My New Philosphy

These are words of wisdom from a sweet 92 year old lady:
Life isn't fair, but it's still good. When ever you're in doubt, just take the next small step.
Life is too short to wast time hating anyone.
When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
Make peace with your past so it won't mess up your present.
It's OK to let your children (or loved ones) see you cry.
Don't compare your life to others because you have no idea what their journey is all about.
Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
Be eccentric now.
Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
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 for everything.
What other people think of you is none of your business.
However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
Don't take yourself so seriously, no one else does.
Believe in miracles. They are waiting everywhere.
Show up and make the most of it now.
Growing olds beats the alternative.
All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
Get outside everyday.
If we all threw 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, get dressed, and show up.
Remember, that friends are the family that we choose for our selves.
