Good Advice

Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully. 

 Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other. 

Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want. 

 When you say, I love you, mean it. 

 When you say, I'm sorry, look the person in the eye. 

Believe in love at first sight. 

Never laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much. 

Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely. 

 In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling. 

 Don't judge people by their relatives. 

Talk slowly but think quickly. 

 When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, Why do you want to know?

Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk. 

Say ’bless you' when you hear someone sneeze. 

When you lose, don't lose the lesson. 

 Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions. 

 Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship. 

When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it. 

Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice. 

Spend some time alone.

March 23rd - Love advice

Love isn't a state of perfect caring.  It is an active noun
like struggle.  To love someone is to strive to accept that person
exactly the way he or she is, right here and now.

Fred Rogers

There is so much advice about love out there that it is sometimes confusing to know just what part of it you should believe or what is best to ignore.

When it comes to love, I don’t think you can go wrong.  Love tends to lead you to make the best decisions no matter what it is that you are doing.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart.

Helen Keller

I think that the greatest gift I can offer every person in my life as well as myself is living from my heart each day.  Taking the moments as they come.

The heart is our center and reflects how we feel, who we are and our ultimate health. If we take care of our hearts, we take care of our whole being -- physically and emotionally. 

Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

To live from the heart means to live listening to what makes us feel good, vitalized, energized, balanced, rejuvenated and healthy, both physically and emotionally. It means surrounding ourselves with people who nourish our souls, build us up, and make us want to be the best we can be.

Wherever you go, go with all your heart.


Life is meant to be lived with an open and warm heart. 

A flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and man cannot live without love.

Max Muller



Lovely post today. Boy is it true when you said, "Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other."

This was absolutely lovely and so true. I did marry the man I loved to talk to. Unfortunately, I have been a widow now for 14 years. Miss him dearly.

I have fond memories.

Yes, I like your comments and everything you listed is great advice. Loving, yeah, that is the center of good advice whether taking or giving.
Of all of 'unknowns' great advice I know this should be practiced more:

When you say, I'm sorry, look the person in the eye. ******
