Wise Words

Wise Words of Advice.....
My sweet husband sent this to me and I wanted to share. I highlighted a few that I especially liked. It is long but worth the time to read it......
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 to waste time hating anyone.
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends & parents will. Stay in touch.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it. Then lean on him anyway.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first pay check.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't mess 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; God never blinks.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is 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.

27. Always choose life.
28. Forgive everyone for everything.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, 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. Rejoice!
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.

Do you have any in particular that you just love?

I hit some garage sales last weekend and picked up some the goodies you see here in my photos....a chicken feeder missing the top repurposed into a flower vase....there's those daisies again!
I will be switching them out for sunflowers for the fall!
I also found this old flour sifter....only cost a $1. Some black eyed susans from my garden popped into a small mason jar that fits perfectly inside, another flower holder.
I guess I just have a thing for flowers...I will share the other goodies I found in another post. You all have a great Thursday, I'm off to make some of the goodies for my merchantile I was supposed to post about on Tuesday!
