"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me.
It is the most-requested column I've ever written."
*Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
*When in doubt, just take the next small step.
*Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
*Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.
*You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
*Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
*Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
*When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
*Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
*Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
*If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
*Everything can change in the blink of an eye.. But don't worry; God never blinks.
*Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
*Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger (remember this, naddu)
*It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.
*When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
*Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'
*Forgive everyone everything.
*What other people think of you is none of your business.
*Time heals almost everything. Give time time.
*Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
*All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
*If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's,we'd grab ours back.
*Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
*Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."
