Oh yes, that is my new motto.
(that and love your body baby!! ) Thanks Ellen!!!
Right now mine would have to be
"lifes a dance you learn as you go
sometimes you lead sometimes you follow
don't worry about what you don't know
lifes a dance you learn as you go
the longer i live the more i believe
you do have to give if you want to receive
there's a time to listen a time to talk
and you might have to craw even after you walk
had sure things blow up in my face
seen the long shot win the race
been knocked down by the slamming door
picked myself up and came back for more"
from John Michael Montgomery's song Lifes A Dance
"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27.
This has brought me immense comfort over the past few months.
A happy life consists not in the absence, but in the mastery of hardships.

"Deserves got nothing to do with it." Clint Eastwood, Unforgiven
"You can't control the way others behave. You can only control how you react to it."
and one of my all time favorites when face with a seemingly insurmountable task: "How do you eat an elephant?"
(of course the answer is "one bite at a time")
This is the one I tell my clients, its my favorite:
?Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.?
I think Vivian Greene or the interpret of the dance quote... not sure.
"experience is what you get when you dont get what you wanted."
... to forgive, divine.
My father used to say this one a lot, it's Hebrew. It goes: Mi hu haashir, hasameach b'chelko.
Who is rich? Who is happy with his lot.
I'm your mother and you'll do what you're told!(and I still do)(well mostly)
I was thinking of this thread the other day when this saying popped into my head (hebrew again).
Mi hu hachacham?
Halomed mikol adam.
Who is the wisest one?
Who learns from everyone.
My grandma used to say "Best to have one bird in the hand than two flying away."
