I have posted about my love for lists before. I am borrowing some more lists from this book. These aren't your typical to do lists though.
- Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
- Never trouble another for what you can do yourself.
- Never spend your money before you have it.
- Never buy what you do not want because it is cheap.
- Pride costs us more than hunger, thirst, and cold.
- We never repent of having eaten too little.
- Nothing is troublesome that we do willingly.
- How much pain the evils, which have never happened, have cost us.
- Take things always by their smooth handle.
- When angry, count to ten before you speak: if very angry, a hundred.
Take time to think;
it is the source of your power.
Take time to play;
it is the secret of your youth.
Take time to read;
it is the foundation of your knowledge.
Take time to dream;
it will take you to the stars.
Take time to laugh;
it truly is your best medicine.
Take time to pray;
it is your touch with almighty God.
Take time to reach out to others;
it will give your life significance.
-Gregory L. Jante. PhD. From Becoming Strong Again
Wise Things Your Grandmother Told You
You are special.
Treat others the way you want to be treated.
Your life can be what you want it to be.
Take the days one day at a time.
Always play fair.
Count your blessings, not your troubles.
Don't put limits on yourself.
It's never too late.
Put things back where you found them.
Decisions are too important to leave to chance.
Reach for the stars.
Clean up after yourself.
Nothing wastes more energy than worrying.
The longer you carry a problem, the heavier it gets.
Say I'm sorry when you've hurt someone.
A little love goes a long way.
Friendship is always a good investment.
Don't take things too seriously.
-Patty MacGregor From Family Times: Growing Together in Fun and Faith
These lists spoke to me and I thought I would share them. Thank you for coming today. I hope these words inspire you like they have me. Have a sweet day!
