New Year’s Resolutions: Timeliness

Posted by – January 23, 2011

One of mine is apparently to ignore timeliness.

Still, here they are, mantras I’m repeating to myself, or orders I’m giving myself, in all their lovely glory:

  • shut up & smile
  • repeat my version of serenity prayer: changeable things / things i can’t change / leave it be
  • it’s not about you
  • breathe out, smiling

So what kinds of things do you say to yourself to keep from banging your head against the wall?

    I do bang my head on the wall, and our hallway has the indentations to prove it.
    I try and not over react to negative stuff, and as the president of LITMA I get a lot of negative stuff, I love your ” shut up and smile ” Helen, I need to do more of that.

    I’ll align with you on these, except that one shouldn’t shut up when being true to one’s nature.
