90year old Regina's 45 lessons of life

Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio .

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written.

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short - enjoy it.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye, but don't worry, God never blinks.

16.. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

19.. It's never too late to be happy. But it's all up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

25. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'

26. Always choose life.

27. Forgive

28. What other people think of you is none of your business.

29. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

30. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

31. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

32. Believe in miracles.

33. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

34. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

35. Growing old beats the alternative of dying young.

36. Your children get only one childhood.

37. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

38. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

39. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

40. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you need

41. The best is yet to come...

42. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

43. Yield.

44. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

45. "Remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."

    From an excerpt if Jonathan Sacks - celebrating life:-

    Happiness is a close relative of faith - faith as a form of attention, mindfulness, not taking things for granted, of giving thanks, faith as the courage to make and keep commitments, of which relationships and trust are born.

    In the movie "life is beautiful" - a film about the holocast, it portrayed the power of the human spirit to defeat tragedy by celebrating life in the midst of suffering.

    What is your personal brand-know yourself

    What are 4 or 5 words that people would use to describe you?
    What are 4 or 5 words that you would like people to use to describe you?

    What is the gap?

    What do you need to do to become congruent?

    Your personal brand has the capacity to attract success in business or life.

    Align this with your character ( values) and personal preferences ( what excites you and makes you passionate) and become the leader you want to be.

    At its meeting the Reserve Bank Board announced it was leaving the cash rate unchanged at 3.0%.

    Whilst the official rate is unchanged, we're watching closely what the banks do with their rates, as some of Australia's biggest lenders have decided to make changes to their rates regardless of official interest rate moves by the RBA.
    Please get in touch if you would like to discuss recent rate movements and if you have time, let's conduct a quick review of your finance options.
