What's Your Mantra?

Ok.....I might have over reacted yesterday....ouch! Not that all the crazy stuff didn't happen, cause it did, but I ended up handling with the appropriate grace and charm....NAUGHT! I went home early cried and went to bed early. But today I feel better. I didn't weigh in last night, but I will today. I am sure that things will be better today. I do love my job, it's just "sometimes"....I know you all know what I mean.

So today I will remember MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!~ This will be my new mantra! The other will be be THIS IS NOT ABOUT YOU...IT RARELY IS~! The other one will....BE GRATEFUL, YOU INGRATE!~ I could go on and on. I think you get the point.

I have found there is no quicker way to get rid of a resentment then to do ANONYMOUS service for the victim of my resentment. GRRR. That is like swallowing bitter medicine, but it cures me 9 times out of 10! Lucky bastards.....

My life is good. Why bitch about things I have no control over. I will treat myself with love today. Making decisions that will make me feel better the long run. If I am not careful....I may just "grow up" before I'm 50! Let's keep our fingers crossed!

Keep the mood and the food real.......what's your mantra??


  1. My kids need to eat...my kids need to eat. LOL

  2. Mine is - First, do no harm. As in don't make it worse!


  3. Praying for two weeks for the bastards also works, I've found - much to my chagrin!

    I have to work extra hard to remember "It isn't all about you" - love all your mantras today, except for the tacked on "you ingrate" - that is a word I would never associate with you, Dana.

  4. God Grant Me the Sensibility to Eat the Things I Should, the Courage to Not Eat the Things I Shouldn’t, and the Wisdom to Know the Difference.

  5. I probably have so many different mantra to fit any given situation..geesh! ..I too tend to take things personally and rarely are they about me. I try hard to stop taking myself and life so seriously. And in recent years i've been more successful....maybe its just the maturing process. ( Being over 40 that is)
    I want to thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my blog of late. It means alot. Take care of yourself. Take it one day at a time.

  6. TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY. You don't know how many times I say that mantra. It totally helps for so many different situations.

    I like your mantra IT'S NOT ABOUT ME. IT RARELY IS. Gonna have to place that one on my computer monitor.

  7. Mine are: With Faith all things are possible and Tomorrow is another day (Paula!)

  8. Mine is "Make the best of things". Loved all your Mantra's too they definitely would work for me too. Glad you're feeling better *hugs*.

  9. My mantra is "Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer." ;)

  10. Mantra for eating right: nothing tastes as good as being thin feels.

    Mantra for life: do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

    Unfortunately not everyone follows that second one.

  11. I like "life is an adventure, so train for it".

    I too am still learning, sigh...

  12. Mine is: a week from now things will be different!

  13. my mantra is: blog...blog...blog.


    that last one not so positive but effective.

    <3 <3 <3 puffy heart love for you!


Tell me what you think!
