Read At Least Once A Week !!!!!

Written by *Regina Brett*, 90 years old, of the Plain b Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio_

To celebrate growing older, I once wrote few lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written.

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

2. *When in doubt, just take the next small step.*

3. *Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.*

4. *You don't have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.*

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

6. *Make peace with your past so it won't mess up the present.*

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

8. *Take a deep breath every now and then. It calms the mind.*

9. *'Get rid of anything that isn't useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.*

10. *It's never too late to be happy. But it’s all up to you and no one else.*

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

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

13. *Forgive others and yourself.*

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

15. *Time heals almost everything. Give time a little time.*

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

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

18. *Believe in miracles.*

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

20. *Growing old Beats the alternative of dying young.*

21. *Your children get only one childhood.*

22. *All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.*

23. *Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.*

24. *Envy is waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you need.*

25. *The best is yet to come...*

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

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

*Friends are the family and family is best friends that you choose.*_

*Its worth reading again & again, as & when you can.*
