Lessons in Life – submitted by Wilma

Sometimes we are so busy focusing on the chaos generated by our teenagers that we forget to take care of ourselves. As Lloyd Woodward wrote a year ago in his posting “We Can Do It,”

If you don't take care of yourself you can't take care of others. Set a good example for your addict by having your own life, where you pursue happiness by having good relationships, where you spend time with people you care about, and have strong interests and hobbies. Work out. Eat well. Get lots of sleep. Be strong. That way, when the real crisis comes you will be ready.

Here are some excerpts from Regina Brett’s “45 life lessons and 5 to grow on”, published in the Cleveland Plain Dealer in 2007. These life lessons are good reminders about taking care of ourselves and keeping a positive attitude about life.

Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

When in doubt, just take the next small step.

You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

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

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

It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.

When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

Always choose life.

Forgive everyone everything.

Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

Believe in miracles.

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

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

The best is yet to come....

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