THIS..MY FRIENDS....IS THE REAL DEAL ON LIFE..........



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.
ENOUGH FOR TODAY.....TO BE CONTINUED TOMORROW.

Hugs from here,

Jo
