Blogtober Day 12: Best Advice I'ver Ever Been Given

This is an amazing writing prompt, if I do say so myself. I don't know if I give off the need for advice, but I have been gifted a lot in my 29 years, haha! I love it more than I don't, so it's all good.

Some of the best advice I have ever been given:
Mom:
Eye on the prize.
Remember compassion.
Never assume you know what someone else's backyard looks like.
Write every day. I don't care if it's a grocery list, write it out.

From my guru, my poppy:
If you can look up, you can get up. Although I think this was from him hearing it via Dr. Phil, so him too.
What are you scared of? A dark room? Turn on a light. It's that easy.
Sit down at a dinner table, have conversation, and slow down when you eat.

When I left from my hometown for college the first time, my aunt who I am very close with, yelled to me as I drove away, "You don't take shit from anyone, you hear me?" As I've transitioned as a person the last eight years, living on my own and building my life, this has helped me time after time.

My Hunter:
This is my mushy shout out to my man, because whenever an occurrence occurs where I striving for something, Hunter always keeps it simple but direct saying "Be you." It calms and focuses me, and provides the boost of confidence needed in those moments. I don't think many people can go wrong with this advice. Always a good reminder to be you.



Until we meet again,

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
