Something wonderful to meditate on today...

I am borrowing this list from a Myfitnesspal.com friend who is borrowing it from an unnamed Facebook friend so I can't site the source, but it made me smile, as it's the last thing I'll read before bed. Instead of scanning this list, take a moment to really meditate on them. I hope you'll find some of the peace and joy I did!

1. Believe in miracles.Yes, it is a choice.2. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance!
3. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
No one walks around with the inclination that they are perfect, but we all seem to think other people are.4. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
5. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile!
But everything in Moderation.
6. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
7. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
8. Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their Maker.
9. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.
10. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
11. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
12. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

16. Fair comes once a year!
17. It's better to be hated for who you are than loved for who you're not.
18. Absolutely everyone is weird inside.
The more you share with a stranger, the more alike you'll see we all are!
19. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
Dogs dry tears well.
20. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
Or smarter.21. The most important sex organ is the brain.

26. Power is nothing unless you can turn it into influence.
27. Be gentle with the earth.
28. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
29. It's OK to play with your food.
30. Life doesn't weigh you down -  it's the way you carry it.
31. A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.

36. Life is a series of hellos and goodbyes. Welcome the new adventures, and know what pieces of the past to learn from and let go of.

38. All that truly matter in the end is that you loved.  And in that, everybody wins.


  1. Count your blessings! Even when it seems like you are stuck in rain clouds, there is always a silver lining. That's probably the hardest thing for me to realize, but also the most important :) Thanks for sharing
