Day 2464: What are the words that you live by?

Yesterday, at a Boston performance of the wonderful musical Choir Boy, I saw this:


Audience members (including me) responded to that invitation to share the words that we live by, by posting  sticky notes:







Can you spot the words I live by among all those words?


Do you see any words to live by in my other photos from yesterday?













What are the words that YOU live by?


Here  is a Rosh Hashana song ….

… and here’s “Rockin’ Jerusalem” from  Choir Boys.


Two of the words I live by, every day, are “Thank You,.” Thank you for helping me create two thousand and five hundred daily blog posts with (I hope) some words to live by.

  1. Thank you Ann! “Find your Middle Ground” … of course 😉

  2. Leave the moment at least a little better than it was before I was in it, Ann.
    I think I know which sticky was yours, my friend, and you surely do get the most out of each of your days.

  3. mine is ‘go.’

  4. I would have written, “Love people unconditionally.”

    Thanks for this wonderful post. I enjoyed reading all of the notes.

  5. “Let you light so shine before men that they may see your good works.”

  6. Words themselves are remarkable things, capable of expressing anything, and I feel we’re very lucky to have them. The question of words to live by reminds me of a philosophy class where the final exam was one word: “Why?” The person who aced the test (not me) simply wrote, “Why not?”
    What I’d most like to express now to you and to everyone, though, is Shanah tovah um’tukah!

    My words, are,” it doesn’t cost anything to be nice” and ” i’ll make it|

  8. I would say: Remember to live and enjoy every day, one day it might be too late.

  9. I love those colorful crates! They’re delightful. I think your post-it may be the one that says, “Love, Kindness and Respect.” If that’s not yours, it is how you do live your life and how I think of you! 🙂

    • You’re delightful, Debra! It takes one person who lives their life with love, kindness, and respect to know another one. (And my post-it is the one that says “Live every day as if it’s your last.” )

  10. “Don’t be judgemental” those are my words to live by
