* Day 9 – Words of Wisdom

Post some words of wisdom that speaks to you.

This is tough for me. I don’t really have words of wisdom that I live by or anything. But one saying I do really love is Carpe Diem. Which means ‘to seize the day.’ I love it so much I have a tattoo of it on my wrist. It’s something I’ve had on me for so long, that sometimes I forget it’s there and to do what it says. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t often seize the day, and it’s my own fault. Some days I wake up excited for the day to come, most, meh, I want to crawl back under my quilt. But I am trying to make more of myself, and that includes going to school to make a career, writing and publishing a book I’ve held on to for so many years. I’m seizing and taking control of my life and future. Does that count?

Another one I just thought of, which I don’t think is ‘wisdomy’ and more ‘common sense’ is “Do unto others, as you want others to do unto you.” I think almost every decision and action I make in my life, I think about this. I’m very self aware and conscious of how my actions effect others. Especially in a work environment, I am always trying to be as curtious as I can to my fellow workers because I want them to treat me the same. If I am rude for any reason, I usually know after the fact, and I don’t blame them for treating me differently.

Treat others with respect, and you shall receive respect in return. (sometimes) ##
