So, turns out Thomas Jefferson and I had some pretty similar ideas about how to make life a little smoother. I stumbled across this poster (available on etsy if you follow the link) and, apart from loving the design of it, since I am ALL about words, am on board with all ten of these bad boys.
Obviously, the famous "never put off until tomorrow what you can do today" is golden, but "never spend your money before you have earned it" is something I remind myself probably every day. "Never trouble another for what you can do yourself" is my life motto. I'm this close to having it stamped on my forehead.
"Pride costs more than hunger, thirst and cold" is one that I completely agree with, and could probably do with incorporating into my life a bit more. And, of course, "we seldom repent for having eaten too little" is both true and catchy, and I'm surprised that it is not all up in the Tumblr/Fitblr universe. Maybe it is.
At any rate, Thomas Jefferson sounds like a man I could've had a chat with. The guy even waited to have an affair with Sally Hemings' til after he became a widower. In History, that's stand up stuff.
Happy Monday, all.
BTW: Survived hot yoga yesterday! It wasn't as hot as I was expecting, but it was Yin, so the stretching was woooonderful. Plus, afterward my sister and I ate incredibly tasty Mexican food, in the type of teensy tiny restaurant with adjacent table of snotty lawyers (sorry, non-snotty lawyers, I know you do exist, even in New York) complaining loudly, that makes me remember why I like the city. Sometimes : )
