My thoughts on Advice

I love the 3 Stooges and sometimes, I just wanna be MO!!

We've all given it, we've all be given it, but here is my rule of thumb on advice.

If you ask me for my opinion, I will give it to you. I will try to be honest, but kind. If it is a matter of consequence, I will try very hard to pray, listen and only share what I believe the Lord would have me share or I will share out of my own experience.

I am not perfect, but this is my guideline for myself. Because....

Advice not asked for is just meddlesome!

That is also my opinion. I have found in life that I am much more receptive to other people's input when I'm at a place to ask for it and receive it. Other than that I am not ready, willing or able to accept someone else's opinion simply because they have one. Don't we all?

I'm a processor. It takes me time to realize what I'm feeling and work through it. It takes me time to decide a course of action on any given situation. For all those who mean well, please give me that time. I need to hear God first and foremost.

OK, so this is a rant. I still love you all. And in my humble opinion, you are all terrific!! Not that you asked for it, but my advice is... stay terrific!
