Have you ever been given advice that you knew you should follow, but didn’t? I have. I once spent more than a years salary trying to accomplish something a wise man had advised me against.
Cousin Ken (A Georgia Cracker so I have to make allowances ), also a grad of GA. TECH, which makes it worse ; he sent me some advice. It was in the form of a FWD, but still great advice, such as:
The one above I have no problem with. I can handle it, even enjoy it. BUT:
Now, there are days I can be at peace, BUT then.
I need to fix everything (Physical and mentally). I feel compelled to give marriage advice to the kids and grand kids. I NEED to show them that debt only brings on arguments and hurt feelings, etc.
NOW I REALLY KNOW THAT THE LAST TWO (bits of advice) ARE FACTS. YOU CAN SEE ON THE FACE OF THE WORDS, THEY ARE JUST COMMON SENSE. So why can’t WE (me) as humans FOLLOW that advice?
You do not have to be a Buddhist to understand wisdom….
We also need to know and truly learn this by our own Einstein:
(You must THINK about that statement before it will make sense)
Okay, really I like good advice, and I do TRY to follow it. Some statements are pure Gold. I have found a TRUTH in the next one. And is is a fact….
So now I must confess I am going to try #2 & #3 above. (At least for 2-3 hours!)
But seriously the above is great advice, and I do wish I could follow it consistently, but I will not or cannot.
Thanks for letting me copy my friend Chatty and use a little help from friends.
This is actually our first motor home. I do not remember the year of this VW, but it was fun.
