Lesson Number Forty-Three: All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

God is love. God is the beginning, God is the end. As simple as that. Yet it pains my heart that much to see how little we love and how big we hate. We are now in the new generation. Could we all start letting go of the hatred that had been handed down from our ancestors of the past and start living a life of pure happiness and bliss through love?

We have so many songs about love; so many poems about love; so many stories about love... Yet, why are we still miserable and are living a life short of it? If there is that great love in our hearts, there would be no more hatred, no more wars, no more unhappiness, no more sadness...

I love so much the line of this song that goes, ..."I found the greatest love of all inside of me".... Perhaps this is what we lack: the love inside of us; the love we have for ourselves. Let us start loving ourselves, for how can we love others if we do not have that love for ourselves? And let us love truly because in the end this is all that matters...

Get happy!

Lesson Number Forty-Two: Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

... like hatred, jealousy, pride, anger, resentment, and anything that makes us unhappy. There are a lot of unhappy people in this grand universe because of these negative emotions. It is time to let go of them now and enjoy a life filled with beauty, happiness and joy.  

There are 3 ways to get rid of anything unhelpful in our life.

1. Get rid of garbage. ( Surroundings ) Any garbage. All garbage from the kitchen, from inside the house, or even those inside the closet. Yes, those unused clothing that sit in your closet for years. Give them away. Donate them. You not only get rid of them, but would make other people happy too. Let go of those blessings so that there would be enough space to receive another blessing again.

2. Get rid of the excess fat. ( Physical ) Are there any? We all know that excess fat is not good for our health. Not only excess fat, but excess sugar, excess blood pressure and all other excesses as well. Go outside, get some exercise, eat right, live right. This is the best regimen for a healthier and longer life.

3. Get rid of the negatives. ( Mental ) Yes, negative thoughts, negative feelings and negative finances. We all know that all of these negative feelings and emotions can drain our energies; so why harbor them inside when they are not useful and beautiful? We only need to pray harder and be determined to have God in our life in order to get rid of these. As to negative finances, when everything is easier to acquire nowadays, including debt, it is best to shy away from it especially when we have not the additional income to augment our finances. All we need is discipline. It is not easier said than done because to live happily is our aim, and we all long for that.

There we have it. Hope we all learn from it that we may one day wake up to a useful, beautiful and joyful life.

Get happy!

Lesson Number Forty-One: Don't audit life.  Show up and make the most of it now.

Yeah, this is where I almost always fall. Most of the time I could be an auditor or mathematician who is always counting on what life had been offering me and hadn't. I always ask why it offers much to others and to me less. Why and so many whys. Instead of being grateful, I was spiteful. Anyway, Regina Brett suggest to show up and make the most of life. Honestly, I have so much difficulty in showing up. I still have my issues, that's why. Painful or not, the reality is there could be no perfect situation. Showing up and making the most of life is much, much easier said than done. Regina Brett suggests this because she might have done her part all too well. But for me, oh God, help me. Showing up is not my cup of tea. But it is the only way to be grateful with life and to stop auditing life.

I am still alive, which means I have to do my part if I were to make the most of life. And this lesson? I am still on my way of passing the test.

Get happy!

Regina Brett's Fifty Life Lessons: The Fortieth Lesson

Lesson Number Forty: If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

There is no life that is hassle free and problems free. The reason why we strive so hard in life is because we have problems to solve and overcome. If we have no problems, we would never know the joy of fulfillment. Everything would just go so easily. And the worst of all, we would never know the value of things if we do not put all our efforts, heart and soul in them.

If you think you are doomed or uncared for by God because your problems seem limitless and insurmountable, friend you must rejoice, for it is in your problems that you must hold on to God the most.  It is the time when you feel so near to God, if you just would be humble enough to bring those problems to God. And the good thing is God always cares...

Most especially, when you feel so overwhelmed by your problems, slow down, look at others and you'll know how heavy their burdens are too. It may not be obvious for others because they might have the ability to carry their problems with strength and determination, but for some who are weaker, they ended up with bullet in their heads. Worst, they include others in their suicide. We could only pray for their souls.

So, if you are suffering now of whatever problems there is in your life just be calm and know that there is God. Yes, He cares and He loves you. Go to Him, He is waiting.

Get happy!
