Chanty’s Quotes – 2017

I couldn’t decide on a topic to write about this week, so I went over to my page and read up on some of my old posts. I do this from time to time to check whether I still feel the same way as I did when writing the article. But also to look for errors and closure on a topic. I found something more valuable than errors this time. I found a range of good quotes coming from the one and only me!! That’s when I decided to select certain lines in my older blog posts that I feel could inspire others and set them apart. It’s almost like a compilation of my thoughts or a summary of what I think of life!! I’m hoping to add to this as time goes by and as new posts get added. Just thinking how ironic it is…when we think there is nothing for us to do, then by sitting back for just a moment we come up with something wonderful. So here it goes!!

  • “You can either let the problem control you and be anxious about it or you can control the problem from a more stable point of view. Again I will say our problems can only hurt us as much as we allow it to.”

  • “So now we arrange special evenings away from home for just the two of us, because for our family to be strong in its entirety it has to begin with the two people that started it all.”
