May “Take Your Own Advice” month….

Monday, May 21, 2012

I’m officially declaring May 2012 “TAKE YOUR OWN ADVICE MONTH”

When someone huddles and asks for support do you ask them what kind of support they need. Or are you full of advice?

“We give advice by the bucket, but take it by the grain.”~ W. R. Alger

“Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't.” ~Erica Jong

“Some people like my advice so much that they frame it upon the wall instead of using it.” ~Gordon R. Dickson

We even look to nature for advice.

Advice From A River .... Go with the flow~ lmmerse yourself in nature~ Slow down and meander~ Go around the obstacles~ Be thoughtful of those downstream~ Stay current~ The beauty is in the journey.

BUT... “Nobody can give you wiser advice than yourself.” ~Cicero

So here’s a bit of advice from me to me this month… “Take your own damn advice and start moving forward!”

SPARK ON….. And remember the best is yet to come!!! emoticon

    Linda I think we all do that and it is like we close our ears and don't follow what we are telling others to do. We all know what we should do and be doing but it is easier to just go with the flow instead of putting a little effort in doing something healthy for ourselves. I just told my hubby I have been staying at this same weight forever, so I need to put some effort into taking off the rest of the weight I want to loose.

Hope you have a great day. Colleen

    The best advice you can take.
Very humorous and I though of how often I give MY advice.
You know sometimes people say they need advice, but don't say about what.
Have a fantastic week.
