Re: One Recommendation

So many recommendations, so little time and I don't want to get smashed, so I'll keep it to one.

Everything in one's life falls into one of three buckets: that which we can control, that which we can influence, and that which we can neither control nor influence. Know what falls in what bucket and choose to spend your time, effort, and energy on buckets one and two.

Re: One Recommendation

Don't ever give anyone any kind of advice!

I've learned if you want to share an important piece of information with someone that you would like them to accept, remember, or act on... do not spoon feed it, many people seem to prefer/value conclusions they arrived at themselves... introduce a little of it, to point in the right direction, and allow them to work out the rest, if they wish.

I only just learned this! Why didn't anyone ever share this with me?! I guess I had to work it out for myself!

Oh that's a good one. It's so annoying when people don't take the time to differentiate. It's like their too busy to do a simple grammar check.

Kestra does not condone arson. Any arson on the part of the poster is not the responsibility or fault of this thread.

Yes please. And while you're at it, the correct use of apostrophes in general.

Always double-check that image you stole from Google Image Search before airing it on the evening news.

Here's one courtesy of my husband. I need to take his advice myself:

Don't worry about things so much. It will drive you crazy.

Re: One Recommendation

Surely this is the greatest news moment ever.

I know there's been a ton of them but this one is so subtle, so modern, so rude

Re: One Recommendation

Good idea for a thread, Kes.

Give someone, anyone, a smile. You have no idea how such a simple thing can mean to people. It may even make someone's day. In some way, it can even be a stress relief to the person giving the smile. Smiles are a wonderful thing.
