Thoughts to live by

As I was reading through my blog list I saw a posting from Jan, in which she'd passed on these thoughts. I'm going to pretty them up, print them out, and put them up in my craft room!

You may have seen them before, but I still thought it was worth adding them here.

1: When in doubt - just take the next small step.
2: Life is too short to waste hating anyone.
3: Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
4: Make peace with your past so it won't screw-up the present.
5: Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
6: Children get only one childhood.
7: Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
8: Be eccentric now - Don't wait for old age to wear purple! (Yay!)
9: No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
10: Frame every so-called disaster with these words. 'In five years, will this matter?'
11: Forgive everyone everything.
12: The best is yet to come.


  1. Very nice, Jules. I may have to print and frame these, too!

  2. I have a quilt top with the title, "when I am purple..." that's as far as I got with the title and the top....because I am always a work in progress!

  3. Happy New year to you and lovely to see you over at my place too.

  4. I agree that these are great rules to live by. And I love the title of Vicky's quilt top!

  5. This is so perfect Jules! I love every single word!
    hugs to you!

  6. HI Jules
    Great post I am going to use that list in the newsletter for my doll group I love them.


If you have time please leave me a comment. I love to hear what you think.x
