Favorite Quote: On Being Looked Over


Quote:
I believe that it's better to be looked over than it is to be overlooked.

Who Said It:
Mae West

My Thoughts:
This reminds me of some of the best advice I was ever given. Never be offended when you are looked over because the day will come when no one will look.

How true....how discouraging is...."She really let herself go" So, we have to keep it up and not let yourself ....go.....Do that....and looking over still will happen!

There are too many great Mae West quotes to pick just one but this is a personal fave...

"When I'm good, I'm very good. When I'm bad, I'm better."

That is so true. Hmmm, note to self, don't go ape shit when people give me that head to toe look. Instead, smile.

Lesson learned grasshopper, thank you!

Oh I agree! I haven't stopped getting looks yet . . . Although I can't tell if it's because they think I'm crazy or not . . . ;)

I caught my mom looking at some guy when I was around 10. I asked her how she could do that and she said it's when she stops looking that i should worry. Advise I have taken to heart.

And to go along with that quote: It doesn't matter if people are talking good or bad of you...as long as they're still talking!

I remember my mother in her 80s commenting on the legs of the male tennis players!

It's when you are over looked that you start to worry.
