Learn it, Live it!

A friend of mine is going through a very hard time right now-out of work, court case regarding her daughter, etc...

I called her last night to check in on her, and I heard the strangest thing-me, giving advice that I should be taking.

"Stop beating yourself up over things you did in the past. That's a dangerous place for us to be."

"You did what you thought was right."

"You are talented and skilled-if it wasn't for this economy, things would be totally different. It's not your fault."

"Look how far you have come. You've completely changed your life-give yourself credit for all the changes you have made."

"You're surrounded by people who love you-don't forget that."

Weird, that I can say all those things when I forget them myself so easily.

Totally. I often tout thatI am an excellent advice-giver and I firmly belive my advcie is good advice...

but I also fess up to the fact that I can't take my own advice for the life of me.

Isn't that weird? Why can't we apply all our awesome life lessons to ourselves?
