So here it is….day the 2nd of this challenge. On to my quote. Oh wait…first those pesky things that are part of it:
rules things they want me to follow:
- Thank the person who nominated you. – Thanks again Superman aka Billy Mac for putting this to me
- Share a post each day for three consecutive days (3 quotes total)
- Explain why you like the quote
- Nominate three bloggers to play along
So for today’s quote:
Wulfie, that’s like a bad steak. The more you chew it the bigger it gets in your mouth. Spit it out. – PawPaw Wulf
Yes…that is something one of my grandfathers once told me when I was just a cub. (OK he didn’t say Wulfie but you didn’t think I would let you trick me into a grand reveal, did you? He was also my namesake, so that only enhanced our bond. He was an amazing man, and I wish I had been able to know him much longer. He also once told me just because you are on a diet doesn’t mean you can’t look at the menu. That is another tale for another day.
I used to have trouble moving past something. This is a phrase that really helped me change my internal compass so that I was able to let go of things I could not control and focus on what I could control. It really has helped me in my career, and also in some personal matters. Some of you who have gotten to know me also might notice it’s helped me get out of dark areas quicker.
So here’s to you, Paw Paw. I learned to spit it out.
The others I now would like to hear from for their inspirational quotes are below. Hey at my age you’re lucky I can do this twice.
