CELEBRATE GROWING OLDER

I wrote the 45 lessons life taught me…by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio

 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 future.
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 its 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.
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.
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
       u 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.”
