Wise Sayings and Things to Ponder

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

It's no secret I live in Iowa. (You all get that, right?) emoticon We have a wonderful magazine called "Our Iowa" that is filled with fantastic photos, great articles and yes...wise sayings and quotes. Today I was looking through the last issue and ran across a few things that I thought I'd share with you. Most of them fall into the "for what it's worth" column and in no particular order (except for one I saved for last).

Wrinkles are hereditary. Parents get them from their children. (Wow...just sayin'...I have plenty of wrinkles!!)

Mountains can't be surmounted except by winding paths. (Does this help to explain why climbing this mountainous job of losing weight isn't a down hill job and takes many twists and turns?)

Good examples have twice the value of good advice. (SparkPeople is a great example of how this one works.)

I named my dog Five Miles so I can tell people I walk 5 miles every day. (Now there's a plan!)

Few people travel the road to success without a puncture or two. (Might explain some of the delays I've had along the way.)

From Bill Cosby comes this one: A word to the wise isn't necessary--it's the stupid ones that need advice. ('nuf said about that! LOL)

There are a lot more I could include, but I'll end with this one that came out of a fortune cookie a while back and it might be really fitting as I write this blog today: Your mouth might be moving but nobody is listening!

Now that, my friends, might be most important thing for me to remember!

Spark On!! Keep your chin up, shoulders back and as your mothers always told you...wear clean underwear!! Hugs and love and best wishes for a successful and happy day!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
