Thankful for Advice

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? I can honestly say that I am thankful for advice given to me from those wanting to help me grow and learn over the years.  I am, also, thankful for those that realized that rather than advice, what I really needed was a chance to rant, release and move on.  Having people in your life that are willing and able to let you do just that when necessary is fantastic.

Thankful for Advice

The times I have been given the best advice it was given honestly, straight-forward and with love.  I did not feel as though I was being chastised or judged.  It was from the heart and it was genuine.

When receiving advice and trying to determine if it is best for me or not, I typically consider:

  • the source – is this someone who is trustworthy and reliable?
  • the intentions – is this advice with a catch or is it genuine?
  • my gut instinct – do I feel hesitant when acting on the advice or does it feel right?

When have you been most thankful for advice?


Thankful ThursdayEach Thursday on Divas With A Purpose, we pause to reflect on what we’re thankful for. Gratitude is a huge part of my life. A few years ago I made a conscious decision to reflect more on what I had versus what I did not have – since then I have seen a considerable positive change in my attitude and demeanor even in stressful situations. I encourage my supporters to take a moment to think about what they have to be thankful for. Feel free to share below in the comments – you never know how you’ll inspire and motivate someone else.

Many thanks to everyone that joined us for last week’s Facebook Thankful Thursday event!

Make sure to join us on Mondays when we share our Making A Happy Home Moments.

The best advice I was ever given was by my Social Studies teacher. He said to keep the peace never talk about religion or politics.

I'm always thankful when my BFF gives me advice. He's brutally honest... and sometimes it hurts to hear... but I need it, and I need to hear it. It's the only way for him to drill it into my head, lol.

I love getting advice, especially from the ones I love. The ones that actually know me and accept whatever is going on in my life without judgement. I'm blessed to have a handful of people I can talk to and get great advice from, definitely people I am thankful for!

Yes, I am thankful for advice. I need a sounding board, and it comes with advice - I am happy. It is through advice of friends and my mom I have the ablity to make the right choices for my family

Even if I choose not to follow the advice I am usually grateful for it if someone has taken the time to share their thoughts on something constructively with me.
