And the funny thing is, we've all got them, if you've lived at all. They remind you of the stupid stuff you've done, or the awful stuff that was done to you. I think they're there to remind us not to put ourselves in those positions again, that we don't get hurt again.

The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.--Oscar Wilde


First of all, make sure that the person who is talking to you is actually soliciting advice. He or she may just want you to listen and be a good friend, seeking instead understanding, empathy, and compassion. Don't assume that everyone wants advice. You may have some insight into the problem(s), but you really need to listen attentively to a person first for a very long time to understand the situation. If, and only if, your friend actually ASKS for advice should you then furnish it.

It is a great honor to be asked for advice, but it is also a big responsibility. Good advice can help people make sound decisions or find the right path in life, while bad advice can have disastrous consequences. Fortunately, with a little forethought you can weed out the good from the bad.

When parents say, "Go to bed", isn't that both, also.

A lot of people know the Commandments and ignore them, even though they are also good advice.

Now that you're retired - how do you fill your days?

Control your mind don't let it control you.
If one part of your mind gets too strong or bull-headed switch to another part. It's just like your computer, it'll display whatever you want it to, but your pushing the keys. If you hit the wrong one you can always delete-accept on Offbeat. LOL

Be free in your mind and do what's right. In the end you'll be judged on what you do, not what Congress did.
