Is there any motto you live by? There are a few I live by: 1.) things are never so bad that they couldnt be even worse 2.) what doesnt kill me, makes me stronger. Im sure there are a few more I just cant remember them now lol. What is your life's motto?

There are two main mottos I try to live by the first being "what goes around comes around" meaning that if someone does something bad they will get their comupance in the future...the same applies if you do something good as something normally happends in the future to reward you. The second being "pride comes before a fall" meaning don't get too over confident too soon.

Karma, yes we have to consider that too. Im not familiar with the second one but sounds ok too.

I have a few: 1)Treat others well and they will do the same to you. 2)Always do your best, even if it's something you really don't want to do. 3)DO better every day 4)Do what you love

the first one my mother taught me 1) When in doubt, take the safe route (like if you arent sure whether mom would let you eat the chocolate or not, dont eat it, just to be safe) 2) the worst comes first (as in earn the good part...or like take the bad end of something before takeing the good end, that way you can really enjoy the good end) so yeah :P

Taking a safe route is a good advice, though I never follow it...Im stubrn and usually want to do things my way and if that means walking through the wall thats what I'll do hehe

There are a lot of things to live by...love, life, etc. Here are some that affect my everyday life: 001. There's one thing you can give and still keep: your word, 002. Give back to those you take from, 003. There's always someone who has it worse than you, 004. What goes around comes around, 005. If there's an opportunity, take it - you only have one life. 006. There's a first time for everything, try it.

Quite a few :) I like the third one, even if it sounds a bit mean it can be quite comforting knowing you're not alone in this and its not the worse thing that can happen.

Live today, like there is no tomorrow. For me that means that yesterday is gone, whatever happened or didn't happen there's nothing I can do it about it. Tomorrow is not promised. Today is all that I have to be the best mother, sister, aunt, employer and friend etc. that I can be.

These are some I use: 1. Nothing is impossible. 2. Things could be much worser 3. If life throws you a lemon, make lemonade!

Nothing is impossible...yeah that one I like too. Everything can be done, maybe just not the way we're doing it...so from a different approach everything is possible.
