Advice Quotes: Life Tips From 100 Women

I’m lucky enough to have quite a few friends on Facebook thanks to this online gig that I have.  Throughout the last decade or so, I’ve had the chance to cross paths with thousands of women and someway or another, we’ve all stayed in touch. Well, the other day, I reached out to my community and asked them to share their favorite advice quotes. I mean – there are only so many Dwayne Johnson quotes I can read in a day. There weren’t many requirements for the task. The quotes could have been passed down by their parents or said by their favorite musicians. As long as they meant something special and were impactful, the quotes were fair game.

Over 100 people chimed in! I was excited!! I received emails, DMs and read comments on my FB wall all week long. It took quite a while to edit all the incoming data, but now it’s all buttoned up to share with you. Advice quotes act as a reset for people. Sometimes, you might be having a pretty bad day and all you need is a little pick me up. I try to live each and every moment filled with gratitude, but we all know that doesn’t always happen. It’s the truth – just being honest.Advice Quotes
