20 Things To Remember

Today I am cleaning up my "to file" pile in my office. I came across a sheet of paper with 20 things to remember. I'm pretty sure my mom sent it to me. They are good thoughts to keep in mind so I thought I'd share them:
  1. Faith is the ability to not panic.
  2. If you worry, you didn't pray. If you prayed, don't worry.
  3. As a child of God, prayer is like calling home every day.
  4. Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.
  5. When we get tangled up in our problems, be still. God wants us to be still so He can untangle the knot.
  6. Do the math. Count your blessings.
  7. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts.
  8. Dear God: I have a problem. It's me.
  9. Silence is often misinterpreted but never misquoted.
  10. Laugh every day - it's like inner jogging.
  11. The most important things in your home are the people.
  12. Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional
  13. There is no key to happiness. The door is always open.
  14. A grudge is a heavy thing to carry.
  15. He who dies with the most toys is still dead.
  16. We do not remember days, but moments. Life moves too fast, so enjoy your precious moments.
  17. Nothing is real to you until you experience it; otherwise it's just hearsay.
  18. It's alright to sit on your pity pot every now and again. Just be sure to flush when you are done.
  19. Surviving and living your life successfully require courage. The goals and dreams you're seeking require courage and risk-taking. Learn from the turtle, it only makes progress when it sticks out its neck.
  20. Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are, while your reputation is...merely what others think you are.
I hope these thoughts bring a smile to your face and a spring to your step as they did for me.
