Powerful Suggestion

What’s the single piece of advice you wish someone had given you a year — or five, or ten —  years ago?

“Fasten your seat-belts. It’s going to be an exceptionally bumpy ride. Actually, you might also want to wear body armor and a helmet.

“I think there are guys with high-powered rifles out there getting ready to shoot. Oh … one more thing. You might want to consider moving to someplace warm and cheap. Just saying.”

Thanks oh mythical Grandfather for your wise counsel. I’ll get right on it!

    *Presses LIKE multiple times* Man, I wish I had a mythical grandfather that was that wise! 😀 Good job!

      I never met either of my grandfathers … or grandmothers, either. They all died when I was too young to have memories. So I wish, too.

        Oh, I’m sorry… They probably would have said something like that, so its good you can imagine.

          Don’t feel bad. I don’t miss what I never had and this way, I can make up grandparents whenever I need good advice!

            I’m glad you said that – I sometimes miss what I never had, but then I realize life is too short to be fretting over something that will never be. Whatever the case, be prepared–you have a steady follower on your hands.

    your grandfather is right, peace and a calm mind, a fresh breeze and healthy food, it’s not the recipe for the city, but it sure works, great quote, blessings

    I’ve been trying to convince my husband of that last bit of advice – about moving somewhere warm and cheap.
