One-Liner Wednesday – Maybe not happy, but…

This has long been my philosophy.

If you would like to participate in this prompt, feel free to use the “One-Liner Wednesday” title in your post, and if you do, you can ping back here to help your blog get more exposure. To execute a pingback, just copy the URL in the address bar on this post, and paste it somewhere in the body of your post. Your link will show up in the comments below. Please ensure that the One-Liner Wednesday you’re pinging back to is this week’s! Otherwise, no one will likely see it but me.

NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, like Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

As with Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), if you see a pingback from someone else in my comment section, click and have a read. It’s bound to be short and sweet.

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

  11. Blessed are those who raise the bar and say, “I know it’s scary, but I see you – and all the good things about you, and it may feel like expectation, but it’s really just me saying, “Quit believing you can’t, because I believe you can – trust you can – and I’m right here beside you while you take a stab at it – win or lose or try again – ” – 🙂

  36. This is one of those things I’ve heard before, but didn’t realize it was a quote attributable to anyone. One of those “you know what they say…” things. It’s good to know who “they” is.
