"He's no Good Girl, Why Can't You See?"

  Day 8, Wednesday: A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all.
"Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone, just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had."

Y'all how am I qualified to give advice. I'm just some random girl from Texas who is quite honored and humbled that my words seem to touch people. Word on the street is I didn't start talking till I was almost three. I developed very late and I'm sure the doctors have some fancy scientific way of explaining it, since I was born super early. If you ask my momma she would just say I started talking late and I'm still making up for lost time.

I was on the phone last night with Bestfran NĂºmero UNO (hence the picture. Shhh, y'all don't tell her I posted this pic) and I asked her what's some good advice I could give for today's post. I told her I never give advice. She got all excited and started yellin', "LIAR! You give advice all the time. And good advice!" She told me that I should share the advice I gave her last night. I didn't even realize it came across as advice. So from me to you: 

So, bestfran called and was all upset about a boy she had been talking to. Apparently he seemed to have dropped off the face of the earth and was ignoring her all of the sudden. She was upset and wondering what she did wrong and why this kept happening. I told her Maybe God's been blatantly throwing signs your way that he's no good for you but you haven't taken the hints and listen. He finally got tired of it and said I'll show you. So maybe God just decided to remove him from the equation since you couldn't seem to do it yourself.

So I guess my actual advice would be a quote I love dearly:

Y'all just remember this and always keep the faith. God won't put you through more than you can bear. He's got this and we need to stop questioning him.

Y'all I've officially agreed that I'm funny after a kindergartner goes, "Ms. Aleshea, sometimes you real funny!" After I asked him how he proceeded to tell me. I didn't believe him but then A few minutes later he ran up to me and goes, "see you did it again. Ms. Aleshea you be funny!" If a kindergartner tell me I'm funny, then Dadgummit I'm funny.

  1. Children give great advice, are so honest and are a great judge of character - so you must be totally funny! That aside, like you said about judging people, the older I get the more I bite my tongue when it comes to saying things about others. It's great advice! xoxox

  2. Agree, you cannot criticize others because we each have had different life experiences. x

  3. GURL, we almost gave the same advice!!!

    I've learned that if people [boys/girls] don't call you or invite you places THEY DON'T CARE about you...so move along and find other, better people!

    you are funny and FUN!

  4. So true!! I love The Great Gatsby's opening line, btw!! :)
    will always keep that in mind

  5. Wow. THIS HITS HOME. I was having issues with a boy that I was dating and as soon as I stopped and let God take over my plans, I left him and shortly after met the man of my dreams and now we are happily married! I truly believe once you 'let go and let God' things fall nicely into place. Love your blog!!
    Came to you via the Link up for the May Challenge, keep it up!! :)

  6. I hope one day my faith is strong enough for me to believe this but nonetheless thanks for sharing

    Stopping by via the link up

  7. Just stopping by from the challenge... thanks so much for sharing your piece of advice!

  8. This post goes perfectly with mine today. Have her read "He's Just Not That Into You." Life changing.

  9. 2 Things:

    1. You crack me up! I found your blog via the challenge, and I just love your voice- it's so real!

    2. Dang it, this advice hits home hard. I've been having "man" trouble too, and I just love the way you put it- God is basically bonking us over the head for failing to see His other signs. Word.

  10. Love this, hard for me to remember at times!

  11. sometimes GOd must think Im deaf...but really Im just stubborn and possibly a little too stupid to interpret what hes saying.

  12. ah, yes. boy problems seem to be the most difficult to willingly get ourselves out of. those were good words. a good chance the Man Himself put them in your mouth just for your bff :)

  13. "Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone, just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had."

    I love this!
