I Asked 31 People What The Best Advice They Ever Got Was And This Is What They Said

Instead of shower thoughts, I have late night before I fall asleep thoughts. One night this past week, I was thinking about the best piece of advice I ever received. I had a ton of different initial thoughts. The next morning, I asked my family what their answer to the question was and every family member said something so dramatically different. I asked others to see what they thought and this is what they said.

Do the hard work now while you are young, but have your fun

Be the nice kid

Listen to what others say but to trust yourself and value your own judgments more than the opinions of others

If you can live your life without an audience, do it

Hope for the best, expect the worst

Marry a rich man who is never home and lets you spend all his money

It is later than you think

If you wait, good things will happen

Think about how you would handle a situation if you were 10 years older, more mature, and more wise, but don’t forget to bring your 10 year old self along and make them happy too

Have more than you show, speak less than you know

Check in on yourself

It is ok to be selfish about your own happiness

Don't try to fit your own seat at a table where you aren't appreciated. Make your own table and people will gravitate towards you

You only have to be good enough for yourself. Not anyone else.

Forgiveness is better than revenge

Take time to get to know yourself

Be patient

Life isn't fair

Be as kind as you can to everyone, you don't know what battles they are fighting

Find joy in the little things

Don't be a victim of your situation

Laugh as much as you can

Find out what is important to you in life and devout your life to it. Don't let others get in the way

Treat people with kindness (#TPWK)

Fairytales can come true, you just have to make them happen

Hold your loved ones close

You are braver and stronger than you know

Don't judge someone based on the opinions of others

Take those crazy chances

Don't hold grudges, life is too short

If is seems scary, then do it. Chances are it will be worth it

When you start loving yourself, everything falls into place

African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
