Chapter Forty Five

When I was young I thought forty five was quite old. I mean, it seemed like only parents are that age. But then I got here. It doesn’t seem so old anymore.

Forty five is just getting started and I reflect on what I’ve learned thus far in my forty five years of life. No particular order. 
  1. People don’t necessarily change. We just grow.
  2. Our health becomes more important.
  3. Home is always the best place to be on a Friday night. 
  4. Prayer is powerful. 
  5. Not everyone is nice, but you can be nice to everyone. 
  6. What you consume does affect your body and mood.
  7. Reading is such a relaxing hobby. 
  8. Mediation is so healthy. 
  9. You don't always have to be in a rush. Slow down. 
  10. Traveling is necessary. 
  11. Speaking another language is beneficial. 
  12. Dreams can come true. 
  13. Water is essential for a healthy life. 
  14. It is necessary to take care of yourself. If you don't, no one else will. 
  15. Life is very short. 
  16. The work will always be there. You won't. Choose you. 
  17. Children are a true blessing. Cherish them. 
  18. Chocolate helps any bad day. 
  19. So much can change in one year. 
  20. Love is above everything else. Forgiveness is a gift. 
Live, love, hope and dream.
