    Today, mine is

    "Every morning I wake up and have two choices. I can be happy or I can be sad. I choose to be Happy!"

    don't know who said it, but it works for me!

    Maybe not a saying but: I used this alot with my teens.

    Remember if you ask the question be prepared for a answer you might not like.

    My oldest son likes to say "Tell the truth, it's easier to remember". By the way, he's a lawyer.

    I have a really good friend who at the wise old age of 8 proclaimed loudly from his wheelchair (he has severe CP) to a bunch of griping teachers... "Suck it up and deal with it!"

    I have since altered this one to: Suck it up Buttercup!

    And here's what I have stencilled over my kitchen window... my motto for life:

    When I was a kid we lived on a ranch and my dad was self-employed in construction. Needless to say, lots of plans would end up being changed. He would always say "New day, new deal." His other was, "In all things, maintain a sense of humor." They both came in handy when I was teaching school and raising my own family.

    Someone here on the board had this saying on their signature line, and I really like it:

    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow.

    I love this one from Abe Lincoln. "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt". There's another one I use with my kids. "Every time God closes a door, he opens a window".

    I say "It is what it is." all the time at work. When my nearly 40 year old assistant found out she was pregnant and asked what she was going to do. I replied, "It is what it is and what is there to do." She told me she hated that saying.....even though it was so true. :lol:

    I can't stand -it is what it is. Especially when said by my 2 fav mortgage brokers. Just makes me feel like they won't do something to help a situation.

    I always say- put your big girl panties on and deal with it.

    I used to say life sucks and then you die. but then i lost someone very close to me- he died. and life sucks without him. so I don't say that anymore.

    I love all of your sayings! I'm going to use them all this week! My favorite is "Be Good." I liken it to a shortened saying of "Treat others as you would like to be treated." My mom taught me that long ago. It works for me, even though I do need a little reminder every now and then!

    "Good Night. See you in the morning with a Happy Face!"

    Mom said it to us, we said it to ours, they said it to theirs, and when the Grands sleep over, they say it to us!

    Here's one I use on my students--well, not all of them, just a choosen few: "There is joy in obedience." :wink:

    I'll have to think longer on my favorite.
