…advice for 2008…

Posted: November 19, 2007 in Uncategorized


Don’t date because you are desperate.
Don’t marry because you are miserable.
Don’t have kids because you think your genes are superior.
Don’t philander because you think you are irresistible.
Don’t associate with people you can’t trust.

Don’t cheat. Don’t lie. Don’t pretend.
Don’t dictate because you are smarter.
Don’t demand because you are stronger.
Don’t sleep around because you think you are old enough and know better.
Don’t hurt your kids because loving them is harder.

Don’t sell yourself, your family, or your ideals.
Don’t stagnate.
Don’t regress.

Don’t live in the past.
Time can’t bring anything or anyone back.
Don’t put your life on hold for possibly Mr/Mrs Right.
Don’t throw your life away on absolutely Mr /Mrs Wrong
because your biological clock is ticking.

Learn a new skill.
Find a new friend.
Start a new career.

Sometimes, there is no race to be won.
Only a price to be paid for some of life’s more hasty decisions.

To terminate your loneliness, reach out to the homeless.
To feed your nurturing instincts, care for the needy.
To fulfil your parenting fantasies, get a puppy.

Don’t bring another life into this world for all the wrong reasons.
To make yourself happy, pursue your passions and be the best of what you can be.

Simplify your life.
Take away the clutter.
Get rid of destructive elements: abusive friends, nasty habits, and dangerous liaisons.

Don’t abandon your responsibilities but don’t overdose on duty.
Don’t live life recklessly without thought and feeling for your family.

Be true to yourself.
Don’t commit when you are not ready.
Don’t keep others waiting needlessly.
Go on that trip. Don’t postpone it.
Say those words. Don’t let the moment pass.
Do what you have to, even at society’s scorn.

Write poetry.
Love Deeply.
Walk barefoot.
Dance with wild abandon.
Cry at the movies.
Take care of yourself.
Don’t wait for someone to take care of you.

You light up your life.
You drive yourself to your destination.
No one completes you – except YOU.

It is true that life does not get easier with age.
It only gets more challenging.
Don’t be afraid.
Don’t lose your capacity to love.

Pursue your passions.
Live your dreams.
Don’t grow old.
Just grow YOU!


(Ek weet nie van julle nie, maar ek gaan probeer om ten minste
80% van bogenoemde reg te kry in 2008!)

    Sjoe, maar daar is baie moets en moenies vir volgende jaar! En ek sukkel gewoonlik om net een nuwejaarsvoorneme reg te kry! Alles baie waar.
    (Met watter 20% gaan jy cheat?)

  2. Da Mario sê:

    Net 80% Renetjie?? 😈
    Ek sal ook graag weet op watter 20% jy wil cheat!!

    Ek dink nie dis ‘n te moeilike lysie nie, alhoewel die “Don’t philander because you think you are irresistable” ene my bietjie vang. Ek verkies om myself eerder as “liefdevol” te sien…. 😆

  3. BB sê:

    As ek dit regkry om dit toe te pas het jy my sopas gehelp om van ‘n 7 nader aan ‘n 8 te laat beweeg…
    (my blog se gerammel 😉
    Thanks skat! nice inskrywing! x

  4. Dankie vir die goeie raad 🙂

    shoe ek wens ek kon net helfte van hulle aanpak… maar ek kan probeer!
