A Deaf Ear

Daily Draw: Thousand and One Nights Tarot ~ 5 of Cups

Ahh, we love to give advice, almost better than speculation on people's income. How much of it do we listen to?

I'm reminded by this card the human life span isn't long enough to learn from history, but it doesn't hurt a thing to at least consider a good friends opinion. They can often see a situation more clearly than we can.

"We should be especially careful in giving advice that we would not think of following ourselves." ~ Adlai Stevenson 1900-1965

  1. I like hanging around older women because they have so much life experience they can share. Sometimes the "advice" is not so much what to do, but how they handled a similar situation and how things turned out as a result, whether good or bad. As the Demotivator website says: "It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others." :)

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from anyone with a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
