Things To Remember

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.

Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.

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

Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Forgive them for everything!

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

You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.

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

No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five years, will this matter?'

Help the needy, Be generous! Be a 'Giver' not a 'Taker'.

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

Time heals everything.

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

Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

Each night before you go to bed, pray to God and be thankful for what you've accomplish, today!

Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

    1. These are so simple, but we tend to get bogged down with the little thing.

  2. Wonderful, inspiring list, easier said than done. I love the meal analogy. I hadn't heard that one before.

    1. I need to do the food analogy. It's probably very true. :)

  3. Don't waste your time on energy vampires.
    I think that means don't go to work. I'd have more energy if I stayed at home. Not much money but more energy

  4. The "what other people think of you is none of your business" is so true but I don't mind hearing what they think because I find it amusing some times. There's a girl at work who likes to tell people what other people say about you. She does it to start drama. She stopped telling me anything because she hasn't been able to get a rise out of me for a couple years now....lol

  8. So true Sandee. I made a copy of these wonderful words to keep for myself. I may not agree to some of them but they sure make a lot of sense. There should have been one more, " Friendship is so important in life for your everyday living ". Have a great day my thoughtful friend. See ya.

  14. I have a friend who is an energy vampire. Sometimes it's all I can do not to clobber her on the head and knock some sense into her. But honestly, I don't even think she will get it... sad.

  18. Any time I'm feeling stressed or depressed (hey, that rhymes!), I think back to the flood of 2010, where water was in our house and we had to rebuild and buy all new furniture. Pain in the rear!!! In light of that, anything else that happens means nothing as long as my loved ones are healthy.
