June Challenge - Day 18
Day 18 – Best Advice
When I think of the best advice I automatically think of my aunt and the things she said to me. One piece of advice she gave me is to never stay in a relationship if you are unhappy and miserable, because life is too short not to have peace in your life. I am serious about there being peace in all aspects of my life. If there is unrest in any portion it affects all parts of my life and I am not going to live miserable because others are miserable in their lives.
She also told me to do all I wanted to do as far as education before I ever get married and have children. I may have taken this advice a little too seriously. Anyway, she always said it is difficult to go to school and still be able to take care of home and kids. She did it, because she had her third and fourth kids while working or her bachelor’s degree and she said it was too hard and she didn’t want others to do it that way. She didn’t have to worry about me because I got all three degrees without worry about a man or children.
I really appreciated the advice about peace because when I look around and see family members and friends living in a state of chaos, I am thankful for understanding how important peace is. Thanks, Aunt Marie!
