Good things to remember

先日、前の前の職場で、とてもよくしてもらったエンジニアから、上記タイトルのメールをもらいました。しょっちゅうではないですが、彼らは時々、仲間内でおもしろい(たいていはユーモアあふれる)メールを転送しあっていて、当時私にもよく転送されてきていたのですが、職場を離れても、こうやって送ってきてくれる、その気持ちがとても嬉しかったです。特に今回は、内容がとても素敵というか、印象的だったので、皆さんにもぜひ読んでいただきたいと思いました。
以下、その転送されてきたメールをそのまま記載しますね。

This is something we should all read at least once a week!

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

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone...

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it..

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.

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.

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.

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.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?

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.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative - dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

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

41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

42. The best is yet to come.

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift


Its estimated 93% won't forward this. If you are one of the 7% who will, forward this with the title %.
I'm in the 7% Remember that I will always share my spoon with you!

Friends are the family that we choose for ourselves.


さて、いかがでした?楽しんでいただけたでしょうか?皆さんのご感想は?
何番のレッスンが好きですか?

遅くなってすみません~やっと参りました。
どれも深い言葉ですよね。選ぶのは難しいなあ…あえて選ぶとしたら、
19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does. (これはイギリス人よく言いますね)

42. The best is yet to come.

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

こんな感じでしょうか。practical と wit と wisdom がほどよく混ざったいいリストですね。Thanks for sharing this!

makiさん、お忙しい中書き込みいただきありがとうございます!
#32、イギリス人よく言うんですね。そういえばそんな感じしますね。言った後ニヤッと笑うか、ウィンクしそう。#43、覚えていたいですね、着替えて外に出るだけでも気分が変わることありますものね。

ちなみに、私も好きなのはたくさんあるんですが、今の気分で選ぶトップ10は、
#1(まさに), 13(人と比べない), #17(こういう美意識を持てばシンプルに暮らせそう), #19(makiさんと同じです), #21(どうしても特別な日用にとっておきたくなるけど、今日こそが特別という気持ちを持っていたい), #23(エキセントリックであることをよしとする、この心意気がマル), #29(他人がどう思うと気にしない!), #39(奇跡はどこにでもある、それに気がつくことのできる感性をもっていたいです), #41(自分にも子供にも言えることです), #45(リボンはかかってないけど素晴らしい贈り物), です。

気になるフレーズは、その時の状況や気分によって変わるかもしれませんね。でも最初と最後のメッセージは、90歳の「本物の大人」の方がおっしゃっているだけあって、細かい説明はないけれど、説得力あります。
