Flying with the second 15

I apologize, I guess I was multi-tasking too much! I sent the final 15 out before these!

I really appreciated these 45 rules. Here are the second 15:

Written By Regina Brett, 90 years old, of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland,"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:

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger. (Yes, but how much stronger do I really need to be?)
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. (I am in love with my 600 count sheets. Yes, they cost a bit more, but they make me feel wonderful)
22. Over prepare, 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. (Love it!)
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.2
6. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?' (This should be a bumper sticker)
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. (I have a huge problem following this one)
