Some Thanksgiving Thoughts

BLOG_Thanksgiving2_pumpkinLife isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

When in doubt, just take the next small step.

Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

Pay off your credit cards every month.

You don’t have to win every argument.

Cry with someone.

It’s OK to get angry with God.

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

Don’t compare your life to others.

If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.

Life is too short for long pity parties.

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

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

No one is in charge of your happiness except 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.

Believe in miracles.

Growing old beats the alternative

Get outside every day.

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

Read some good books.

Envy is a waste of time.

The best is yet to come.

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

Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

If you don’t ask, you don’t get.

Yield.

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

Be thankful.
