      I love this quote. I give my heart and thoughts and attention to the people who are very close to me who treat me the same; otherwise, not my monkeys ;)

      One of the best proverbs ever invented. How to deal with difficult people? The answer is this line: "Not my circus, not my monkeys", which is a beautiful and witty way to say, "Those problems simply do not belong to me."

      I didn't know this was a Polish proverb. I must say this 100 times a week. It's so true though. It's not your monkey, so why worry about it? People worry about too much...and most of it IS NOT THEIR MONKEY. #itsnotmyproblemo

    More good times, less stress.

    i'm gonna keep repeating this like a mantra

    If it doesn't make you feel fabulous, don't do it!

    My dad used to say this all the time and it drove me crazy as a kid. Now I realize how powerful and liberating it is just to be able to accept

    This is great advice for everyone and especially for small business owners who never have enough time. From up North

    From this day forward, I will not waste time and energy on the insignificant.

    How I feel about my family and their immense amount of issues and drama.



    Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. Matthew 18:21-22 (KJV)


    Smile like a monkey with a new banana

    Everyday. What have you truly done today to improve yourself? You laugh but I know truly who will not be laughing in the end of your next conquest. Oh honey pls don't pull that higher than mighty shit on me. You can't fool me. You truly earned your bitch status when you got nasty with the woman who tried to help. Did u really think God would be your accomplice in your condescending abuse of the NARCs behalf? just bc you post a few Jesus quotes? Get over yourself already.

    how i feel all the time

    .AMEN & AMEN


    I can.

    to remember

    only way to go through this life..
