Life Is A Cliché

Love is blind and love hurts, because you only really hurt the ones you love.  But it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.  You win some, you lose some.  We have to remind ourselves that all is fair in love and war.  And if you truly love someone, set them free and if they come back, then you were meant to be.  If not, then take comfort in knowing that time heals all wounds.   There’s no point crying over spilled milk.       

We don’t always get what we want.  To be happy, you have to learn to want what you have.  The grass is always greener on the other side, so the key is to look at your glass being half-full rather than half-empty.  Remember that happiness is a state of mind.  Don’t keep opening up old wounds but instead, keep looking forward.  When you are caught between a rock and hard place, don’t panic.  You’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t anyway.

Life’s a bitch.  And life is definitely not a bed of roses.  But life is also a mystery and a beautiful tapestry.  You just have to do what you can, and take one day at a time.  Expect the worst but hope for the best.  Laugh…It is the best medicine!  Believe that you are where you are meant to be so try to live like there’s no tomorrow.  Throw all caution to the wind!  Live in the moment and seize the day!    

....That’s all folks!  Please don’t shoot me, I’m just the messenger!

  1. Very clever and very funny!! As I was visting your page I realized I had never "liked" you on facebook, I now solved that!!

    I don't know if I have ever told you about a networking site I joined about a month ago that I really love! VoiceBoks.com is a wonderful community of mommy bloggers and you would fit in great! If you have time stop over and see what you think! Have a great weekend!

  38. I found this today in my extensive reading. Turns out it was the post time that I read on your blog. I enjoyed reading it again. You have a wonderful way of looking at the world. How about writing another post like this one, with all the cliches about some other topic.
