REGINA BRETT'S 45 LIFE LESSONS AND


5 TO GROW ON


~~~



  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. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
  5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
  6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
  7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
  8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
  9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
  10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
  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 story is about.
  14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
  15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
  16. Life is too short for long pity parties. Get busy living, or get busy dying.
  17. A writer writes. If you want to be a writer, write.
  18. You can get through anything if you stay put in today.
  19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.
  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.
  22. Over-prepare, then go with the flow.
  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 except you.
  26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words. "In five years, will this matter."
  27. Always choose life.
  28. Forgive everyone everything.
  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.

    32. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in Touch.

    33. Believe in miracles.

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

    35. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

    36. Growing old beats the alternative - dying young.

    37. Your children get only one childhood. Make it memorable.

    38. Read the Psalms. They cover every human emotion.

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

    42. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

    43. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

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

    45. The best is yet to come.

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

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

    48. If you don't ask, you don't get.

    49. Yield.

    50. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.


You!

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and
    beat you with experience.

    The last thing I want to do is hurt you.... but it's still on the list.

    If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

    We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.

    Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; Wisdom is not putting it
    in a fruit salad.

    Evening news is where they begin with 'Good evening', and then
    proceed to tell you why it isn't.

    How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes
    a whole box to start a campfire?

    I thought I wanted a career, turns out I just wanted pay checks.

    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

    I saw a woman wearing a sweat shirt with "Guess" on it...so I said
    "Implants?"

    Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the
    street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

    Why do Americans choose from just two people to run for president
    and 50 for Miss America ?

    Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a
    successful man is usually another woman.

    A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

    You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute
    to skydive twice.

    The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!

    Always borrow money from a pessimist. He won't expect it back.

    A diplomat is someone who can tell you to go to hell in such a way
    that you will look forward to the trip.

    Hospitality: making your guests feel like they're at home, even
    if you wish they were.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with.

    Some cause happiness wherever they go. Others whenever they go.

    I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure.

    I always take life with a grain of salt.... a slice of lemon....
    and a shot of tequila.

    When tempted to fight fire with fire, remember that the Fire
    Department usually uses water.

    Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

    Some people hear voices. Some see invisible people. Others have no
    imagination whatsoever.

    A bus is a vehicle that runs twice as fast when you are after it
    as when you are in it.

    If you are supposed to learn from your mistakes, why do some
    people have more than one child?

    Of course it was. The winky face always helps, but I usually assume people are joking. I am a bit of a smart ass myself sometimes-lol. I also find that pretending someone is joking is a good way to deflect the crank pots who aren't. Not that I have ever thought of you as a crank pot. ;-)
