Words of "Wisdom" from an Overactive Mind Part II

Check out part I here. This has been compiled since February of this year, I don't think i've added anything to this since then, but i just never posted it. 99% are thoughts that have passed through my head, usually when i was studying, a couple are from Joel Osteen and he was credited for it. A lot of it was borne out of stuff i was dealing with at the time. Let me know which ones you like.
  1. Never say Never. Just don’t. Life is full of too many uncertainties and curve balls. You really never know.
  2. It’s easy to sit and give advice when you are on the other side. Let’s see how well you take your own advice when your emotions are involved. It’s the most difficult thing in the world.
  3. Sometimes, you just have to say fuck it.
  4. When your back is against the wall, the only thing left to do is to stand and fight.
  5. Men value things they have to work hard for. It’s the simple and plain truth.
  6. There are some people in life that you are just not going to “like” not matter how hard they try or you try. It’s not your fault or their fault. It’s the fault of chemistry or the lack of it.
  7. We are all human but not everyone is 100% human. Some people are just animals. Be especially careful of wolves in sheep’s clothing.
  8. Sometimes God is trying to save you and you don’t even know it. Let him.
  9. Stop struggling so hard to hold on to something that is not yours. You’ll look back someday and thank God for not letting you have that thing you really wanted at the time because it would have been a disaster.
  10. Chemistry: You either have it or you don’t.
  11. That “bad” thing you are afraid to let happen, could turn out to be not so bad after all.
  12. You are never too old to learn something new about yourself.
  13. I cannot be a friend to you more than you are a friend to me. Life is give and take.
  14. It’s never too late to turn back. Every day is a new beginning and every breath is a chance to start afresh.
  15. Don’t be afraid to let go. Nobody is indispensable, including you.
  16. People will treat you the way you allow them to treat you.
  17. If he hits you once, he’ll hit you again.
  18. Sometimes it helps to play it close to your chest and not show your hand.
  19. Let your actions show me things your words will never say.
  20. We all want to be happy, but don’t trample over people while you are trying to find/get to your happiness.
  21. Be thankful for blessings in disguise
  22. Speak less and listen more.
  23. If it doesn’t make sense, 9 out of 10 times, it’s a lie.
  24. People WILL lie to you, sometimes for no reason.
  25. You will never have all the answers. Sometimes, you just have to put it in your “I don’t understand it” file and move on. – Joel Osteen
  26. Let go of the past and believe that God has planted a seed with that experience for better things to come.
  27. He has you in the palm of his hand and when you have reached your limit and can no longer walk, he’ll carry you. Trust and believe.
  28. You don’t try to reason with crazy.
  29. Not everyone deserves the benefit of doubt. Trust your instincts and never downplay your intelligence or gut feeling.
  30. Sometimes the truth is right there, staring at you in the face but you can’t see it. Take the time to stop and think.
  31. Never underestimate the healing power of time.
  32. In relationships, operating from a place of need, puts you in a position of weakness.
  33. Nobody can know you more than you know yourself.
  34. Integrity- You either have it or you don’t.
  35. The Golden rule always applies. Do unto others as you would like them to do to you. There’s a reason it’s called the golden rule.
  36. Don’t put a question mark where God has put a period – Joel Osteen
  37. It’s okay to really want to believe in Karma even though you secretly have doubts because sometimes that’s all you’ve got
  38. Don’t let the past hold you hostage. 
  39.  What you are searching for could be right there all along.  
  40. You can never receive with hands that are closed. Let go of that relationship that you are struggling to hold on to so your hands can be free to receive the one that was meant for you. 


  1. I like them all BUT 38, 3, 7, 14, 19 and 25 are my favs in no particular order.

    You will finish strong in Jesus name. Amen.

  2. I never say never. All making sense but I'm feeling 7,19,22, 24, 29 & 34

  3. 32.In relationships, operating from a place of need, puts you in a position of weakness.

    This is very true! Its almost the same thing as one of my favourite mantras- "Never negotiate on an empty stomach" or else you will give in too easily out of desperation and end up being taken advantage of.

  4. i love these and i copied them to my computer hope that's ok i need something like this to refer to from time to time. Thanks

  5. a lot of these words are take home to mama lol thank you!
