    “Will it really matter 10 years from now?” That question has kept me from pursuing many arguments through the years…winning the arguments wouldn’t matter in 10 years, but the pursuing of them certainly could.

      Spot on, Vonda! The thought of what will really matter 10 years from now ought to squeeze that fighter instinct out of me, too.

  2. “Never let the sun go down on your anger.” (Or even if the sun is already down, don’t go to bed until you have cooled off and either reconciled or agreed to a specific time for a conversation to resolve the issues)
