Get Outside Everyday. Miracles Are Waiting Everywhere!


Many years ago a letter was published in The Cleveland Plain Dealer, written by one of the papers columnist, Regina Brett. She wrote down 45 lessons that life taught her. Listed below are a few of them.

1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.

6. You don’t have to win every argument — agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone…’s more healing than crying alone.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.

12. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye, but don’t worry — God never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.

19. It’s never too late to have a happy childhood, but the second one is up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

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?’

28. Forgive everyone for everything.

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

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

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.

36. Growing old beats the alternative — dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere..

41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

45. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.”

While my list might differ somewhat than the above author, it is close enough to merit consideration. In summation, overall, these thoughts are really about basic Christian principles that we all have been taught since childhood. I most like number thirty-nine, “Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere”.

The author of all miracles is Heavenly Father. May we greet each day with the thought that each day is a day of miracles. In so doing, every new day will become a day full of anticipation!
