"Wisdom Highlights"

According to something I read today gray hair is highlights earned along the way along with all the wisdom life teaches you, one way or the other.

Well, I must have had a lot to learn because I sure have a lot of wisdom highlights.

So, if I stop and think, what  is some of the wisdom have I learned:
  • Never ignore your gut instinct.  Nine times out of ten, if not more often, you will regret it.
  • Raising kids and being married is hard work but great work if you can get it.
  • Friends are angels sent by God to be there in your happiest and unhappiest times and they make both better.
  • Pets are the only love money can buy.
  • You cannot count on anyone else to make you happy.  You have to make yourself happy through the choices you make and by deciding to be happy instead of unhappy.
  • Memories are better than things.  Hands down.
  • Most of the things you worry about are not worth all the time and effort you put forth worrying about them.
  • Accepting that there are certain things you do not have the power to change is huge.
  • You can never run away from yourself no matter how far or how fast you run.
  • Some days the best you can do is continue to put one foot in front of the other and if you do that things are guaranteed to get better.
  • You should never be ashamed to ask for help.
  • No one is always happy.  If they were, they would be unable to recognize what happy is.
  • Life takes work.  Hard work.  Don't quit.
Yep, some of this gray is definitely wisdom highlights.
