Getting Older

A good friend of mine sent me the following email and encouraged me to forward it to everyone I know. I don’t do that. I guess I feel I’m imposing on my friends and clients. However, I did like the email enough to post it here for you.

Words of Wisdom

In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+
birthday. Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older.

And, there on television, she said it was “exciting.”

Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring
every day..like her breasts. They seem to be in a race to
see which will reach her waist first. The audience laughed
so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman,
with so much wisdom in her words! Maya Angelou said this:

“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it
seems today, life does go on, and it will be better
tomorrow.”

“I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way
he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and
tangled Christmas tree lights.”

“I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your
parents,you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.”

“I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing
as “making a life.”

“I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.”

“I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s
mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back.”

“I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open
heart, I usually make the right decision.”

“I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.”

“I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch
someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.”

“I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.”

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will
forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them
feel.”
