I’ve received a lot of advice in my life. Some good, and well, some not very good. I’ve received advice from fabulous souls that may not even remember giving me the profound wisdom. Some may not even know their words impacted me at all. To them, I’m simply a stranger that was in the right place doing the right thing at the exact right time.
Here is a list of my favorite nuggets I’ve collected over the years. I’ll continue to add to the list as these wise words flow back to me. I can’t take credit for the wisdom, but I can take credit for doing something with it…today that something is sharing it with you.
“Sweetheart, you’re a bird who is meant to fly. Don’t let anyone cut your wings and put you in a cage.” – my Dad
“Sweetheart, the world goes around on two things: money and bullshit. You have to learn how to make it, spend it and sling it!” – my Dad (I was given this advice at the ripe age of eight!)
“There’s no such thing as failure, only feedback” – Jeremiah Rangel (Passed on from his teachers.)
“Boundaries love! Work will never love you back.” – unknown
“The beauty of the rose is not in the color of its petal, but in the prick of its thorn.” – my Dad
“Divine Spirit, Where would you have me go? What would you have me do? What would you have me say? And to whom?” – Gabrielle Bernstein
“This too shall pass.” – my Mom
“Everything happens for a reason.” – my Mom
“What are you going to remember in five years? Do that.” – Louise Minor
“Sometimes you gotta ask yourself, Is this an odd thing or a God thing.” – Nick, a friend from years back.
“Que será, será.”- me (when I was a small child) Apparently I used to walk around saying this when I was a kid. My Mom had no idea who or where I got it from, but it stuck with me and continues to be useful.
What’s your favorite advice?
