Believe in Miracles

The past three Fridays I have given you the first twenty-seven "Words to Live By." These were written by Regina Brett, who was 90 years old at the time. They were published in The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, OH. Today I share with you the next nine on the list. I'll include the last nine next Friday. Hopefully spacing them out has given you time to absorb these words of wisdom.

If you'd like to see the first nine, click here. If you'd like to see the second nine, click here. If you'd like to see the third nine, click here. Here are the next nine:

28. Forgive everyone everything.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
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.
36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.

I like the phrase in #30, "Give time time," and #32, "Don't take yourself so seriously," and #33, "Believe in miracles."

Do you believe in miracles?

It's taken me a very long time to "get" #29, but I'm doing pretty well these days.
