Until 2004, I was an independent and active woman -- a former airline sales exec and then a high school educator. Then my body kept betraying me. I was finally diagnosed with ALS/Lou Gehrig's Disease -- confined to a wheelchair and unable to speak. With life at a slower pace, I learned to live a more conscious and mindful life -- buying, eating and other choices. I listen instead of talking, and I observe instead of running and rushing.

Let me know what you think, or if you have any "harsh truths" to add to the list.

I like Dumb Little Man and these 8 truths are a great lesson. We do spend a lot of time in life worrying about stuff we shouldn't. Things change. That's a big one for me. Just accept change. I do now, but it took a long time to figure that out.
Great advice! How about "Slow down"? We're all in such a big hurry all the time that we don't see life passing us by!
