Monday Morning Musings

Trying to think of a topic this morning, and coming up blank, so decided to share some more little sayings that I found in my puzzle book: 1. Most people would rather look backward than forward, because it is easier to remember where you have been than to figure out where you are going. 2. Before you give somebody a piece of your mind, be sure you can get by with what you have left. 3. An expressway is a highway with three lanes--a right lane, a left lane, and the one you're in when you see the exit. 4. Man at bakery shop: "Inside me there's a thin person struggling to get out, but I can usually sedate him with four or five cupcakes. Do you agree with any of these? I am sure most of us can associate with all of them at one time or another. Have a wonderful Monday

Those are funny, my favorites are the second and last ones. Especially the second one, truth is told there!

Glad you liked them. Hope I don't have any experiences like the third one when we head out next week.

I agree with #1 to a point. I tend to look backwards because all the people I've loved the most in life are now gone and I"m not sure what there is for me going forward. I tend to spend a lot of time remembering people and places and things we did together and wishing it was all happening right now again.

I like to look back at the good memories, but know that I can change nothing about the past so prefer to live in the present, and anticipate the future.

@AnneEJ The memories are good to have, but we can also learn a lot from the past so that our future is a better one.

I think they all have an element of truth in them. 1) The person who remembers the "golden era" as being in the past and how bad people are today. 2) Wise saying, we give too much of our mind away - GUILTY! 3) It doesn't matter on which side of the road you drive this is true, there is always someone who will cross 9 lanes of traffic to only just make the exit. 4) Been there done that (although my poison is certainly not the cupcake, but a great German, Belgian, or Italian delicacy.

@AnneEJ Oh I did and as I said with minor modifications I think they apply to everyone on the planet.

That is so true. Sometimes I see cars here dart across two or three lanes to take an exit, putting themselves and the rest of us at risk.

Yes and sometimes I forget where I had been. And then forget where I'm going too.

Most of us can agree with that last one, I am sure.

I'm usually the person in the middle lane when the exit comes upon me

If I can't get over easily, I will go out of my way rather than take a risk.

I think a lot of us believe we have a thin person inside us and that just another donut or two will keep that thin person from coming out. Too cute.
