Take It From Me

When I was younger, I hardly ever believed any of the advice people gave me. Wait, did I say younger...well it's still kinda true. I'm just one of those hard headed, stubborn people and I only hear what I want to.

But that never stops me from giving advice. I give advice like it's nobody's business. And people are always asking me for it.

When I saw that one of my new favorite reads, Melissa at Making Melissa was hosting a link-up called "Take It From Me" I knew I had to link up. It's a great idea!

Take it from me when I say...

Don't stay in a relationship just because there is a child involved. I know that's it a good idea to be together for the kids, but if you aren't happy, don't suffer. Kids know that kinda thing. And they deserve better than two parents that are miserable and suffering.

If you're buying a car, don't buy it from somebody you know. You'll feel like they ripped you off when something breaks on it. Then you'll resent them. It isn't fun.

Always remember, tomorrow will probably be better. It's not a shitty life, it's a shitty day.

If you don't know what you want to do with the rest of your life, it's ok. If you hate your job, find a new one. If you're in college and you've tried every major they have, there's nothing wrong with that. You'll figure it out.

If you're in debt with some credit cards, don't go shopping. I know that at times it'll be the only thing to make you feel better, but when you get your statement, you won't feel better again. Learn what a spending freeze feels like. They really suck.

When you're happy, share it with the world. If you're having a great day, send some of that greatness someone else's way. Just a smile is all it takes. Don't let anyway take the happy from you.

When all else fails, take a nap.
