Another one I say all the time is "It always happens in three's" As I am writing this I am listening to my washing machine make a horrible churning noise and a leak under my kitchen sink has ruined my laminate floor. OK so I am wondering what the third thing will be. And if the third thing turns into a forth, does the forth start a new cycle of three's so I can look forward to two more things. YIKES this could be really bad.
"Bite the bullet" is one that we are all doing these days with our rough economy. We sometimes envy those people who are "Born with a silver spoon in their mouth" and go through life without a money care in the world. Nice but not realistic for me anyway.
"Absence makes the heart grow fonder" that certainly true for me when I give up sweets. I know they are bad for me but boy do I love them even more when they have been gone for awhile. Yes I am shallow but I love my cupcakes.
"Don't count your chickens before they hatch" Wow I do this one all the time. I am a thinker and a worrier. I am always anticipating an outcome bad or good before it happens. I try not too but I cannot seem to stop my mind from going to the future.
So today I am going to try and "Keep my chin up" and "Let sleeping dogs lie" while I "Let well enough alone". I guess we'll see how that goes since "Seeing is believing".
Can you think of any that you use all the time.
