Thirteen truths that have changed my life...




1. If you don't love yourself no one will... How could they?

2. When someone says "If you loved me, you'd do this for me", they really mean "I don't give a shit about you, satisfy me. Dump them, they don't care about you!!!

3. Rock bottom isn't the same for everyone... And it's not until you've hit it that you can change your life...

4. If you don't forgive your own mistakes, you'll never move on... I know some mistakes, errors are terrible but holding anger at yourself will not help you.

5. There's nothing you can't fix with the truth. And truth WILL set you free... There is nothing that drives people more insane that living a lie. Been there, done that, bought the tshirt.

6. God's love is magnificent! He changes our heart....

7. Perception is everything... That and attitude can change the way you see things.

8. People don't read your mind, if you don't say what you feel, no one can guess it. People aren't mind readers... SAY IT! EXPRESS YOURSELF!!!

9. The only person I have control over is myself.

10. Letting go is a powerful and very amazing thing....

11. When there's a will, there's a way. Sky is the limit!

12. It's possible to have a second chance in life and fully live it... I'm the poster-child for this

13. Friends are the most precious treasure in the world..Cherish them! Tell people you love them daily. Tell them how you appreciate them. Tell people how you feel about them. Life's short, live it!!!

That's a great list! I needed that today because I just found out that my divorce was finalized.

Thanks for stopping by my TT! Yes, an expensive Christmas, but I have spread the list around, so I am not getting every expensive thing on it. That's what uncles, aunts, daddys, and grandparents are for...haha!

Hi, I'm back! And I agree to all 13 as I've struggled with or experienced all of them at one time or another. Wonderful list... wish I'd thought of it, LOL! :o)

These lists are so true. If only we humans are strong enough to live up to it then our lives would completely change. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, that's a very thoughtful and very true list.
To #9 I would add "and no-one has control over you, as long as you don't allow it!"

#1, #2 and #8 are lessons I had to learn the hard way.

These are some wonderful truths you've been blessed with. It's wonderful to see someone who knows they've been given another chance and have taken it to heart.

jennwa said...

That is an amazing list. All of it is so true.

jehara said...

i agree with number two. that is so manipulative. also when someone says "if you do x, i will kill myself."

get out, pronto!

Mom not Mum said...

Great list - I would have to add that nobody "knows you better than you know yourself" If they say they do they are just trying to manipulate you in to doing what they want.

greatlist happy tt

Dee Dee said...

Great list! Happy T13!

No Nonsense Girl said...

Thanks guys!!! You are awesome!!! I'm happy after reading each of your comments...

These truths are life changing and once you love yourself, the rest follows!!!!

Chelley : here's a (((hug)) for you!!!!

No Nonsense Girl said...

Gal herself: #7 was for me a revelation because our perception influences the way we see things, the way we interract with others... Our attitude when faced with problems. when faced with life, our attitudd toward the rest has more influence than you think...

Seeing the glass half full or half empty. Seeing diffult situation as an opportunity to grow...

I'm wise but I'm also supported by friends who are wiser/more experienced than I am and share this with me.

What helps is that I'm a optimistic, positive kinda gal.

Go girl, sky's the limit!!!! :)

damozel said...

Thanks very much for reminding me of some things I seem to need to be reminded of EVERY DAY. So easy to forget that nothing lasts so you've got to give people love while you can. And you're so right about the power of letting go.

Thanks for visiting ours!
