I agree - deep down you already know what you want. I can't think of any other sayings, but as soon as I hit "publish" I know I'll probably come up with ten of them.
I couldn't think of any off the top of my head either, but I know there are a ton that I know and like. :)
I've never tried flipping a coin when I'm undecided. I'll remember this for the next indecision episode. Have a great weekend.
You have a great weekend too. :)
Well.....my father-in-law once said, "I wish I had his land and he had a feather up his a$$, then we'd both be tickled"...I about peed my pants laughing. I'd never heard that one before, but I never forgot it!
My grandfather was an endless source of such sayings. ;) I never heard that one though.
My husband often tells me "best is the enemy of good", meaning I'm being a perfectionist about something and it is just fine the way it is!!! Hummm….. Laura
There are a few things I do where such a saying would apply also. ;)
I have flipped a coin... I only do it when I don't care what the out come will be.
My grandpa had a coin w/heads on both sides. He'd flip that when he did care about the outcome. ;) Thanks for the visit. :)
My late aunt's pearls of wisdom - Never tell an unpleasant truth or pleasant untruth.
I haven't heard it, but it's a good one. :)
I have many that are engrained in y head, but hindsight is 20/20 comes to mind first this morning. Agreed, we already know what we want, just looking for a little validation I suppose
Hindsight really is 20/20. :)
How about the old... Find a penny pick it up, all day long you'll have good luck. Not TRUE!!!
Be nice if it was... ;)
I like "a stitch in time saves nine." -- So often we can save ourselves a lot of aggravation and time if we do a little preventive maintenance.God bless,Laurie
This one makes perfect sense now that I'm grown, but as a child I used to repeat it to myself & wonder what it meant, lol.
I agree!!!! It's always hard to just immediately go with your gut.
My little one does 'eeny meeny' and if it's not going to land on the one he really wants, he switches up the spots, lol.
I have never thought of it this way but I do believe that you're absolutely right :)
It's a silly thing, I know, but I bet it could many times be true. :)
My brain isn't functioning today, but I am sure I have a billion sayings I just can't think of. I agree with Terry. I never get lucky with those darn pennies I pick up!
I used to pick up any penny, then I heard it was heads up only, grr. So that's why my luck never panned out on the face-down ones. ;)
Or when the coin flips one way, you realize that you really wanted the other, so you go for it.http://joycelansky.blogspot.com
True 'dat. :)
~Life IS Grand~
It is, it is. My mom used to say this one all of the time. This and 'ain't that grand?' :)
Can't think, I ate too much for lunch! But I liked the post and the comments! Have a good day!
Lunch is better than thinking of old sayings. :)

Thanks for having me at your hop. :)
Something my granny used to say quite frequently, and I agree with, is 'what you hear the other person saying says more about what you are thinking than what they are'.
I've seen this in action. ;)
Oh yes agreed!
I just saw your leprechaun giveaway. Cute!
i completely agree with you! i always liked "the best things in life aren't things." :)i hope you and your family are having a sweet weekend. <3<3<3maria
I like that one a lot too. I hope you're having a good week too. :)
I think mine is one door closes and another one opens and my Dads favourite it came to pass in other words no matter what's happening good or bad shall pass and it really is true
Both are true, and the first one delightfully so.
I am so indecisive, so I think I'll have to start flipping a coin when I try to make a decision! I love old sayings. One of my favorites is an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I totally believe it!
I totally believe it too. Now if I could get the kids to believe it... ;)
My friend's mum always says that "one person can't help everyone but everyone can help one person". I think that is a nice thought:)
That is a really nice thought.
Dr. Suess said - "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." Not sure if it's an old saying, but I love that quote! ;)
Some quotes never get old, that's one of them. :)
One of my favs..."In the end, it's not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments that took your breath away."
Words to live by. :)
I think they're all great. I can't think of one right now... but I'm sure I will shortly!Have a great Saturday!
Thank you, you too. :)
My husband and I have started doing this with silly things like what to cook for dinner and it really does work!!Thank you for linking up to Raising Imperfection! Make sure to check back on Friday to see if you were featured.Leslie
Thanks for the visit, Leslie.
"This too will pass" I fall back on that one all the time for different situations, and any situation you are in whether good or bad, it will pass eventually. Returning the follow from the blog hop!
It does, you are right about that...good or bad. :)Thanks for the follow back.
It's true because if the head wasn't for that which you wanted most, disappointment would have tagged on like a 2ton iceberg! My thought: A little prayer goes a long way. I was having a most terrible day. I had had my morning devotion that morning. And I thought, imagine if I didn't pray at all. What would this day be like! But I ultimately felt that God was battling for me. I just felt it. And it honestly seems like the days I pray, turns out to be the hardest ones. Haha.
Colette, I love when you're in the house! ! :)
I like, life is all about timing, and just keep on keepin' on. Some of the negative ones are funny like, life is a b___ and then you die. And You can't shine sh_______ ;)
I forgot that last one, haven't heard it since I was a kid. My grandfather would say it, and I never knew what it meant. Now that I'm grown I can definitely say it's a true one. ;)
Time flies! With having kids it does!
It really does!
Yes, deep down, I think we know what we want. But you know, your post reminded me of some decisions I've been trying to make and how, upon reflection, I know what I need/want to do. :)
Little triggers do sometimes motivate big change, I like when that happens. :)
I like your old sayings :) Thanks for visiting pret-a-vivre.com
