WISDOM FROM A 90 YEAR OLD SENIOR!!!
My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so
 here is the column once more:
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. Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.
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 yourself. You can take it.
9. Save for things that matter.
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.
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 five 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 so 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 up and show 
up.
44. Yield.
45. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.”
