When In Doubt, Just Take The Next Small Step.
A 90 year old woman would say to you, "When in doubt, just take the next small step." Life is full of difficulties and big decisions. It isn't always easy to know what the best choice is or which path to follow. A 90 year old would remind you that sometimes doubt is a part of life. If you're not sure how to proceed, just take the next small step and then go from there.
Life Isn’t Fair, But It’s Still Good.
A 90 year old woman would remind you, "Life isn't fair, but it's still good." In times of struggle, it can be easy to feel disheartened by the unfairness of life. What a 90 year old would remind you is that life isn't fair, that's a fact, but it's still full of beauty and goodness. Don't focus on the unfairness, focus on the things that make life worth living.
Cry With Someone. It’s More Healing Than Crying Alone.
A 90 year old woman would tell you, "Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone." Sadness and despair can be such an isolating experience, especially when you're crying alone. Crying with someone can be both a healing and a bonding experience that draws you and your friend/loved one even closer together.
When It Comes To Chocolate, Resistance Is Futile.
A 90 year old woman would tell you, "When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile." It's the truest thing that's ever been said. Resisting chocolate or desert is truly futile. And why not treat yourself to some chocolate every now and then? Life is short, eat dessert first!
Be Eccentric Now. Don’t Wait For Old Age To Wear Purple.
A 90 year old woman would tell you, "Be eccentric now, don't wait for old age to ear purple." It's the truest thing that's ever been said. Life is too short to worry about being cool or impressing others. If you want to wear purple and a bevy of colors, do it! Have fun with what you wear. Be yourself. And never let the judgements of others influence how you lead your life.
No One Is In Charge Of Your Happiness But You.
A 90 year old woman would tell you, "No one is in charge of your happiness but you." Truer words have never been spoken. While we would all like to believe that happiness is totally dependent on outside circumstances, it typically begins with ourselves and a decision to be happy and stay positive. If you want to be happy, choose happiness!
Time Heals Almost Everything. Give Time Time.
A 90 year old woman would tell you, "Time heals almost everything. Give time, time." Time really does heal almost all wounds, but you have to give yourself the space and patience to let time do its thing. Real deal healing doesn't happen overnight. In fact, the stuff that matters, will continue to matter for years. But in time, all of your wounds will heal.
