Sage advice....

13 Jun, 2024

It's interesting how some things just fall into place, and just when I needed them to. I had gotten some bad news the other day which has been causing me some upset. Then I get a phone call...... after a couple of years of not hearing from a special gent, he reappears just at the right time and set up a date for Friday.Then a dear friend invited me to dinner that evening..... Both offering some very sage advice.....

The sage advice from my client, was to stop posting about review boards, lol. Omg, that made me laugh, when he said it.....mostly because of the expression on his face..... He said while catching up on me, he had read through some of my tweets on twitter, and my blog. He deduced, that I was sounding like a "broken record" (his wording), lol. He also recommended that I stop reading what's posted on the review boards, and to keep my opinions of them off my social media. He felt in was in my best interest to delete any of that stuff from there, and to also stop commenting about them here in my blog. He felt all that stuff wasn't flattering to me, nor did it show the truth of my character. He felt the drama those boards creates wasn't worth my time. He felt I should concentrate on more important topics, and the things that make me laugh. Which he can easily do.... He said he understood why I disliked the review boards so and claimed to agree with much of what I've said about them. He also felt that people will gravitate to them or not, regardless of how I felt, and regardless of how often, or how articulately, I pointed out one should. So although I made him no promises, lol, I did say, "I'd try". I care about this man and his opinions, and I take his advice seriously, as I know he has my best interests at heart. So I sincerely will try......I did delete one post, lol.... Anyhow, what a privilege it was to have seen him. Catching up with someone I've bonded with is so rewarding, in so many ways, and came at just the right time.......Then to end my Friday I got to spend the evening with one of the nicest people I know.....We had a beautiful dinner, and a long conversation about alot of different topics. She can certainly make me think. I've met lots of people throughout my life, and very, very few are as unbiased, nonjudgemental, or as understanding as she. The term "one in a million" certainly fits her to a T, I'm lucky to have her as a friend.....So my Friday and my Fri/evening were just what I needed, as was the sage advice given.....I'm hoping I'll adhere to much of it.
