Chila Wolchik started this, and I think it’s a fantastic idea. Here are mine.
1.) Change is coming your only choice is how you chose to greet it; as a friend bringing opportunities and revealing strength you didn’t know you had, or as an enemy out to destroy your safe little sphere.
2.) True friends tell you want you need to hear in a way you can hear it, not what you want to hear.
3.) It’s easy to hate a group of people. It’s hard to talk to a person from that group, really talk to them and listen to them, and hate them.
4.) True Christ-followers are a minority, especially among professing Christians.
5.) It’s never easy to lose someone you love. You could have loved them for a day or a thousand years, the time you have with them is never enough.
6.) Your heart will tell you a million lies and one truth. Your head will tell you a million truths and one lie. Make sure you have a really good lie detector. I recommend the Bible.
7.) You will give an account for every idle word spoken one day. Every idle word. For a writer, I think this is true of every idle word written.
8.) There are a lot of books that never should have made it out of a slush pile and into print
9.) While death is the final enemy and ultimately it loses, in the hear and now, it really sucks.
10.) Celebrate the little victories in whatever long war you’re fighting
11.) A cup of hot chocolate is a really marvelous way to end a good day. Or a bad one.
12.) Look past your own life, and leave something beautiful for those who will come behind you when you are dust.
