The best advice

What's the best advice you've ever recieved?

I don't know if this advice came from one of those sit down conversations where your discussing with your parents all of life's up and downs. But I do remember my parents saying to me, "well what do you think?" They never really ever told me after a certain age what I should do, but what did I think. This became really some of the best unspoken advice. It taught me to believe in myself and to rely on, "what did I think? I ask myself this question to this day when making big decisions. It's never what will other's think of me, will I be popular or will this make me friends. I always come back to the same sage advice, what do I think. This advice has never steered me wrong. I've always been able to live with the decisions I make because I trust myself to do what is right for me and for other's that may be affected.

Please tell me what's the best advice you've been given?


  1. Well Les there is the one about yellow snow that is pretty good, but the best for me was taught to me by grandpa Benson. It is that love for family has to be unconditional with no stipulations. It just has to be.

  2. The best advice I ever received was from a bartender from TGIFridays, Michelle Freeman. I had just got done telling Michelle about all the stresses in my life. I dont recall what they were, but I do remember there were plenty. I finished my dramatic saga by saying, "...but I don't know!?" She looked me dead in the eye and said, "B.S., you always know. You sometimes don't like your answer, but you always know what to do."

  3. That is so good and so true. Thank you both for sharing.
