Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.
Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick; your friends and parents will: stay in touch.
You don’t have to win every argument; agree to disagree.
Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.
Don’t compare your life to others; you have no idea what their journey is all about.
Over prepare, and then go with the flow.
Be eccentric now; don’t wait for old age to wear purple.
Frame every so-called disaster with these words: “In five years, will this even matter?”
What people think of you is none of your business.
Your children only get one childhood.
If we threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.
Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.
-Regina Brett, 90 years old
