This is an easy one as I have it tattooed on my wrist. Well actually thinking about it I have two favourite quotes.
The first is:
Most people attribute it to Gandhi however he didn’t actually say it quite like that. But I feel that it is a good motto to live life by. To me it’s very simple:
- Don’t complain about things you don’t like, change them
- Don’t judge others based on their actions but focus on your own
- The only person who can control your destiny is you
Obviously these are all easier said than done but I would like to think that by having it on my wrist as a constant reminder that prompts me to consider my actions. I also would like to bring Atty up to understand that he should take control of his own life and not let others bring him down.
Which brings me onto my second favourite quote that I have only recently come across.
Lions don’t lose sleep over the opinion of sheep.
This again reminds me not to let what others think or feel stand in the way of doing what I want to do. As long as i’m not hurting anyone by going my own way then i’m happy. I wouldn’t be writing this blog if I worried what others think. Although it does stop me from sharing with my ‘real life’ friends. I must work on that!
This is a short and sweet post tonight as Atty is refusing to sleep so i’m writing this quick while Mr K has a go at soothing him.
Speak to you tomorrow!
