    • My mom taught my sister and I to take responsibility for our actions, be a genuine person and don’t give up.  I honestly can’t remember any bad advice from her as she raised us alone and was upbeat through tough times.

    • My father gave excellent advice...and plenty of it.  It’s funny how, when asked for a specific favorite, i stumble.  So, instead, i will share a few of the sage bits I have used the most in my life.

      • Pay yourself first (i.e. commit to how much you will save from each paycheck and do that before you pay/spend any more).
      • Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.  Hating someone is like you drinking the poison and waiting for the other person to die from it.  
      • Simply because you aren’t capable of something doesn’t mean others aren’t capable of it (i.e. cheating, stealing, etc).

      The only think i can think of that would possibly qualify as “bad advice” is...“enjoy your youth...they are the best years of your life!”  I think this is simply not true.  While my youth may have been the most carefree years of my life, they were far from the best years of my life!

    • My Dad always told me to “keep my house in order.” It took me a long time to realize that he wasn’t talking about housekeeping. He was advising me to pay my bils, care for y kids, and to maintain a close relationship with God.  My Dad also told me that if I ever got pulled over for speeding that I should clutch my stomach and tell the officer I had a wicked case of the runs.  It works every time!

      The worst advice I was ever given by a parent was from my mother, when she was teaching me how to drive. These were her Road Rules:
      1. Do NOT slow down around corners. Speed up!
      2. Don’t waste time looking over your shoulder before you change lanes. Signal and move - those other suckers will get out of the way.

      XOXO.

    • Well, the one thing my mother said that I didn’t get was, “You can’t have your cake and eat it too“. I really couldn’t figure out why we’d have cake and not eat it? LOL

    • the best advice that my Mother gave to me is that not everyone is supposed to be your friend and that not ever friend is meant to be someone that you confide in. Confidence and trust is earned
