To celebrate growing older

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."
My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is my column once more:

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. When it 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.

Tara Louise Notcutt (director), Albert Pretorius and Gideon Lombard (actors) who joined us to chat about a production called ‘Miskien’ presented by The Pink Couch in association with GO2 Production Management.

‘Miskien’ is about the spaces between people,and what we do, what we don’t do, what we say and what we keep to ourselves when we want to fill them. It is about saying the unsayable.

Performed in English and Afrikaans, and devised by the company, ...miskien is simple: a story about two regular guys. Two guys - best friends - from similar backgrounds, similar jobs and similar dead end lives. Check it out at the Intimate Theatre 37 Orange Street Cape Town or contact 072 569 8287
Dates: 1 - 12 SeptemberTime: 20h30Tickets: R60 adult, R40 studentsBookings: 072 569 8287 /

We were also joined by Lauren Rogers and Xola Putye. Lauren and Xola are the principle dancers in one of the most popular romantic ballets eer called ‘Giselle’. Performances of Giselle in South Africa date from as far back as 1947, when Alexis Rassine partnered Olive James in a production of the second act, mounted by the South African National Ballet, at the City Hall in Cape Town.

The version that the Cape Town City Ballet brings to the Baxter in September was first created by the late David Poole in the Nico Malan Opera House in 1972, with Phyllis Spira partnered by Eduard Greyling in the leading roles. For more details check out

Imagine every day to be the last of a life surrounded with hopes, cares, anger and fear. The hours that come unexpectedly will be much the more grateful.

That’s it for the Morning Cruise, where we cruise through your weekday here on BushRadio 89.5fm live on your stereo between 9am – 12pm with me Denisia Adams. Take Care ... make the best of your day and Keep the Faith. Stay Real!!!!!!!!!!
