Ahhhh... The wise advise giver!
I really can't remember if I have mentioned this before. And, if I have? It is obviously time for a refresher! Ha!
So, I am an AMAZING advice giver!!! And, I know it!
I have this patience and perspective (that I am always talking about needing!) when listening to other peoples' stories. Well, lately, it happens I've run in to a lot of people who don't have any trouble mentioning... "...YOU ARE SO GREAT AT GIVING ADVICE! WHAT'S YOUR STORY??? HOW DO YOU APPLY THIS?"
Do they call this technique "putting one's foot in one's mouth"?!?!?!?!
Anyway, I know that I have mentioned that I have many mini-revelations while writing this blog. Hence the avoiding writing anything for a couple of months. Well, the other day I GAVE THE MOST INCREDIBLE ADVICE! I mean to tell ya! I almost wanted to pat myself on the back! And then my lightbulb burst! Here is the lightbulb bursting advice I gave:
"Why don't you write down the story (problem/whatever)... Then, I will read it back to you! This way it will come from my lips... and YOU love me! So, YOU can tell me YOUR first reaction and what YOU would do 'if YOU were me'."
And again, why I have not written much in the past couple of months.
When things spill out of my fingers on to this keyboard... Strangely, I am convicted to take my own advice! And, lately, I have been fluctuating between WILLING & WILLFUL so quickly it was making me dizzy! And my dizzy makes other people sick.
This VERY moment.
This is a new moment.

Fill in your own blank.
I'll fill in mine.
Try to take care of yourselves. I promise I will do the same.
