What is the best piece of advice you've ever been given?

When I was a senior in high school, I was on the yearbook staff. I was complaining to a friend one day that "Ug, I wish we were graduated!"
My cranky English teacher looked at me and said only this, "Child, you'll wish your life away."
And as my life flies by, I understand more and more how true that is.

  • When complaing,there's always someone worse off than you,

    And,the all time favorite,take one day at a time,meaning yesterday is gone,today is a blessing,and tommorow isn't promise to you.

  • Haha that's funny ron :D

    My mom told me this: Don't let anyone ever treat you like they're better than you. Everyone puts their pants on the same way: one leg at a time.

  • My mom has always told me not to take myself so seriously. That can be applied to so many situations.

  • Put yourself in the other person's shoes.

    That and treat others as you'd like them to treat you.

  • What's that one...

    Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift, that's why it's called the present.

    Awww :D
