A word of advice


Good advice email from my niece Judy Ratledge.  She always has a positive attitude and wonderful outlook on life.

#13 is the one that fits me – I hold the world’s record for lost keys and locked out of vehicles and homes.

“Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn’t happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice.

1. Pray

2. Go to bed on time.

3. Get up on time so you can start the day without rushing.

4. Say No to projects that won’t fit into your time schedule, or that

will compromise your mental health.

5. Delegate tasks to capable others.

6. Simplify and uncluttered your life.

7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.)

8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.

9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don’t lump the hard things all together.

10. Take one day at a time.

11. Separate worries from concerns. If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety. If you can’t do anything about a situation, forget it.

12. Live within your budget; don’t use credit cards for ordinary purchases.

13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.

14. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble..

15. Do something for the Kid in You everyday.

16. Carry a spiritually enlightening book with you to read while

waiting in line.

17. Get enough rest.

18. Eat right.

19. Get organized so everything has its place.

20.. Listen to a tape while driving that can help improve your quality of life..

21. Write down thoughts and inspirations.

22. Every day, find time to be alone.

23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small

problems in the bud. Don’t wait until it’s time to go to bed to try

and pray.

24. Make friends with Godly people..

25.. Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand.

26. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good ‘Thank you Jesus .’

27. Laugh.

28. Laugh some more!

29. Take your work seriously, but not yourself at all.

30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).

31.. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).

32. Sit on your ego.

33. Talk less; listen more.

34.. Slow down.

35. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.

36. Every night before bed, think of one thing you’re grateful for

that you’ve never been grateful for before. GOD HAS A WAY OF TURNING THINGS AROUND FOR YOU.”

‘If God is for us, who can be against us?’

(Romans 8:31)

    Thank you Aunt Shirley for sharing this! It was something that was passed along to me and I just love it — and learning #14 must run in the family! I struggle with that one!

    I love you! And I love your blog!
