If Only

Not to pat myself on the back, but sometimes I give some really good advice.  Other times I can be pretty encouraging.  And I’m not just blowing sunshine up folks’ posteriors; I mean what I tell them.  If you know me, you know that while I will usually be nice (unless you’re in my inner circle, and then I will usually be snarky), I will not lie to you.  I’m more apt to tell you, “That’s not your gift, boo, but you are really great at x, y, and z,” than I am to tell you everything will come up roses.

If only I would follow my own advice and listen to my own encouragement.
