Growing up, we would go on family road trips and inevitably we would get lost. My brother and I would ask, “Are we lost?” and every time, my dad would answer, “Yes, but we have a full tank of gas.”
That became a running joke in the house – but one day we analyzed it – probably over-analyzed it and it started to make sense on a more philosophical level. The joke turned into a quote, “You can get lost as long as you have a full tank of gas.” Meaning – put yourself out there, explore, experiment in life and your desires will fuel your motivation and motivation will fuel your actions.
I’ve seen these all over the internet so hard to give credit to just one person – but here are a few sayings that get me through the day – especially if they come from my little ones.
- Have faith – believe
- Work hard. Be Kind. Stay Humble.
- I love you
- I want you
- Do what is right, not what is easy.
- Just breathe
- You’re a diamond dear, they can’t break you.
- Have no limits today.
- It’ll be OK.
- Be the reason someone smiles.
- Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle.
