I thought it could be fun to post 30 sayings to live by that often go through my head when I am pondering how to improve myself or help others be awesome. Believe it or not, most of my thoughts are one-liners. Perhaps I watched too many 80’s action hero movies when I was young.
The key to getting the most out of this post is spending some time pondering each one. Not all of them are straightforward and serious. Much of my day is pondering sarcastic and ironic remarks others or I make. This means if you read one and it seems obviously false, just think about it a little longer.
These are my sayings, so take them with a grain of salt.
