Mine is, “I make no mistakes because I’m always learning.” It helps me recover from any disappointment.

‘I Expect Nothing So I Don’t Suffer Disappointment’.

This is so powerful, having expectations sets me up for disappointment, so I stopped having any. 😜🌺💜

Yes. From Buddha

No but I was on the bus the other day and this senior lady was coming out with a load of gems

"We all need some me time" was the first piece of advice she gave the guy who had struck up a conversation with her actually he was kind of complaining about his life and talking about having a day off work

"its a good job we can't see what 's around the corner " was another

The other was " don't lose your sense of humour"

I really admired this lady

She sounds awesome. I feel like the wisdom from older people who have been on this planet longer is ignored too often.

The wisdom to know the difference is the part I struggle with 😊

I LOVE that one!

“Everything that happens to me is the best possible thing that could happen to me!” From Zen and the art of happiness.

I love it so much, it’s basically what kept me going and not dwelling on the past.

Also

“If you don’t know something for sure, then don’t think about it” by Me 😂. Basically, “if you don’t have all the facts then don’t give it your energy”👌🏻

I love both of them but especially the second one. So often I make up something in my head that is completely inaccurate and not based in fact and then I start spinning. Good reminder!!

I really like a good quote. A few of my faves are:

If your not happy with what you've got, how can you be happy with more.

Everyone needs a habit. Make it a good one.

I’ve spent my whole adult life working with abused children in foster care as a therapist. Never had kids but they are my kids. Right when I started it felt as easy as breathing. My greatest gift
