Some Pieces of Advice

Don’t date because you are desperate.
Don’t marry because you are miserable.
Don’t have kids because you think your genes are superior.
Don’t philander because you think you are irresistible.
Don’t associate with people you can’t trust.
Don’t cheat.
Don’t lie.
Don’t pretend.

Don’t dictate because you are smarter.
Don’t demand because you are stronger.
Don’t sleep around because you think you are old enough & know better.
Don’t hurt your kids because loving them is harder.
Don’t sell yourself, your family, or your ideals.
Don’t stagnate!
Don’t regress.

Don’t live in the past. Time can’t bring anything or anyone back.
Don’t put your life on hold for possibly Mr. Right.
Don’t throw your life away on absolutely Mr. Wrong just because your biological clock is ticking.
Don’t bring another life into this world for all the wrong reasons.
Don’t abandon your responsibilities but don’t overdose on duty.
Don’t live life recklessly without thought and feeling for your family.

Don’t commit when you are not ready.
Don’t keep others waiting needlessly.
Don’t be afraid. Don’t lose your capacity to love.
Don’t lose faith in God.
Don’t grow old. Just grow YOU!

To terminate your loneliness, reach out to the homeless.
To feed your nurturing instincts, care for the needy.
To fulfill your parenting fantasies, get a puppy.
To make yourself happy, pursue your passions & be the best of what you can be.
Sometimes, there is no race to be won, only a price to be paid for some of life’s more hasty decisions.
Simplify your life. Take away the clutter.
Get rid of destructive elements: abusive friends, nasty habits, and dangerous liaisons.

Be true to yourself.
Do what you have to, even at society’s scorn.
Take care of yourself. Don’t wait for someone to take care of you.
You light up your life.
You drive yourself to your destination.
No one completes you – except YOU.

When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you’ll never get back.
Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give to someone is your time.
Relationships take time and effort, and the best way to spell love is T-I-M-E because the essence of love is not what we think or do or provide for others, but how much we give of ourselves.

It isn’t true that life does not get easier with age.
It only gets more challenging.
Go on that trip. Don’t postpone it.
Say those words. Don’t let the moment pass.
Learn a new skill.
Find a new friend.
Start a new career. 

Write poetry.
Love Deeply.
Walk barefoot.
Dance with wild abandon.
Cry at the movies.

Pursue your passions.
Live your dreams.
God is good all the time!

  1. Thanks for this, it inspires those people think that they are

    1. Sure, ms Chris. You're welcome. :)

  2. Some really good advice there :)

    1. Yeah. Got it from my Tumblr blog. :)

  3. I'll take note of that, the real summary of what and shouldn't be done in our lives. I came to appreciate life more upon reading this Ms. Leah. Thanks for sharing this.

  4. Thank you miss lea for posting this. Nakaka inspire. :) God bless you. :)

  5. Nice one. Love your new layout Ms Leah. God bless!

  6. What have you done to your blog? I can't seem to select and/or copy text, and right-clicking gives a "disabled" pop-up!

    Also, not starting a new career because just meeting new friends is waaay more fun. ;D

    1. Hehe. Well, I got a new template, Fang.. :D And the posts are protected. Can't copy/select them, the right-click is disabled as well. :p

  7. Wow. It's all great advice, save for the puppy part. Some of those people who want children, but shouldn't have them still wouldn't be good pet owners. But I am glad to see I have taken almost all of your advice before hand.

    1. Hmm, I see your point. Not all great pet owners make great parents, and vice versa.

  8. These are words for keeps. These are real gems in our treasure chest that truly defines real happiness.
