“MOOOMMMMMMMM. WHAT’S THE BEST ADVICE I’VE EVER HEARD OR BEEN GIVEN?”
“You really want me to tell you?”
“Yeah, I figure it’s fair to ask you, you give me lots of advice.” I said.
“Because I can tell you,” she replies.
“Okayy. Go for it.”
She points at me with emphasis and says,”You know in your gut what the right thing to do is.”
As it turns out, the worst advice I’ve ever been given and the best advice I’ve ever been given end up teaching the same damn lesson, don’t they? And what is that? To follow your gut, because somewhere deep down, you already know the right answer. My mom also told me that if you ever have to question if something is the right choice, then it’s probably not.
PJ commented throughout all this that she’s just full of advice today, and I said that of course she is, she’s a Mama. They’re always full of advice!
