Tuesday Tidbits #152


Welcome to the limited series, Tuesday Tidbits. A collection of quotes to provide inspiration, determination, and elevation. I hope you find something that brightens your day!


Women are desperate for men to finally understand that when they say “no”, it means “no”. They are not as staunch on the meaning when they are hearing it instead.

I have often been counseled on why the decision I made had other better options, but I have never been reprimanded for making a decision and taking action.

When your boss does not remember exactly what your responsibilities are, it is not a sign that you are unappreciated. It simply means that when they give you a task, they trust you enough to not remember.

I reserve handshakes for strangers. My friends, I hug.

I can only follow my own path. I cannot take you down mine or set you upon you own. But there is a path just for you, and my greatest wish is that you find it.

Emotional decisions rarely meet their mark.

Racism is like a fart in an elevator. We all smell it, but nobody is laying claim.


Now get out there and write something!

    I loved every single one of these! I believe “no” works both ways, though. I also hug my friends! I especially loved the one about decisions.

  4. Having been the recipient of your amazing hugs, I encourage everyone to become your friend and reap the rewards! The one about racism is a good way to assimilate how we respond to it.

  5. Fart in an Elevator sounds like a perfect book title or band name.

    There is so much power in a hug. Sadly, we were advised not to hug our students when that is precisely what many of them needed. (I broke this recommendation often because my students’ needs trumped all.)
