Actually a few pieces of advice one from a friend: "Keep Your basket to yourself"
and the rest from my Mother, during our various mother and daughter "Frappe Fridays" as we call them she is such an influence in my life and I love her very much : "Love someone who loves you more than you love them."
and "Some people are born unhappy, you were born happy so you have to wake up every day and try to stay happy."
"Don't make yourself ill, talk about things, you can ALWAYS talk to me or Lisa" ( my sister)

Here's a couple of lovely pieces of advice:

1) Don't write anything that you would be ashamed to have read at your own funeral.

2) Disregard the above advice if you want to have fun!

Okay, I admit it - silliness ensued! :blush

My grandmother told me this many times. I believe this is why I lead such a happy life.

"Expect the best, but prepare for the worst."

This isn't exactly advice but it's worked the same way for me. When I was in college I wrote a paper on "Black Humor in Heathers." I went to a Pop Culture conference to present it and they couldn't really figure out where to put me so they put me on a death & dying panel which was strange. Anyway there was a researcher on the panel who had done a funded (by the Funeral Directors of America or something) research grant interviewing/surveying over 10,000 people about what people said and what was most helpful. What did she find? Across age, religion, race, belief in God, belief in the afterlife, sudden death vs. lingering illness. The only thing that anyone said that ever helped or made any difference was "I'm sorry for your loss." Nothing else... not "they are in a better place" or "at least they aren't suffering" or "I'm sure they are looking down on you..." or whatever. Just "I'm sorry for your loss."

Deb,

That really interested me. It makes sense. People don't want platitudes, a simple acknowledgement and gesture of caring . . . thanks for sharing that.

(forgot my own advice - got caught up in yours)

Remember to have fun - humor is an amazing source of joy and strength, not to mention the most entertaining exercise program around - second only to sex!

My mom says this everytime I am having doubts about making a right choice.

"Do what makes YOU happy, not others." and "You can't grow by doing everything right, you've got to make mistakes to learn."

Always go pee before you get on an elevator...just in case.

I have a few:

1. Never explain. You're friends won't need it, and your enemies won't believe you anyway.

2. Trust in those who offer you service, and you will find yourself in the ranks of those who have been deceived.

3. The biggest risk in life is to risk nothing.

4. Failure is a part of success.

5. Don't worry about people stealing an original idea. If it's truly original, you will have to ram it down their throats.

I don't remember where any of these came from, but they've always rung true for me.

From my Mom to me the day I turned 40:

"Invest in a really good pair of tweezers and a strong magnifying mirror. Trust me, you'll thank me later."

And she was not lying...

“If you've been crushin' on this girl for more than 6 months, it's more than a little crush. Holy crap, Williams. Pull yourself together. Ask the chick out already. You won't shut up about it.”

- My 15 year old cousin. The advice worked.

Spike: You can't see the stars, love. That's the ceiling. Also it's day.
Drusilla: I can see them. But I've named them all the same name, and there's terrible confusion.

Tell the truth and you won't have to remember what you said.

Read that in a book and the logic is flawless!
