Mantras to live by

Some of these I learned from my mom (wise woman), some I learned to internalize over the years, and a few of them I found on Wikipedia!

  • Treat others they way you want to be treated yourself.
  • Do not compare yourself to others.
  • Be true to yourself.
  • Love and accept yourself for who you are.
  • Be kind.
  • Be honest.
  • Be real.
  • Be good to those you love and who love you.  Life is short and you don’t want to have regrets ever.
  • Do Not dwell on things that don’t deserve to be dwelled upon.
  • Expecting someone to be other than they have been is irrational behavior.
  • Life is not a dress rehearsal.
  • Keep on moving!
  • Less talk.  More do.
  • Live Long, Laugh Often, Love Much.You cannot control what happens to you, only how you act. (this one I need to practice!!)
  • Believe in Karma and act accordingly
  • Adopting a “victim” mentality only serves to focus on a lack of power or strength.
  • No more martyrs – focus on what you can or should do rather than adopt an attitude that you’ve been wronged or have been unduly burdened by others.
  • Avoid toxic people.

Any others you’d like to see added to my list?  Please submit a comment below.

And an inspirational photo from my hike with Lucy yesterday.
