Best Advice Ever
Today on The Morning Blend we asked viewers to share the best piece of advice they've ever received. It could be advice about love, pregnancy, parenting, life -- whatever comes to mind. I think one of the best things I ever heard was, "No is the most powerful word in the English language, so use it"!
Turns out that was great advice because I do use it. In fact, I say no more now than ever. Something about the word "no" just clicked with me after turning 40. I'm much better at saying no to things I don't really want to do -- and "yes" to only the things that are either really good for me or that I really want to be doing.
Here are just a few others to get you thinking. Maybe you haven't heard these before. Enjoy and please, share your best advice!
