Life’s Wisdom — This will make it better…

Wasn’t gonna post today, but my friend & business partner, Julie Krueger, sent this to me and it’s got real power!

Read it and get a blessing…  and be sure to post a comment when you’re done!


Written By Regina Brett, 90 years old, of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio

“To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me.
It is the most-requested column I’ve ever written.”

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

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.

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 journey
is all 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. 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.

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 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.

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. 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 — dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

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

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.

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.”

Its estimated 93% won’t forward this. If you are one of the 7% who will, forward this with the title ‘7%’.
(Just copy this link into an email or Facebook post — it’s that simple!)

I’m in the 7%.

Remember that I will always share my spoon with you!

Friends are the family that we choose for ourselves.

If you can learn from hard knocks,
you can also learn from soft touches.

Regina, Julie, thanks for the wisdom and the blessing!  We’re getting the word out!

  1. Thanks everyone for the words of encouragement. I only passed this on to T. Gray and can’t take credit for it. But, I will say that I am Awed with the kind posts from everyone. My favorite is: Believe in miracles. They will happen for all of us. Some miracles just require a little more work than others. Your friend, Julie

    “Whatever does’nt kill you really, will make you stronger” Very true. It is us who think & brood over life’s little drama. When you look back the journey give yourself a pat.

    Thanks Julie for sharing this with T Gray and T thanks for posting. I like this one. “35. Don’t audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.”

    This is very timely and wisdom we all deserve!

  5. YES!!! Thank you Julie. I use #29 frequently “what other people think of you is none of your business”. That relates to our business also. When we make a call, it’s none of our business what those people think of us. Our business it to help and bless those people and that’s what we are doing when we promote Slim. There are at least 9 people in my group who have been physically improved by drinking Slim. That makes it all worth while!
