This week's ADM'S blog hop is What is the best advice ever given?
I know I have been given alot of advice over the years since I am a single mom. Some has been good, some bad, some AWFUL. But I have learned you smile nod and just take it with a grain of salt. The good stuff you stick it in your pocket of knowledge and figure out what to do with it later.
The best advice as of lately that I have recieved and used is " Do what is best for your daughter and you and SCREW EVERYONE ELSE!" I have really started using this. It has taken me a long time to get all of this advice through my thick skull but I finally have done it. For years I have done whats best for Mackenzie but I have always allowed peopled to walk all over me, push me around, and take advantage of me. Well that time is OVER. I now do what is best for Mackenzie and ME!
I know alot of you dont know things about me....well anything about me so heres the big scoop of what changed me. On September 11 2010 my Daughter was sexually assaulted. She was assaulted by a family member of ours. And this event has caused ALOT of turnoil in our lives. I however took this awful awful thing and would not let it get the best of me. I took it and made myself learn to stand strong not only for my daughter but for myself. I have lost many family members and friends along the way since this event in our lives has happened. But I do not care because we only want people who are positive influeces in our lives. So I am very very glad that I was given this advice and was actually able to take it and learn to stand tall for my family!
