25/30: My Wise _____ Once Said...

Day 25 of the Blogging Challenge:
(five more days!)
what is the best advice you've ever received?

source unknown - the best token of life's wisdom out there, don't you think?

Over the almost-twenty years of my existence
(birthday month, I see you coming up!),
I've received plenty of solid advice from friends and family.

There have been the time-honored, and very necessary
words of wisdom such as: be kind, follow your dreams, moisturize,
eat your greens (still working on that one), the hardest part is always starting,
etc. etc.

There are two very particular pieces of advice, however,
that have stayed with me through the years and helped me immensely.
And those are the ones I'd like to share with you today:

1. When you taste something delicious,
hoard it and feast upon it every chance you get.

(Just kidding.)

(Not really, but let's pretend.)


#1. I forget who told me this,
but someone very, very wise said that whenever
you fail at something, or whenever you don't get what you want,
think about this:
what makes you so entitled?

and that will change your entire perspective,
make you work harder,
and/or work differently to gain what you want so badly to achieve.


#2. My middle school orchestra director, Mr. D,
once told me to never use the word "hate,"
because it's too strong of a word - he said to use
"strongly dislike" instead. I slip up every now and then,
but it has still given me perspective on what I truly love and hate -
there are very few things in the world that I actually hate (and should hate),
and it's very liberating to realize that.

What's the best advice you've ever been given?


  1. the best advice i have ever been given i guess its to live the present instead of thinking about the future.
    nice blog , i loved the first picture , very creative. Now following you on bloglovin, hope you can visit my blog and tell me what you think, and if you like follow ! it means the world

  2. Such great words to live by. My best advice when something bothers me is: will it matter 2 years from now. If not, let it go!

  3. My grandmother always tells me ,"Remember who you are." And it's something I hold on to all the time. Wise woman, that lady. ;)

  4. oh gosh, I don't think I can remember one right now but I always believe if we work hard enough then we will be rewarded.x


  5. I love both of these and need to remember them more often. The best advice I've received is 'work hard and be nice to others.' Great post! xx


your comments truly make my day! :)
thank you!
