45 Life Lessons: 1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.  2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.  3. Life is too short - enjoy it.  4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.  5. Pay off your credit cards every month.  6. You don't have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.  7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.  8. It's OK to get angry with life. Everyone does.  9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.  10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.  11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.  12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.  13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.  14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.  15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry, it will change again.  16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.  17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.  18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.  19. It's never too late to be happy. But it's all up to you and no one else.  20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.  21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.  22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.  23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.  24. The most important sex organ is the brain.  25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.  26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words, "In 100 years, will this matter?"  27. Always choose life.  28. Forgive but don't forget.  29. What other people think of you is none of your business.  30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.  31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.  32. Don't take yourself too seriously. No one else does.  33. Believe in miracles.  34. People love you because of who you are, not because of anything you did or didn't do.  35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.  36. Growing old beats the alternative - dying young.  37. Your children get only one childhood.  38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.  39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.  40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.  41. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you need.  42. The best is yet to come.  43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress, and show up.  44. Yield.  45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.  Written by Regina Brett
