    51. I’m glad I was so good at emotional hoarding by holding grudges about things that didn’t really matter against people I loved and adored.

    I love your posts! You rock and always bring a huge smile to my face… xxoo… oh and #4 is classic. Just classic.

    • http://www.barefootbeginnings.net Tina Williamson

      That’s a good one Kimberley!
      I love number 4 as well! It’s an ongoing joke between my husband and I :) Thanks so much for your kind words.

  • Rachel

    Sorry, don’t agree with number 22!

    • http://www.barefootbeginnings.net Tina Williamson

      This one made me laugh, I’m a big fan of the walking dead myself lol!

  • Elaine

    Number 4 is an ongoing joke in this household too – particularly as one of our family are using them as justification for a new house. Apparently, it’s going to add value to it…

  • Janeen

    Hi Tina,
    I just came across your blog today..no accident for sure..:-). What a great reminder on how to live life.. Thank you and have a blessed day..

    Query, however, whether the statements would all be the same if we were talking about final years instead of final days? No one needs money if they’re dying tomorrow, but would you want to spend your final years in poverty? From that perspective, the ones targeting materialism or relationships ring true, but not so sure about the ones targeting hard work or savings.
