And I lost a reader!!!!

Sorry I must be boring someone with my posts. Good news I am getting the kitty!!!!!! My X was here in December when Blackie died. It was heartbreaking for us both. Today I was very excited to get an email from him telling me that he was getting the kitty for me. So ya, the orange one will be mine in the morning and I named her Cheeto!

I don't know how many of you have seen this already but when I read it I had to share. Its written by a woman named Regina Brett who is a columnist.

NOW.......I WANT EVERYONE TO DO SOMETHING FOR ME........even you lurkers. I want to know that you are out there and I want some damn comments. So take 2 minutes and PReTTY please tell me what number is your favorite!!!!!!!

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. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
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. Life is too short for long pity parties. Get busy living, or get busy dying.
17. You can get through anything if you stay put in today.
18. A writer writes. If you want to be a writer, write.
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.
22. Overprepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: "In five years, will this matter?"
27. Always choose life.
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. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.
35. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
36. Growing old beats the alternative - dying young.
37. Your children get only one childhood. Make it memorable.
38. Read the Psalms. They cover every human emotion.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
41. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
42. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
43. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
44. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
45. The best is yet to come.
46. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
47. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
48. If you don't ask, you don't get.
49. Yield.
50. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.

Side Note: Just DO IT already!

Side Note 2: Yes, I have the shoes!

I was hoping you'd get her! She's such a pretty color.

Kate said...

NO 3 is my fave.
I deal with too many angry people...
and I wish they could grasp the concept of letting it go cuz it just ain't worth it.

Congrats on the kitty.
I love my kitty a lot so I totally understand.

Brian in Mpls said...

I am going to go with 42 :)

Ken said...

To pick only one is hard but No. 11 is one I would not be here without, so I will go with that one.

Ken said...

Side note 1 & 2 Thanks for buying NIKE

AJ- I was pretty surprised myself. Don't be shocked if I have another pic up in the next day or so. I might get a maine coon too.

Kate- I agree on #3 and I love the your cat.

Brian-I love that you picked #42 speaks volumes.

Ken-That you made me remember your story, thank you for sharing it with us all. And I love my Nikes!

Linda said...

#3. But I always say Get busy living or get busy dying cause I'm quoting Shawshank Redemption. Great list. Hard to choose!

18. A writer writes. If you want to be a writer, write. I like it because it's a line in one of my favorite shows: "Throw Momma from the Train" but I've remembered it because I like to write, so I do. I guess that makes me a writer!

Ms. Salti said...

I'm sorry but I can't choose just one...
6 - Agree to disagree
13 - Don't compare your life to others'
21 - Go after what you love, don't take no for an answer
25 - No one is in charge of your happiness but you
40 - We'd pick our own problems

Thanks for posting that... and I'm glad you got the kitty!

I like #13, but #48 is a close 2nd.

Anonymous said...

I think 13 should do it.

the girl said...

For me, it's:

42. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

Oh, and thanks for adding me to your reader :)


Brittany said...

Crap, I can't pick one at all. You play unfair LOL!

Scott said...

Reading all of those at once is overwhelming, half way thru you forget some of the ones you already read. It could be just a guy thing. Maybe a better idea would be to list ten each day for five days, then on the next day list the winners from each of the previous days and choose the top dog. Just a thought.

I really love #8

Green-Eyed Momster said...

I'd have to choose #11 because I have and it was very, very hard to do.

Great post!

Donn said...

Awesome list :)
#50 Life is a gift that is why they call it "the Present"!

Dumbwit Tellher ♥ said...

Great post! #40 is my pick.

Anonymous said...

#8, 30, 34, 37, 18....OMG, you know I can never choose just one damn thing. Sheesh. Why must you do this to me? LOL

kristi said...
