The Road to Hell Is Paved

45 Life Lessons from a 90yr old

No doubt in my mind the senior had good intentions with this advice:


  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 not to enjoy it.
  4. Your job won’t take care of you when you’re sick, friends and family will.45-1
  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 God – He can take it.
  9.  Save for things that matter.SONY DSC
  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. Don’t worry; God never blinks.
  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.45-3
  19.  It’s never too late to be happy, but it’s 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, than go with the flow.
  23.  Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.

  29.  What other people think of you is none of your business.
  30.  Time heals almost everything. Give Time time.

  32.  Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

  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 think 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.
