In this section I share my favourite sayings, quotes, and mantras — what I often call my internal “hashtags” or Kathleenisms. Memorable sayings are an integral component of my self-talk, which helps in my fight against “negative brain propaganda.” Mantras keep me grounded, productive, and “on course.” They are part of my “happiness recipe.” As one of my editors lovingly joked, “You and your sayings!” I hope you find them as motivating and useful!
