Life Wisdom

Just had to share this with you today; it's life wisdom from a 90-year-old woman named Regina Brett. I didn't include all of the items on her list, but here are some of the highlights:

  1. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
  2. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
  3. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.
  4. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
  5. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
  6. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
  7. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
  8. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
  9. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
  10. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
  11. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
  12. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
  13. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
  14. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
  15. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'
  16. Always choose life.
  17. What other people think of you is none of your business.
  18. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.
  19. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
  20. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. Have a blessed week everyone.
