Okay…so I am going to take a break from the posts about my roller coaster life and pay tribute to those in my life that have passed on some wisdom that I am trying to share with those around me that apparently don’t have it.
My dad told me a long time ago that “you will talk your self into more trouble than you will talk your self out of.” Now if you have known me for a decent amount of time you will know that it took me a LONG time to truly understand this statement. Today I am fully aware of it and the truth behind it. So…when do we pass the threshold of listening to wisdom…and truly hearing it?
I remember so many bits of wisdom that has been passed down to me from my family, coaches, professors and mentors that guide the decisions that I make on a daily basis. I have learned over the years that they are absolutely true. Now I like to pass these bits of wisdom on to those around me that are not understanding of the situation, but as I once was…they don’t always seem to believe it. So…how can I illustrate their importance to a level that will not only be understood, but obeyed?
That is my challenge for the day…should be a fun one.
