5 cliches to use to make the best of a situation:

Rome wasn't built in a day

have the last laugh

he's on a roll

winning is contagious

this too, shall pass

at least it was a very interesting experience

the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak

You made your bed, now sleep in it.

if it doesn't kill me, it makes me stronger

Every cloud has a silver linning

making a bad decision is better then making no decision at all

Don't count your eggs before they've hatched

An apple a day helps keeps the doctor away.

to all intents and purposes

finders keepers losers weepers

stream of consciousness

the best of all possible worlds

get a kick (out of something)

ships that pass in the night

a thing of beauty is a joy forever

you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink

at this point in time

a charmed life

whatever floats your boat

familiarity breeds contempt

at least it was a very interesting experience

the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak

you make your own breaks

Let your conscience be your guide

pillar of the establishment

hear no evil

old habits die hard

waste not want not

child of nature

get a hold of yourself

put the hammer down

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush

beauty is in the eye of the beholder

not to mince matters

lady luck was smiling on me

stick your neck out

needle in a haystack

a whale of a good time

clear the air

faint heart never won fair maiden

Tell me who your friends are and I'll tell you who you are

start from scratch

should have stayed in bed

don't worry be happy

don't put all your eggs in one basket

don't count your chickens before they hatch

Better to have and not need than to need and not have

never look a gift horse in the mouth

the best thing since sliced bread

have a tiger by the tail

The play's the thing

Look before you leap.

as luck would have it

stick your neck out

bide your time

act the fool

winners never quit and quitters never win
