    Sayings to live by

    I was chatting with my sister last night, trying to help her sort through a pile of drama and it got me thinking. We make life so frustrating and complicated because we so often create our own emotions out of unrealistic expectations and false assumptions. As part of our conversation, I told her this:

    "Expect nothing, be grateful for the little things, and the world is your oyster."

    I think this is my phrase to live by.

    I'd love you hear yours. Please share!

    'You can only be taken advantage of by others if you allow it.'

    'Never make someone a priority who only makes you an option.'

    "When people show you who they are, believe them.'

    'Yesterday is the past, tomorrow is the future, and today is a gift. Which is why it's called the present.'

    "When one door closes, another one opens up. You just have to be ready to walk through it."

    That's probably the best piece of advice my grandma ever gave me, and I'll carry it with me forever. I'm getting a tattoo on my arm that says 'Look for the open door'. :) Another one was when things got rough, she'd say, "This too shall pass". And she was always right.

    The only person who can make you feel inferior is yourself.

    No matter how bad it is, it can always be worse. Joe4d,

    "Do or do not. There is no try"..... yoda

    Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you're not going to make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. 'Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That's just the way it is. Josey Wales.

    There are three kinds of people, those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who wonder what happened.

    When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

    Life isn't like a box of's more like a jar of jalapenos. What you do today, might burn your butt tomorrow.

    The person at the top of the class receives the same degree as the person at the bottom.

    Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.
