Twenty Truths to Remember

1. Faith is the ability to not panic.
2. If you worry, you didn't pray. If you pray, don't worry.
3. As a child of God, prayer is kind of like calling home every day
4. Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape
5. When we get tangled up in our problems, be still. God wants us to be still so He can untangle the knot
6. Do your maths. Count your blessings
7. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts
8. Dear God: I have a problem. It's me
9. Silence is often misinterpreted, but never misquoted
10. Laugh every day, it's like inner jogging
11. The most important things in your home are the people.
12. Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional
13. There is no key to happiness. The door is always open
14. A grudge is a heavy thing to carry, better to lose it
15. He who dies with the most toys is still dead
16. We do not remember days, but moments. Life moves too fast, so enjoy your precious moments
17. Nothing is real to you until you experience it, otherwise it's just hearsay.
18. It's all right to sit on your pity pot every now and again. Just be sure to flush when you are done.
19. Surviving and living your life successfully requires courage. The goals and dreams you're seeking require courage and risk-taking. Learn from the turtle - it only makes progress when it sticks out its neck
20. Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are

  2. Amen to #20!
    Sometimes an apparent reputation is built on the fragile foundation of a forced character. The real character should instead withstand the trials of any weak or humanly-misjudged reputation.
    In other words, don't be "hoa kwa boh hoh jiak" (hokkien la).
