The following is the reading from our service on Sunday Jan. 2, 2011
When in doubt, just take the next small step.
Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
Cry with someone.. It's more healing than crying alone.
When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
It's OK to let your children see you cry.
Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.
Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'
Always choose life.
What other people think of you is none of your business.
Time heals almost everything. Give time time..
However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
Your children get only one childhood.
If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."
All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
Offered as wisdom for the journey
