Take the Bull by the Spilt Milk

By: Brian Gilleece

Let's spend 2 seconds talking about two sayings you have heard 1 million times in your life...

1.) TAKE THE BULL BY THE HORNS: To deal with a difficult situation with determination and bravery. This idiom is usually used when someone has been postponing an action for some time and finally wants or needs to resolve it.

2.) DONT CRY OVER SPILT MILK: It doesn't do any good to be unhappy about something that has already happened or that can't be helped.

I love sayings, but its interesting to read the actual words behind these sayings that sometimes loose meaning due to overuse or under value. Look at the first one, "bravery" , "determination"... Sounds like what we gotta do every day. You gotta be pretty brave and you gotta be pretty dam determined.......... Look at the second one, "cant be helped", we often times have to move on from things that are disappointing, auditions, life situations etc BUT that is also part of the job as well, focusing on moving ahead rather then what is behind.

One of the best things to remember in any difficult situation is that there has been SOMEONE on this planet in your position before! No matter how much it seems unique, It has happened...they probably have saying about it, and sometimes those sayings can be very wise, if you look inside the words of them...
