Another year upon us and it's amazing to me how fast this last year passed.
So much has happened in my life in so many ways that it's even hard to focus on either one really good event or really bad event. The older I get the more I realize how important life is. Life is a lesson and I've learned a lot this past year, maybe more than I wanted but exactly what I NEEDED.
Some things I think are important:
Make sure you show those you love how much you love them, you might not get a second chance.
Don't sweat the small stuff, really.
Take care of yourself, both physically and emotionally so you can change the world with your smile.
Take care of those who need you, you know who they are.
Love and protect your pets, care for the strays as much as you can and NEVER raise a harmful hand towards any helpless animal.
Let go of the past. Any pain you harbor will eventually be filled with love and understanding, make room for it.
Set realistic goals and move towards them.
You can make a difference.
Laugh often, it keeps you young.
Make friends, they make you whole.
Practice your hobbies and learn new ones.
Support and appreciate your family and friends, they wont always be around.
Share secrets with your best friend. Share everything else with loved ones.
Read a lot.
Play lots of games and don't worry about winning, it's the play that's the point.
Thank those who've helped you and forget about those who turned their backs on you. They aren't worth your thoughts.
Clean out your closet, so much fun to rid yourself of old junk.
Oh, and ladies, throw out your old makeup, I know I need to do this, lol.
I'm sure there is SOooo much more I could say, but life is different for everyone.
So, in a nutshell, life is what you make it - make it yours!!!!
