Good Motto to Live By

My motto in life has pretty much been "how hard can it be?". This usually comes out of my mouth when I'm faced with a challenge I've not dealt with before...something I'm not sure I have the confidence to do...or something I'm shit scared of attempting.

I read this motto today, and although it's a lot more difficult to memorise, and you can't just throw it out there in one breath, I loved it anyway.

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to
skid in sideways, Champagne in one hand - strawberries in the other,
body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO - What a
Ride!"


Isn't that fantastic??!

The other saying that we have in this household is when either myself or the children are going away for some time (could be a couple of days, a week, a month, you get the picture). I've said this to the boys since they were at least about 4 years old, so it's well worn now. When 15 recently went to Japan I wrote it in the notebook I knew he was going to use on a daily basis.

"Wherever you go, no matter how far, my love is with you, wherever you are"

Anyone out there care to share a motto or saying with me, that they particularly like or live by? Let's hear it!
