from playing a card or board game to an art form like music, painting, or writing.
    14. 14. Rule Five  Each day must include a quiet time for thinking (and planning) realistically about our situation  Never can we afford to play "ostrich" and hide form the truth of our health issues. By addressing small areas of concern so we better understand each set of circumstances, we can make plans to cope
    15. 15. Rule Six  Do not let others do for you what you can do for yourselves.  If all we can do is eat or get dressed without help we need to make the effort. It is too easy to slip into helplessness and hopelessness.
    16. 16. About Taschia Ann Taschia wrote these powerful and effective Six Rules for Constructive Living during her last months while fighting cancer. Despite having written them many years ago they have a timeless wisdom about them. They will still be valid in decades from now. Originally published in 1987.
    17. 17. About Michael Ballard our host Over 20 years ago Michael had a seven year multi treatment battle with cancer. During the course of treatment one of his medical procedures failed. But he got to ride on the Express Gurney to OR where he had a late night emergency surgery. Michael thinks he might be the only person to convince the medical staff to sing Happy Birthday to a patient seconds before surgery, as it really was his Birthday! He is now completely recovered.
