Some good stuff

My colleague sent me this list this morning. What do you think ? What is the one you most agree with ? Which one don’t you agree with ?

1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick.  Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.

5.. Pay off your credit cards every month. Hm. I don’t.

6. You don’t have to win every argument.  Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone.  It’s more healing than crying alone. Maybe I should but I can’t even cry by myself.

8. It’s OK to get angry with God.  He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck. My first paycheck was when I was 15 and retirement was not even a word I knew ! At the moment, I know that the money I’m putting aside for retirement is going to go on a house. One day.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile. Totally.

11. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.

12. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don’t compare your life to others.  You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it. I wish more people understood that.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye.  But  don’t worry; God never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath.  It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.

18. Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger. You have to work extra hard for that to happen. What doesn’t kill you makes you more vulnerable.

19. It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.  But the second one is up to you and no one else. That’s what zumba is for.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie.  Don’t save it for a special occasion.  Today is special. YES!

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow. That’s why I prepare my trips like a maniac, fretting about everything. This way, once the trip arrives, I can just let go.

23. Be eccentric now.  Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words ‘In five years, will this matter?’

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone everything. Never. Some things are understandable but not forgivable.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything.  Give time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. This too shall pass.

32. Don’t take yourself so seriously.  No one else does. 🙂

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do.

35. Don’t audit life.  Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative of dying young. Turning 37 this year ! Wouhouuuuuuuu!!

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved. Nope. What matters is that you were happy and made the most of your life. There might be love somewhere in there but it might not happen.

39. Get outside every day.  Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time.  You already have all you need.

42. The best is yet to  come… Depends. If you think of a future in diapers, it is NOT the best. If you think in terms of how much wiser you will be, then yes.

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show  up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s  still a gift.
