Quotes / Philosophy:
“10% of life is made up of what happens to you. 90% of life is decided by how you react.” — Stephen Covey
“If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.” — Nora Roberts
Sometimes an opportunity missed is as good as an opportunity taken.
All things happen WHEN they happen for a reason.
Say what you mean, and mean what you say.
Make it work.
PAY IT FORWARD.
BEST cheesy, but cute pick-up lines:
(On my FB status about getting new running shoes): “Girl, I know your feet must be tired because you’ve been running through my mind all day!”
Another one I found posted to a friend’s FB status: “Are you the square root of -1? Because you can’t be real.”
