Healthy Living and the 38 Things I've Learned In 38 Years


Today I completed my 38th trip around the sun. Here are the 38 random things I have learned during these revolutions:
  1. Being lazy feels good now, but regretful later.
  2. People that love you don’t care what you look like or what you do.
  3. Just because you’ve lived 38 years it doesn’t mean you have to have a 38” waist.
  4. Learning doesn’t stop when you are out of school.
  5. Doing something for someone else is more gratifying than doing what you want.
  6. Winning isn’t everything, but striving to be your best is.
  7. The woman is ALWAYS right
  8. Mom’s should be the ones getting the birthday present. They did all the work on that day.
  9. A man’s home isn’t HIS castle....at least as long as there is a big fat mortgage.
  10. Having to work hard for a goal makes achieving it more satisfying.
  11. Genetics are never an excuse for bad behavior.
  12. Pain is not an excuse for lack of movement.
  13. Having children is a greater achievement than all other things I have ever done, combined.
  14. Having money doesn’t change you, it just magnifies who you already are.
  15. Home is not where you are, it is who you are with.
  16. The dishwasher may have been the world’s greatest invention.
  17. To make exercise a habit, do something you enjoy. To make it worthwhile, do it HARD!
  18. Having hope makes any circumstance tolerable.
  19. Giving your money is great. Giving your time is priceless.
  20. The traditions you create with your kids will be their most treasured memories.
  21. Don’t wish your life away, enjoy the present.
  22. Time really does go by fast.
  23. Doctors make the worst patients.
  24. Doing something you are passionate about always beats doing what makes the most money.
  25. Nothing tastes as good as it feels to be healthy.
  26. Mothers-in-law sometimes are the best. Just know you are entrusted with her greatest treasure.
  27. A happy wife makes a happy life.
  28. I can endure just about anything for 1 minute or less. 
  29. A healthcare worker is more respected if they look like they take their own advice.
  30. The Bible has the best answer for any question.
  31. Seeing isn’t always believing.
  32. Indulge sparingly, enjoy always.
  33. Friends can be short-lived but family is for life.
  34. “No man is a failure who has friends.” (Angel from Its a Wonderful Life)
  35. Food is not an aphrodisiac, an antiseptic, or an anti-depressant. It is fuel. That is all.
  36. Once you have children, your hobbies can wait. You have more important things to do.
  37. Your future is too high a price to pay for short-lived pleasure.
  38. Whenever I feel out of control, remember God is in it.
