Deja Vu

If you read this and think you have read it here before it is because you have. This is one of my favorite pieces of wisdom to impart to my readers. If you receive an email with this post and it describes Regina as a ninety or ninety-three year old, I wish you look as good as Regina does at this age.

This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!!

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

> 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 – enjoy it.

> 4. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.

> 5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

> 6. You don’t have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.

> 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. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.

> 18. Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.

> 19.. It’s never too late to be happy. But it’s all 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

> 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 of 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. Accept what you already have, not what 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.”

  1. Wisdom of the ages. Beautifully articulated. Even better is that it is not credited to some big name who you should blindly follow just because he became successful in some way.

    • We must constantly remind of ourselves of what is really important in our lives.

The Dangers of Allah

Confused about Islam, Muslims, Taqiyya, Kitman, The Islamic State, and Sharia? I've spent 14 years studying these confused beings.  They are not at all what they want us to believe, especially those who are ruled by al Qaeda , ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood as well as those who commit overt and covert Jihad while practicing Sharia tortures upon women

“ The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility. ” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
