  1. It’s been almost 20 years and I remember it often, “You are good at going through storms. Relax your arms at your side and walk calmly, securely instead of flying with the wind.”

  2. “Take care of yourself, of your body, because no one else is going to do it for you.”
    My mom said that to me once, and it’s advice that rings in my head when I start to fall into the classic mom habit of forgetting about myself.

    1. This might be one of my favorites so far. It really puts things in perspective. All problems have solutions. Spend your time solving the problem not worrying and fretting! Awesome!

      1. My Dad… I must have been about 10 or younger maybe. We were in Italy looking at some huge yachts. I still remember it as if it was yesterday. You need to know that my Dad grew up being really poor. Poor to the point where they had to worry about not being able to eat over winter. He then made a fortune through luck (meeting the right person at the right place and the right time) and hard work and dedication. He never lost touch with where he came from and what it took to get to what he was able to offer us. He always stayed down to earth.

  3. When my son was born, my mom told me not to play with him all the time. She said I needed to let him learn to entertain himself. As an only child, this has served him well (and me of course,) cause he’s 10 and never really bored!

  4. It came from my first boss after college who also turned out to be my father-in-law. He said to pretend there is a coat rack at work where you hang your problems from home when you come in to the office and then hang your work problems on it when you leave. I’ve tried to compartmentalize in this way over the years and it works effectively.
