bits & pieces of advice

Day 8, Wednesday: A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all.

some to take to the heart: 
**don't let other people decide how you should feel about yourself
**never sell yourself short because of doubt
**who you've been isn't who you have to be
**beauty isn't something that can put into a pretty little box with a bow. it is wild & messy & unique & everyone, EVERYONE, is beautiful in some way
**you are the best version of yourself when you are around people who want the best for you
**trust isn't given, it's earned
**there will always be someone smarter, prettier, more successful, and more talented than you anywhere you go. but that does not mean you are not smart, pretty, successful, or talented 
**lying is a gateway drug
**moderation is the key to a balanced life
**a smile can be a game changer in someones life
**never take yourself too seriously. life needs laughter every once in a while

life lessons i've learned along the way
+ there is no way to make the word diahhrea sound cute
+ if a guy invites you over to watch netflix---he doesn't want to watch netflix
+ farting is not the way to a mans heart
+ if your legs are chaffing rub deodorant between your thighs
+ floss can almost solve every single problem
+ always check for a plunger beforehand
+ if you don't like someone, don't spend time with them
+ the cure to any bad day is target
+ you can always be accepted in your sweats at walmarts at any hour of the day
+ bringing taco bell into the movie theater isn't a great idea; it's sad
+ anytime you are heavily drinking turn off your phone
+ heavily drinking generally isn't a good idea 
+ 99% of the time if a guy picks you up at a bar or tries to get your number driving down the road he isn't the type of guy you want to bring home to meet mom and dad
+ if you are over the age of 15 your parents should not be washing your underwear
+ the best kinds of friends are the ones who love you even once they get to know you

& some random pieces of advice from my dad
- never take a wooden nickle (i'm not sure if there is a hidden meaning behind that)
- don't spit into the wind
- don't get off on random exits in the middle of nowhere. you will die. (ie, be found in a ditch somewhere) 
- if you think you are hot snot you're probably just cold boogers
- don't try to outrun a bear, just try to outrun whoever you are with

&& his famous words of advice the day i got my license
-"don't think you are super cool now that you are driving. because this is what is going to happen. you will be cruising down the road thinking you are a hot shot and you will see a cute guy and try to flirt with him. next thing you know your car will be in a fiery crash and your turn indicator will be through your forehead. so keep your eyes on the road at all times.
and remember what i said about wooden nickles."
