'This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure
you read to the end!!!!!!

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.


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. Wheit 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."'

At GameColony.com you can play games of skill only -- play for free or play for $prizes!. According to the statutes of most states in the United States, gambling is defined as: "risking something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance". (Also see No Gambling!).   The skill (as opposed to chance) is predominant in games of skill. Playing games of skill for $prizes, therefore, has nothing to do with gambling as it is not a contest of chance -- the more skillful player will win far more often. The chance element of a 'gamble' is either insignificant or missing. When players compete in tournaments or games of skill for $prizes -- it is "competitive entertainment" rather then "gambling". The more skilled winner will always win more matches, tournaments and $prizes.
