A Blog A Day Challenge – Best Advice You Ever Got – Day 5

Birds of a feather flock together, right? So naturally the friends and family I have are just the brightest and smartest of them all. 

In terms of advise though, I can’t seem to recall the best piece of advise I’ve ever received – I suppose lessons happen throughout your life, and there are times when you need different pieces of advise from different people.

Some of the ones that stick out for me however:

“Good better best, never stop to rest, until your good is better and your better is best”

I think this is my favourite one ever – My Opa always said this to me and learning this little poem is one of my earliest memories. I try and apply it to most things I do. Except Excel – Excel is dumb.

“You know how you take a screen-grab on your iPhone? Do that with your eyes every few seconds, take in everything.”

My friend Amy said this to me moments before walking down the aisle. I was so focused on looking around and literally taking in everything that  only realised when I got to the end that Barry was even there. Oops.

“This too shall pass”

No idea where I first heard this , or from who – but man alive it could not be more true. From anything ranging from debt, to heartbreak to a stiff bum after squats…. it passes friends. Sit tight and be strong.

“It’s too soon to panic”

Barry the husband tells me this at-least once a week. Whether it’s to quell my nerves at the start of a race, if I’m stressed at work or if something I want done hasn’t been done like RIGHT AWAY. Wise guy (most of the time) this one. 

“Dont burn your bridges”

Unless they’re a c*nt, in which case, I’ll hand you the matches. 

And some more favourites. In picture form.
