9 Life Lessons Learned from Vampires

by Aimée J. Jannsohn

This Halloween, you’re sure to see a lot of vampires.  In the spirit of the holiday, we’re offering a few life lessons from one of Halloween’s favorite characters.


1
Make SPF your new BFF.

Vampires hide from the sun, but you don't have to. Enjoy the blessings of a sunny day while slathered in protection.


2
Too much stake is bad for the heart.

Likewise, too much steak―or too much anything—isn't good for you. You were created in God's image; take good care of yourself.


3
Blood is thicker than water.

Put family first - your own flesh and blood as well as those with whom you've formed an unbreakable bond. These are the people who  will be with you through thick and thin.


4
When life gives you garlic, make garlic bread.

The negative energy you repel will transform into a step toward your goals. Don't let anything keep you from pursuing your dreams. Stay strong, committed and resolute.


5
Behold the daytime power nap.

A short, sweet afternoon snooze can be life-changing. It will increase your productivity, sharpen your senses, and lift your spirit. No wonder vampires sleep during the day.


6
Go out after dark.

Every so often, take time to appreciate the moon and stars in the night sky. Nature is your own personal art gallery—no waiting in line and no ticket to get in.


7
When someone drives you batty, kill them with kindness.

The next time someone gets on your nerves, instead of shooting daggers, just give them a big ol' smile. It's guaranteed to catch them off guard.


8
Wear the cape, don't let the cape wear you.

Don't hide who you are―you are a child of God.  Let it shine through.


9
Stick your neck out for those who stick their neck out for you.

This should be the Golden Rule for vampires, but that's not how they roll. It's a good code of conduct for humans, though – one that shouldn't come back to "bite" them in the you-know-what.
