  • I have a theory about why opposites attract. I think it's because we have a deep desire to get on each other's nerves.

  • I limited my exercise to jumping to conclusions, stretching the truth and dodging my reflection.

  • Ever notice when we try to remake a person that we are seldom satisfied with the result?

  • Normal is just a setting on your clothes dryer and has nothing to do with people.

  • When people don't make eye contact, there's a reason.

  • Back is, at times, the most forward step we can take.

  • I am of the belief that if you're going to hit a vehicle, you should select one with someone inside. When you smack an empty, parked car, you pretty much rule out the chance the other person may have been at fault.

  • In the blame game, everybody loses, and nobody changes.

  • Grief was not meant to be an address but a process.

  • I used to think that because I cried so easily, I was deeply sensitive. Instead, I've learned that when someone told me a sad story, I was so full of my own unshed tears that the first tear I shed was for them, but the rest were for myself. Other people's pain kept tapping into my own unresolved issues.

  • I'm not a brave person ... except in my imagination. There I am valiant, noble, and steadfast. In reality, I whine when I get a cold.

  • I love the holidays! I hate the holidays!
