Life Lesson:


about THE BIG GUY UP THERE:
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
34. God loves you because of who God is,
not because of anything you did or didn't do.
38. Yield.

ME, MYSELF and I…
23. Be eccentric now. Don 't wait for old age to wear purple.
32. Don 't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
35. Don 't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

Don’t forget THE BFFs & FAMILY SQUAD…
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
Forgive everyone for everything.
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick.
Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

phiLOVEsophy…
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life,
don't take no for an answer.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.
36. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

It’s all about the MONEY?
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

MEAN GIRLS SYNDROME?
12. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
13. Don 't compare your life to others.
You have no idea what their journey is all about.
24. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's,
we'd grab ours back.

O, O, You’re in Trouble?
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
15. Growing old beats the alternative -dying young. Always choose life.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words
'In five years, will this matter?'
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
33. Believe in miracles.

a lil REMINDER
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, and wear the fancy lingerie.
Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
27. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
28. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

in the END,
1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
22. Over prepare, and then go with the flow.
37. The best is yet to come.
39. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift

Your posts make everything so freaking happy! I love it! The DFTBA is my favorite, I think I'll have to paste that to my binder everyday. That's just something we always forget. I also love what you said about philosophy-er, I mean philovesophy. And this is the best list ever.

Everything was lovely. I have to be better at commenting. Your blog is beautiful and amazing. I say amazing too much, have you realized?

Dearest Fe, thank you for this inspiring post. I'm glad my heart feels this way about your blog.
I miss you. Lately, I have been a staircase of emotions. One second happy, the next second sad. I like it though. I'm growing. My life is going well. Thank God.
How are you?
My Christmas is also going well. I bought/made the presents. I am yet to wrap them though. I should do that today.
Work has been consuming me. :(
How is Christmas going for you?

Happy Holidays, love.


LOVE!

I'm doing pretty great, Tywo dear. Thanks for asking :) You've made me smile. Christmas is kinda fascinating, we're planning to have a family holiday soon. So I'm all excited!
