“Begin with the End in Mind” (quote by Steve Covey)

(something to do, someone to love, something to hope for)

  • Grief journal – do it faithfully.
  • Ability to forgive – learn what it means.
  • Deal with and let go of anger issues.
  • Create a memory bank – draw from that memory bank often.
  • Deal with your loneliness issues.
  • Deal with your guilt, blame, and shame issues.
  • Choose the positive memories to dwell on.
  • Work to resolve the negative issues.
  • Read a Psalm from Holy Bible each day.
  • Find something to be thankful for (feelings follow thinking).
  • Give your sorrows to God in prayer.
  • Find a place to “empty your bucket” (cry).
  • Get out of your way while healing.
  • Live “on purpose”.
  • Laughter is a tranquilizer (with no side effects).
  • Sing when you don’t feel like it.
  • Get up when you don’t feel like it.
  • Do what you have been delaying for 15 min.
  • Love with insight. Cope, just a letter away from Hope.” (Wandaism)
  • Take the high road – leads to better life.
  • Be real at all times.
  • Pass on the “bait” – it will “hook” you.
  • You are in “it”, going into “it”, or coming out of “it.”
  • Know your top 3 needs every day.
  • Be careful who you give your “last straw” to.
  • You’re first! (like placing the oxygen mask on you first during an airline emergency).
  • Choose thoughts carefully, no “stinking thinking”.
  • Do for yourself as much as you would do for others.
  • Find a friend you can do nothing with and enjoy it.
  • Be very careful with assumptions.
  • Reminder: a brief life is not a life without value.
  • Understand you will never understand everything.
  • “We live in a 2-story world, our story and their story – Listen”. (Wandaism)
