I love quotes. The right ones always seem to find you exactly when you need them. When they really speak to me, I write them down in my day planner. As the year wraps up, I’m going back to pull out what I wrote, month by month. It’s interesting to go back and think about what was going on in my life at that time, why those quotes meant something to me then and what they mean to me now.

How people treat you is their karma, how you react is yours.
Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles, it empties today of its strength.
– Mary Engelbreit
It is stronger to act than to react.
Everything in life is temporary. If things are good, enjoy it because it won’t last forever. And if things are bad, don’t worry, it won’t last forever either.
A woman is too precious to compromise her good time or her happiness because things haven’t gone her way with a man.
You can’t control how a man expresses himself. Love him anyway.
– Kristine Gasbarre, How to Love an American Man
It’s never a question of can you, but will you.
