I’ve been blessed to have so many amazing people in my life that have bestowed so much wisdom. I didn’t always listen to their advice right away, but their words always echoed whenever I was faced with any of the matter that they spoke of. Many of their conversations or examples saved me from harm, heartache, and financial ruin. And for that, I am eternally grateful. My favorite aspect of learning from them is when they have the simplest and cutest sayings for some of the most complex life lessons. For example, one of my mentors loves to say, “Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water”... It’s a simple saying that basically means don’t ruin an entire opportunity because of one negative aspect, or don’t throw away an entire relationship because of one argument, or don’t quit your day job because you don’t like it when it’s paying the bills and keeping a roof over your head. Wait until you have something else lined up before you jump out the window. 🤷🏽♀️🙄 My grandmother would always say, “People only want to help those who help themselves.” That’s pretty self-explanatory. My mother @starspreferbre favorite thing to say is, “A closed mouth won’t get fed.” In other words if you don’t ask for what you want out of life and in relationships, you won’t get what you feel you truly deserve, so speak up! She also reminds me that in life you have to “Let people be.” Don’t try to make them who you want them to be or get mad when they don’t measure up to your expectations... And one of my favorite people who’s given me so much wisdom on self love and navigating familial issues, and the balance of being a strong leader and a humble follower, and marriage, and the list goes on and on... is @cejohn_. Your voice echos in my mind more than you know. I often ask myself, “What would ‘Goddy’ do, or what would she say?” Your lessons come up in some of my most difficult conversations and I’m so grateful to you all! You all make me a better!
