    My Current Motto And Mantra

     "Id est quod es" which is Latin for "It is What it is."This reminds me that things are going to happen outside the scope of my control and I can't worry about everything.

    Never Frown.

    Mine is: Never frown, even when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile. :)

    Lessons In Life...

    Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right and forget about the ones who don't. And believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it, if it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy...

    Jealousy Is Futile

    dont waste your time on jealously, sometimes ahead, sometimes your behind, the race is long and in the end, its only with yourself. Jealously is futile.

    Well ... Maybe This One Today

    Mine can and does change over time. However these will stay.   One I just love is: "If there's only one trans-sexual in 5000 people - am I a lucky girl, or what !?!"     Another would be: "I don't mind living in a man's world as long as...

    My Motto Is...

    Why be normal?  That has been my motto for about 7 years, maybe.  I found it printed on a little yellow diamond shaped sign in my mom's closet and it just struck a cord.  It really describes me.  I am different and have no desire to be normal and...

    I have always had may definitions of what this word means but I saw this quote and it seems to sum up what love is to me ! Love is a state of being. It is a state of mind. It is a total openness to what is and what is not. Love is forgiveness and compassion, patience...

    Not Really A Motto, But...

    Agree To Disagree

    when someone doesn't agree with my views; opinions, and beliefs; I'll just "Let's agree to disagree" because we never agree on that subject, and now let's change the subject to something we both agree.
