“I always pass
on good advice,
it is the only thing
to do with it,
It is never
of any use to oneself.”
~ Oscar Wilde
It is a pleasure to give advice, humiliating to need it,
normal to ignore it.
Want to make the life of a writer difficult, ask them to write
an advice column, using only the things they themselves do.
“Advice is what we ask for when we already
know the answer but wish we didn’t.” ~ Erica Jong
Then there was a quick thought to change the topic of this blog
from Advice to Opinion, but I wasn’t sure what the words meant.
To find the difference , a quick check of Miriam-Webster
came up with this definition of opinion:
“a formal expression of judgment or Advice by an expert”.
Being an expert is much to daunting so we’ll stick to giving advice.
“Men give advice; God gives guidance.” ~ Leonard Ravenhill
There is the answer to my dilemma.
When all else fails, let go and let God.
Best advice: Pray.
After you have prayed, make sure you take the time
or make sure you are listening when God answers
It seems that we often do with God’s will
as we do with the advice from others, we ignore it.
“I don’t want to give any advice to a 19-year-old,
because I want a 19-year-old to make mistakes
and learn from them.
Make mistakes, make mistakes, make mistakes.
Just make sure they’re your mistakes.” ~ Fiona Apple
Do not blame the advice of others for the mistakes you make.
Good advice is the guidance from your Higher Power,
given to you in those ah-ha moments.
Sometimes God’s messages or the messengers are positive,
but unfortunately, sometimes they are negative.
If you chose to do the next best thing in the service of
mankind and your Higher Power, advice is not needed.
“If A equals success, then the formula is: A = X + Y + Z,
X is work. Y is play. Z is keep your mouth shut.” ~ Albert Einstein
Hold onto your beliefs dearly, but allow them to change
as your life changes.
Share your beliefs, do not give advice, and remember
as you believe, so shall you receive.
Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
