15 Rules for Loving 54
Stay Active and I don’t mean work out every day. Stay active in your mind, challenge yourself all the time. Be involved in the here and now.
Stay Curious, question every single thing, every single time. Keep looking for answers and don’t stop until you find them.
Live Clean – one of the reasons why you always tell me that I don’t look my age is because I didn’t start enjoying a glass of wine or anything alcoholic until I turned fifty. I also smoked for a couple of years until the lines under my lips began to form. No way was I going to do that to my face!
Be Fearless, always do what you want, say what you want, dress the way you want. NEVER REGRET a single thing you’ve done because they are all part of who you’ve become.
Count your accomplishments and be proud of them.
Live in Love, not just that of your partner, but in the love of your friends, your children, your stuff. Walk to work with a full heart, love what you do, love who you are.
Choose your battles, don’t sweat the small stuff. Stop complaining. Stop posting negative things about your life. It brings people down. Most importantly, get rid of the people in your life who don’t bring you the tiniest sliver of joy.
Live for Others. Give, help, stay involved – they say the best thing you can do for someone is something they can’t ever repay you for. Stop talking and start doing. Words are cheap (99 cents on Kindle, lol)
Wear High Heels all the time. They keep you on your toes (literally and figuratively).
Never leave your house without your eyebrows. And always feel pretty, even when you look your worst.
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!
Laugh at yourself. All the time. When your children tease you about your cooking and baking skills, when they remind you about how many times you’ve forgotten something, laugh with them.
Know your limits but be relentless. Keep trying, keep pushing but also know how far you want to take things.
Respect yourself and others. Prioritize yourself. Do something for yourself every day and NEVER lose yourself to another. That’s stupid. Love doesn’t define you. It should always enhance you, make you fly.
Live with a grateful heart. Offer each day of your life to God. The good times and the bad times. Faith helps you get through when there are no answers to life’s tragedies.
I love this, Christine. Thank you for helping me rearrange my priorities.
@Amyvoxlibris – I don’t think you needed this. I think you’ve pretty much got it together!
