More selected advice from Regina Brett:
It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
Life is too short for long pity parties. Get busy living, or get busy dying.
No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
