So, I've turned 43!

Thursday, May 12, 2011

Yesterday while driving my two youngest daughters to school (an hour commute with traffic) - I had Kassidy write out some of the lessons I have learned in the past 43 years. These are quick - simple- statements. I didn’t spend a lot of time on this - its just what came to my mind as I was driving - the order has no importance.

My intention was this would help inspire my girls as they listened to some of my life lessons. And, I hope some of these might inspire you today as well. I can’t take credit for all of these sayings - many of them are from friends, pastors, books I have read, etc.

Here we go;

1.) Get over it's not about you.

2.) You get good friends by being a good friend.

3.) Gods word is true and the perfect road map to life.

4.) Forgive quickly and often.

5.) Little choices often have huge consequences.

6.) Consequences affect not only you but those who know and love you.

6.) Prayer is about a relationship with Christ. You build a relationship by talking and listening.

7.) Learn to love and serve others - especially those less fortunate.

8.) Be in awe of God often - your “up look” determines your “out look.”

9.) Be a giver.

10.) Go for it, think outside the box.

11.) Life is short eternity is forever so live each day like it is your last.

12.) Learn to love to read.

13.) Eat right, exercise, and take power naps daily.

14.) Not everyone will like or appreciate you and that's okay.

15.) Attitude is a choice.

16.) Honesty is crucial in all things.

What would you add to the list?

#14 is hard for me. I will apologize sometimes when I'm not wrong just to keep the peace!
