      If life gives you lemons, make Margaritas.

        My version of the "lemon advice" is:

        "If life gives you lemons throw them back.  It can help to know you still have what it takes to throw."

      Learn to do what you are passionate about very well, then spend your life doing it well every day. Then...teach another who is passionate how to do it...and get the hell out of the way!

      my mom used to always say "The good lord never gives you more than you can handle at one time".

      my dad always said "When you feel overwhelmed by a big problem, break it out into managable chunks and deal with them according to their importance". that one has served me well. (actually, my mom's advice too)

    The longer you carry a grudge, the heavier it gets.

    Hate will slowly devour your soul.

    I honestly try to follow these and like to surround myself with positive people. I try not to let hate take up any space in my brain - which leaves more room for important things like writing, love, and where the heck I left the car keys!

        No freaking (Nice word) sun, and lots of lovely rain.
        So will do some wallpapering instead, I loose it when I do wallpaper, I mess half as many rolls up to do the job.
        I've stuck a Dado up the boring Hall and am wallpapering half of it. Looks good so far.
