The world according to G (2)


Just because you would do that doesn’t mean others will.

Expect nothing then you won’t be disappointed.

Others have the right to say ‘no’, so do you.

No need to justify.

Be comfortable in your own skin.

Nobody knows you better than yourself.

Plans are for fools.

Watch where you are going and I don’t mean just literally.

Kind people do exist.

If we could wear a plaster cast round our heart and head people would be more sympathetic.

The pain never goes away you just learn to live with it.

Hopelessness is worse than cancer.

Once a parent always one.

Your relationship with your child outweighs that of your spouse/lover.

Good health is Queen.

Don’t sell your soul to the devil for 30 pieces of silver.

Dignity in poverty.

Clear conscience is priceless.

Quit giving yourself a hard time.

You did what you thought best at the time.

Nobody has a crystal ball.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

Principles are important but be flexible. 

Think of the big picture.

Don’t delude yourself about your significance.

Nobody cares, no, not really, so why fret?

Quit worrying about what others might think and start living.

Make up for lost time grieving and crying.

What is lost cannot return but something else unexpected may turn up.

We need very little to survive and be happy.

Trappings and constant crave for more weigh us down.

There is always someone worse off.

The sun will rise and set whether you are happy or not so you might as well be.

Be honest at least with yourself.

Always say please and thank you, it’s free.

Love is risky.

Invest in a powerful magnifying glass if you have been hurt but want to dip your toe in the water.

Just when you think it is safe to go back in it probably isn’t.

Trust no one, not even yourself cos you can lose your mind.

Don’t spend every penny and absolutely not what you don’t have.

If you have good friends you are rich beyond measure.

Don’t envy the wealthy they don’t know what they are going through.

If you are poor at least you know your partner wants to be with you.

Chill.  It really isn’t that important.
