    Default Family Motto

    Does your family have one? What is it?

    I think I'd like to come up with one. Sounds like fun.

    Don't got one here because things are always in flux. If we did it might have something to do with change. I'll ask around.

    I do like bits and pieces of this guys family rules, they are somewhat of a motto... I think :/

    We ALL constantly remind each other “it is what it is“ and “there's no point in being miserable“.

    Not sure if these are moto's to live by ... but trying not to worry about what's already happened and realizing miserable accomplishes nothing helps every one in our house get through their moments.

    If I had to pick, I'd adopt Wil Wheaton's.

    yeah, that pretty much sums it up.

    Ours is “do whatever it takes“ & it was previously “tough it out“ - both of which dh came up with. tongue-in-cheek

    Carter often says this because he hears it so much... “Be happy with what you have“.

    I wouldnt say we have one but if I had to pick something “Shake it off“ we all always say it. Like shake off your grouchies, shake it off when you get hurt,
    ...and in that moment I swear we were infinite.

    I always enjoyed Larry David's motto for writing Seinfeld: No hugging, no learning. But I'm actually after something free of sarcasm and/or mocking.

    It is really interesting to look at example lists of attributes/qualifiers and think of all of the different families out there with different motivating values.

    Beauty
    Change
    Compassion
    Country
    Courage
    Determination
    Earth
    Fame
    Family
    Fate
    Faith
    Fire
    Forgiveness
    Friendship
    God
    Hearth
    Hope
    Joy
    Knowledge
    Light
    Life
    Love
    Memory
    Name
    Peace
    Sea
    Steadiness
    Sword
    Truth
    Vengeance
    Virtue
    Water
    Wind
    Word
    Victory

    Loves
    Calls
    Hopes
    Chose
    Helps
    Protects
