This too shall pass.
And really hope it will do. Soon.

Jane said...

The ones I live by are 'don't take things personally' (source: my husband), 'everything happens for a reason' (source: my father) and 'do what you love' (have just worked that one out for myself!). Sorry that's three but its hard to cut down!!

When God closes one door he opens another. I find it is usually even better than the one closed. Another is enjoy the journey. In my early 20's I spent way to much time stressing over stuff, now I just try to enjoy the journey.

Go to bed angry. This has saved my marriage. Sleeping on it seems to make most things seem trivial and better in the morning--when if we had talked it through the night before we could have fought all night.

BE the change you want to see in the world.

marinik said...

your answer is exactly what I wanted to say..."this too shall pass"... my late husband used to say it all the time... and ... it always did.
and thanks Jane for giving us this pleasant game to play every day... hope you're enjoying yourself :)

Never postpone joy.

Breathe.

Trust in the Universe.

(all of which I would like to have inked on my skin one day as a constant reminder.)

My Father once told me "your reputation will follow you in life." - Excellent advice.

Sammi said...

Without even scrolling down to see the answer, I thought "this too shall pass"! I think its the most sound piece of advice in the world.

My parents always taught me to realize my self worth. It has helped me my entire life.

Kathy said...

Don't do your worrying at night as perspective changes with the light of day.

From my Aunt Rosilie, "Don't sweat the small stuff". From (I think)Oscar Wilde, "The best revenge is a good life"

malo said...

I had to think about it but now I am pretty sure that "count to ten" is the best advice I have ever got. And also to accept the things you can't change. Or live the moment. A hard one this is :-)

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

JennyMac said...

Treat every job you work at like you own the company. It has helped me tremendously.

One "free" advice I give to my friends that are moms is: pick your battle. xoxo

Shut up and listen!!

Dorit said...

love this last one about the fingers. I wonder if that could make me a lady ;)
"relax and enjoy" is the best advise given to me, and I'm still trying to learn it.
