Advice for life

* Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

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

* It's OK to let your children see you cry.

* Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey
is all about.

* Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

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

* Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't
save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

* Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

* The most important sex organ is the brain.

* No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

* Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will
this matter?'

* Forgive everyone everything.

* What other people think of you is none of your business.

* Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

* However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

* Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

* Believe in miracles.

* If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's,we'd grab
ours back.

* No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

* Yield.

Please know that Regina Brett, author of 50 Life Lessons, is not 90 years old (don't feel bad - that misinformation is all over the internet), but she is indeed wise. She is actually 53 years old; she is the senior metro columnist at The Plain Dealer in Cleveland (Ohio's largest weekly newspaper); she was a finalist in both 2008 and 2009 for the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary; and she has a book based on her 50 Life Lessons coming out in April of 2010. You can check out her website by going to http://www.reginabrett.com where you will see that all I've written here is true !! Regina also recently wrote a column for The Plain Dealer about "internet aging, which you can read here: http://tinyurl.com/ktdh3a And finally, you can also read all of her past columns, including the columns nominated for the Pulitzer Prize, at http://www.cleveland.com/brett

Regardless, it was a good article. I like the one about giving time time. I don't do that, and I need to learn. I am THE MOST impatient person I know. I love life SO much, and I want to just live it all right this minute. I need to stop and breathe. I'm trying. :) I loved everything on this article.
