don't wait for old age to wear purple

I received these "Life Lessons" in an email forward today. A little google research reveals that Regina is 53, not 90, but that doesn't mean her musings are any less valid! You can read all 45 life lessons here, but below I've highlighted my faves:

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

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. You already have all you need.

45. The best is yet to come...
