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,

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…
