words to live by...

Sent to me by Al Panebianco. It is so nice I am going to pin it here, so it won't disappear. When you need a little uplift from time to time, come here, read this and rejuvenate!



1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ultimate anti-depressant.


2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.. Buy a lock if you have to.


3.. Buy a DVR and tape your late night shows and get more sleep.


4. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, 'My purpose is to ___ today.'


5. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy.


6. Play more games and read more books than you did in 2007.


7. Make time to practice meditation, yoga, tai chi, and prayer. They provide us with daily fuel for our busy lives.


8. Spend time with people over the age of 70 and under the age of 6.


9. Dream more while you are awake.


10. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.


11. Drink green tea and plenty of warm water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan salmon, broccoli, almonds & walnuts.


12. Try to make at least three people smile each day.


13. Clear clutter from your house, your car, your desk and let new and flowing energy into your life.


14. 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.


15. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.


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


17. Smile and laugh more. It will keep the energy vampires away.


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


19. Life is too short to spend time hating anyone.


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


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


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


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


24. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.


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


26. Forgive everyone for everything.


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


28. GOD heals almost everything.


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


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


31. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.


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


33. The best is yet to come.


34. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.


35. Do the right thing!


36. Call your family often.


37. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: I am thankful for _____. Today I accomplished _____.


38. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.


39. Enjoy the ride. Remember this is not Disney World and you certainly don't want a fast pass. You only have one ride through life so make the most of it and enjoy the ride.


40. May your troubles be less, May your blessings be more, May nothing but happiness come through your door!

There's "No Bridge Too Far"

Mare; What a coincidence. I was coming on to your site to post a few thoughts from " UNKNOWN ". Glad I paused to read your post first. What a follow-up.






You know, time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the Passing years.


It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my New life with my mate. And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I Wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived them all....


And I have glimpses of how it was back then, and of all my hopes and dreams. But, here it is--the winter of my life, and it catches me by surprise. How Did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my babies go? And where did my youth go?


I remember well.. Seeing older people through the years and thinking that Those older people were years away from me and that winter was so far off That I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like. But, Here it is...my friends are retired and really getting gray...they move Slower and I see an older person now. Lots are in better shape than Me...but, I see the great change...Not like the ones that I remember who Were young and vibrant... But, like me, their age is beginning to show and We are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we'd be.


Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the Day! And taking a nap is not a treat anymore...it's mandatory! Cause if I Don't on my own free will...I just fall asleep where I sit!


And so, now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the Aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things That I wish I had done but never did!


But, at least I know, that though the winter has come, and I'm not sure how Long it will last...this I know--that when it's over...its over. Yes , I Have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done...things I should have Done, but indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have done. It's all in A lifetime....


So, if you're not in your winter yet...let me remind you, that it will be Here faster than you think. Whatever you would like to accomplish in your Life please do it quickly! Don't put things off too long!


Life goes by quickly. So, do what you can today, as you can never be sure Whether this is your winter or not!


You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life...so, Live for good today and say all the things that you want your loved ones to Remember...and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things That you have done for them in all the years past!


'Life is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who Come after. Make it a fantastic one.'






Sorry for all the ^'s Mare. Ive tried to delete them but they kept popping back in. But it was a perfect follow-up, Hey What




Sorta the story of my life


MARE'S NOTE: Chuck I got rid of all the "^^^^^^^" using the program below. Works great every time! Not a problem, friend!
