Regina Brett’s 45 life lessons and 5 to grow on

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 to waste time hating anyone.

4. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

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. Life is too short for long pity parties. Get busy living, or get busy dying.

17. You can get through anything if you stay put in today.

18. A writer writes. If you want to be a writer, write.

19. It’s never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is 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. Overprepare, then go with the flow.

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

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: “In five years, will this matter?”

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone everything.

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

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

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

32. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

33. Believe in miracles.

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

35. Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.

36. Growing old beats the alternative - dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood. Make it memorable.

38. Read the Psalms. They cover every human emotion.

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

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

41. Don’t audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

42. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.

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

44. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

45. The best is yet to come.

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

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

48. If you don’t ask, you don’t get.

49. Yield.

50. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.

How Many Facebook Games Do You Play?

It’s a fair question right? Pretty much everyone plays at least one Facebook game these days, well almost everyone :) They’re easy to set up, they can take much of your free time and anyone can get into them relatively easily. Fast forward a bit though and you start to realize that if you want to do well at these games, they’re actually quite hard. You’re not going to blast from level 1 to whatever the level cap is in your game of choice over night. But probably that’s why people are addicted to them.

My newest addiction is Roller Coaster Kingdom. I had played a bit of FarmVille and Mafia Wars and had done well enough.

One of the most popular content monitoring providers removes the -beta and becomes free for lifetime

 

Today, one of the top notch content monitoring services TheWebWatcher.com (http://www.thewebwatcher.com) removed the -beta after three years of fine-tuning and stated that the service will be free for lifetime.

“However the customers are strongly encouraged to donate when they are using the service for commercial needs.”, they said.

The service will be free for lifetime and that changes the plans of the team to make it payable after the beta- period. The users that can afford to donate however will have a “special” flag on their accounts that will increase the limits of URLs that can be monitored per account. (more…)

Има на къде в софийското метро :)

Ако ви се налага да ползвате софийското метро сутрин, за да отидете на работа и се ядосвате, че винаги е пълно и “няма повече накъде”, ето отговора: “винаги има място за още един”.

Незнам дали след като пуснат новите станции на софийското метро ще увеличат капацитета на влакчетата (или сгъстят интервала на движение), но ето как са се “справили” с проблема японците :)

ТВ2 - осъзнайте се хора!

След дълго чакане и надежда за нещо ново, интересно и по-нормално в родния ефир получаваме поредната порция чалга!

Едно голямо разочарование от хора, които наистина могат да ни покажат нещо стойностно. На всички ни е ясно, че скандалното продава, но това ли е начинът?! (more…)

Една разходка из Витоша

Ако обичате планината, но не сте много активен турист, ако искате да избягате от градската жега, но живеете в западните квартали в София, ако бензинът ви е скъп, но обичате да ходите пеша, трябва да сте непоправим оптимист, че Витоша е райското кътче за вас.

От няколко години автобуси за Витоша от кв. Овча купел няма. От още повече години не работи Княжевският лифт. Единствената възможност е да ползвате маршрутка – хем евтино, хем бързо. Да, ама не (както казваше един известен журналист). И това е така, защото маршрутката е една, идва на 30 минути, но от Банкя и докато стигне до Руски паметник вече е пълна. (more…)

WWF - активно и за България

WWF присъства на Балканите отдавна, най-вече във връзка с Дунавско-Карпатската програма (Тази програма работи от 1998 г. Основните й цели са опазването, възстановяването на биологичното разнообразие и гарантирането на устойчиво развитие на два от определените 200 най-ценни екологични региона в света - басейна на река Дунав и Карпатите). Но след приемането на България в ЕС, нашите екологични проблеми стават проблеми и на организацията, предимно заради обвързаността на страната ни с различни изисквания в тази област, и реакциите са светкавични. Сега WWF има основание да критикува хората отговорни за някои разрушителни процеси в нашата природа. (more…)
