Thursday 13: the tequila edition

This is an e-mail gem in TT-format, in other words: here I am "thirteening an e-mail"! . This should probably be taped on a place where one could read it every day. You may not realize it, but it's very, very true.
01. There are at least two people in this world that you would die for.
02. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.
03. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.
04. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.
05. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
06. You mean the world to someone.
07. You are special and unique.
08. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.
09. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.
10. When you think the world has turned its back on you take another look.
11. Always remember the compliments you received.
12. Forget about the rude remarks.
13. And always remember:
when life hands you lemons...
ask for tequila and salt
and call me over!

  3. Saw the pictures of your elegant "coffee shops" and had to laugh ! I went to Amsterdam last week end and there Coffee Shops are for Hashish smokers but you also can drink a cup of coffee ! I wrote about that in my travel blog. Your list is very nice too !

  4. hi mar

    nice list...

    put a smile on my face

  5. This indeed is a a very true list. I felt all of this when my sister-in-law died yesterday morning. Never did I realize that she had so much friends who really loved her and wept for her loss. I was stunned at the number of people who visited before she gave her last breath and goodbye.
    My TT13 is up too.

  6. Ahhh, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside:-)

    It is all true tho (except maybe no. 8), and we should think like that more often.

    nice list. My TT is up

  7. Never saw it before but I liked it! Happy 13!

  8. What a nice positive list. I've been feeling a bit negative as you'll see if you visit my 13. I'm going to try to keep the items on your list in mind over the next few days. Thanks

  9. What a great list!! I got this the other day! My TT is up.

    Happy Thursday!

    Happy T13! My list's up!

  17. HA! Perfect! And yes! People should print this out and hang it up on the fridge. Thank you for posting something positive! (die-hard optimist here)

    And you know what? #3. I don't hate this woman, but I dislike her and now that I think about it? Yes, I WOULD like to be like her.

    Hhmm, something to think about ....

  18. What a great list, even is it was an email! It's something to really stop and think about.

  22. Great reminders! I'm definitely all for the last one LOL

  26. I've seen that before, but not the last bit about the Tequilla! It's a good perspective to have.

  27. Fabulous! Thanks for a bright spot in the day!

    Stop by my TT!

  28. Great list, I think I might have gotten something like that in my email before. It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes... something along the lines of "You might be just one person in the world, but to one person, you could be their whole world" or something like that! :)

    Have a great day, mine is up also...

  29. Wonderful news ;-)

    I just Love that #13 and I go for that one emmedietly....

  30. I LOVE THAT EMAIL and i also think it's very very true.

    i remember i once wrote it on a paper and gave it to my (at the time) boyfriend and said "number 1, 2, 5 and 6. me."

    it's a great idea to turn the email into a TT :)
    and if anyone calls you for that tequilla, leave me a message in my blog that i will come along haha =D

  31. Excellent TT - thanks I'm passing it along.
    Have a wonderful day.
    Oh and your WW was awesome.

  32. yup, good list! we should always keep this in mind whenever we're down. ;)

  33. Very cute. I wonder who #5 is?

    Thanks for visiting.

  34. ooh - I like that.....but who is number 2? 15 people??
    Enquiring minds need to know!

    Ah, number 7 - I have often been told I am Special.......

    My TT is up!

  35. Sounds great! That's one I've never received but I like it. Thanks for sharing.

  36. What an awesome list! You're definitely right: This should be printed out and on everyone's desk at work or home. I think sometimes everyone forgets that they are appreciated. It's nice to have a mental reminder.

    Happy Thursday to you!

  37. I agree, a very apt list considering my recent state of mind! Thanks for pointing me to it!

  38. There's some very insightful things in this list and some pure flattery, but they make me smile either way!


  39. Oh! That's like the best thing I've ever read - love it!!
