Or good afternoon to some, I suppose. How’s your day going? Mine is going well, thanks for asking. 😉
Let’s play a little game…
hehe. Just kidding.
But seriously, I’m bored and up early for work, so tell me:
What is your favorite funny/motivational quote, and why?
Mine is, “I’ve developed a new philosophy…I only dread one day at a time. -Charles Shulz.” This quote I find hilarious, and it really puts things in perspective for me. And, of course, even when life is going great (as it is right now for me), things still happen, and my anxiety still exists and is with me on a daily basis…but I find new ways to deal with the anxiety and stress, and I come out happier because of it.
So, tell me, what is your favorite quote, and why?

Good morning! =)
My motivational quote/lyric is: “Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.”
I absolutely love The Beatles. I was going through a really rough time before I met Darling Husband and was not doing well personally. I had a moment of clarity one afternoon listening to “Let It Be” and began sobbing. It helped and affected me so much that I even have it tattooed on the back of my neck to keep it as a reminder to myself (and others who read it!). =)

Ooooohhh I wanna play!
“You’re only given a little spark of madness, so don’t loose it!” Robin Williams.
Sometimes I just need that reminder to let go and enjoy the crazyness in life.

Mine is super geeky. It’s ‘gnothi seauton’ which translates as ‘know yourself’ (roughly, I know very basic ancient greek only). I take it to mean understand yourself and also to be true to yourself. Maybe not to worry about impressing or fitting in with everyone else so much.
An extra geek fact for anyone who cares is that it was one of the phrases at the temple of Apollo in Delphi where the oracle was. Also the Latin version is in the house of the oracle in The Matrix.

“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.”

…And one more, for good measure:
“Recognize that the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life. So that we are all connected to each other biologically, to the earth chemically and to the rest of the universe atomically.”
-Neil deGrasse Tyson
