The Best Advice I’ve Ever Given

best advice top 10

After celebrating my sassy side yesterday, I wanted to celebrate the other half of my writing today by sharing some of my favorite posts, the ones that contain the best advice I’ve ever given.

It’s a mixed bag of stories, lists, and encouragement. They have one common thread between them. My life was better when I figured “it” out… and I’m pretty convinced yours will be too.

(For those who are following along with my 31Day series on the Love of Writing… no, I’m not avoiding writing. Honest. I promise I’m not avoiding writing something hard. It’s totally not a stalling technique because I can’t figure out the next part of the series. Honest.)
