My New Motto


Look! Look at this! I ordered one just like it, though in a more burgundy/browish hue.


This was a poster designed during WWII in England. I don't think it was ever actually distributed. It was recently discovered and is making a big comeback in many different colors. I love it so much. Whenever I feel myself getting agitated, worried, stressed, anxious, annoyed.....I just say this to myself. And it totally works. It is magic.

Was it Southern Living? Because I think that is where I first saw it!

Almost anything is preferable to WW II London. . .

. . .even Type A mothering ;-)

I keep debating if I am going to buy one of these! I love it.

Must order me one.

Bonnie...I think that is part of why it WORKS for me. I just think about how at least I'm not in London in WW2!

Does this replace the Sharp motto??

When in trouble, when in doubt
Run in circles, scream and shout
Hit your head against the wall
Make it hell for one and all!

Bevo...this appears to be the antithesis of that motto. I'm fighting my natural instincts though...

I kind of don't like the color on mine. I like this one better......I may have to buy a second one. (That isn't keeping very calm and carrying on, is it?)
