I found the following on a friend’s Facebook page, and have read it probably a dozen times. Chip and I both love this list – lots of good life lessons here. (Thank you, Shannon D.!) – Sheila
Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.
When in doubt, just take the next small step.
Life is too short – enjoy it.
Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.
Pay off your credit cards every month.
You don’t have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.
Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.
It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up your present.
Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
If a relationship has to be secret, you shouldn’t be in it.
Everything can change in the blink of an eye. Don’t worry – God never blinks.
Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
Get rid of anything that isn’t useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.
Whatever doesn’t kill you really will make you stronger.
It’s never too late to be happy. But, it’s all up to you and no one else.
Over prepare, then go with the flow.
Frame every disaster with these words ‘in 5 years, will this matter?’
What other people think of you is none of your business.
However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
Believe in miracles.
God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do.
All that truly matters in the end is that you are loved.
Get outside every day.
If we threw all our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.
Envy is a waste of time.
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.
