Like Gibbs’ Rules, Only Better

In honor of being alive for a half a century (I turned 50 a couple months ago), I wrote down a smattering of things I’ve learned.  So without further adieu, and in no particular order of importance, I give you the following

21 Things To Never Forget:

1. Own the Day.

2. Just show up. Just keep showing up.

6. Do what makes your heart happy.

9. Never stop being curious-never stop learning.

10. There’s always a reason to celebrate. Celebrate everything.

11. Eat some chocolate every day.

12. Never be ashamed to be 7 years old.

13. No matter how bad the day, you can find Jesus in it–a string of Happy Thoughts .

14. When you’re stressed over some dumb little thing remember: In a hundred years we’ll all be dead and it won’t matter anyway.

15. The days are long, but the years are short.

16. Some days are just like that-some days you’re the dog, some days you’re the hydrant.

17. Sometimes you’re wrong…

18. …Say you’re sorry.

19. Be who you are.  Be who God made you.

21. It’s a Crazy Beautiful Broken Life.  Own it.

And what do I think about being 50?  This says it perfectly:
