Notes to Self at the Start of 2022


  1. You’re still alive–there’s a reason for that. Get to it!

  2. “I’ve got to admit it’s getting better, oh, so much better all the time.” ~Paul McCartney (“It can’t get much worse.” ~John Lennon)

  3. “Thank u, next.” ~Ariana Grande

  4. “Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb — that’s where all the fruit is.” ~Frank Scully (paraphrased)

  5. “You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.

  6. “The beginnings and endings of all human undertakings are untidy.” ~John Galsworthy

  7. Old folks say the old stuff is best. Young folks say the new stuff is best. What if it’s just the best stuff that’s best? ~Me

  8. “Live fast healthy, die young old, and leave a good-looking biodegradable corpse.”  ~Willard Motley (‘corrected’ by Me)

  9. Have you ever fought with God or your conscience over a decision you were terrified to make? God gets that. He’s been there (Matthew 26:39).

  10. “Hate the sin, love the sinner” is good advice, but always apply it to yourself first (see Matthew 7:5).

  11. Ironically, the only continent that has no ants is Antarctica. ~Me

  12. “There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” ~C.S. Lewis

  9. Interesting point about Antarctica. Speaking of irony, “Why do they call someone who is deceased ‘the late ____’? They may not have reached heaven early, but they got there before we did.” (-me)

    I opened my current quote journal to a random page, just to see if another Note-to-Self presented itself, and it did! “Do not be angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be”–Thomas a Kempis. My source for this bit of wisdom? Your blog–October 3, 2019!! : )
