September 7...Advice to Ignore...

            This one is difficult for me....I like to think most advice is well meaning and gives us, at the very least, something to think about...a reason to look at something from a different perspective.  I guess in general most advice that starts with...you can't...I would be suspicious of....if it is something new you want to try or learn about....go for it.  Don't let advice limit  your options, we each march to a different drummer, dance to a different tune.

  1. I agree that most advice is well meant and often gives us something to think about but in the end we have to make our own choices...and "dance to our own tune" :-) Hugs

  3. Very wise advice Abby. We do all need to make our own decisions and dance to our own beat.

  5. Great to read, Abby! :) Advice can be helpful, as it gives us other perspectives on issues, and is usually well meaning I think. In the end, we make our own decisions. What we think and do, make us who we are. I can't imagine a world made up of people who were all the same! Our differences make it all special! Great post! Many hugs,

  6. I agree, Abby...I love receiving other perspectives as people with different backgrounds will look at issues in a totally different light. I also agree that any advice I receive that starts with 'you can't...' will most likely be ignored. ;)

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

  7. Sound advice to me, don't limit yourself what you can or cannot do, if someone else tells you to. You are the only one who can decide how high the bar should be. Jump over the height you feel comfortable the bar should be.
