When words of wisdom fail me, I find them in unexpected places. These came from an email forwarded by a friend. They are great lessons to live by. I picked out my favorites, read them and enjoy:
Tips for an Exceptional, Superb & Powerful Life!
1.) Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is
the ultimate antidepressant.
2.) Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Buy a lock if you have to.
3.) Buy a Tivo (DVR), tape your late night shows and get more sleep.
4.) Live with the 3 E’s — Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy.
5.) Watch more movies, play more games and read more books than you did
6.) Always pray and make time to exercise.
7.) Spend more time with people over the age of 70 and under the age of nsix.
8.) Dream more while you are awake.

are manufactured in plants.

salmon, broccoli, almonds & walnuts.

12.) Clear your clutter from your house, your car, your desk and let new
and flowing energy into your life.
13.) Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues
of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead,
invest your energy in the positive present moment.
14.) Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are
simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra
class ……but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.

16.) Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
17.) Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
18.) You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
19.) Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their
Journey is all about.
20.) Ladies – Go on and burn those ‘special’ scented candles, use the 600
thread count sheets, the good china and wear our fancy lingerie now.
Stop waiting for a special occasion. Everyday is special.
21.) No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
22.) Frame every so-called disaster with these words: ‘In five years, will this matter?’
23.) What other people think of you is none of your business.
24.) Time heals almost everything.
25.) However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
26.) Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will.
Stay in touch with them.

28.) No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
29.) Call your family often.
30.) Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements:
I am thankful for __________.’ Today I accomplished _________.
31.) Enjoy the ride. Remember that this is not Disney World and you
certainly don’t want a fast pass. You only have one ride through life so
make the most of it and enjoy the ride.
