Share What We Know

Updated on December 13, 2015

It Sounds To Easy

Really it's quite hard

When you are offering free advice

People don't want to listen

I think they think because it's free it has no value

They couldn"t be more wrong

When I was young my mother and father taught me many things

I didn't know the value of their knowledge until years later

I was young

I was different

I will show them

What do they know?

We'll if there were different ways to eat my words

I would of had them

Fried, boiled , baked, sauteed, roasted, broiled to name just a few

Every day I see and learn the hard way

If I only listened

How would my life be different ?

More important I can learn now

My father use to say just use common sense

People don't want to think

Their lazy

I would say young people found a shortcut

Without all the work

What's wrong with that

There are certain basic principles

There are many variations

When you come right down to it

It's all the same

So if someone gives you some advice or hints

You might want to write them down

Do it your way

Wait maybe the day will come

The other ideas weren't that bad after all

To save some time and effort

Swallow your pride

Try their way

If it don't work

You haven't forgot your way

Give it a try

A little patience never hurt

It actually helps

You never know who may teach you

Good luck and like the little boy down my street says

May the force be with you

      Gypsy Rose Lee All we have to do is believe. Decorations are beautiful but the real love comes from each other. I know you want everything perfect but the world will never be perfect. I think if you take off the pressure to do something a certain way and say whatever we have time to do as long as we do it together then it will be a very special Christmas.. Last year we pulled out our fake tree and I couldn't find one of the legs to the Christmas tree stand. All tree stands aren't made the same and as much as I tried to make something work the tree would fall over.My wife was not happy. We didn't have the money to buy a new tree. We ended up tying the tree to a window sill and propping up the stand with bricks. It lasted through Christmas and we survived. Now I remember this Christmas over all the others.We laugh now. I am wishing you the deepest love that will help you find a way. Merry Christmas and a wonderful Happy New Year. Thank you for reading and caring.

      Jodah There are so many things you share in your hubs I don't know where to begin. I will mention all my hubs that you spent time reading and commenting. I am very proud to have a friend like you. Life is funny. Think of all the things we learn and it is not till years later we realize who we learned from. It's not a competition but a wonderful melting pot where some people add a little others add a lot. Thank you for taking the time and making me think my time was all worth it. Have a great night.

      Good advice often comes from very unexpected places Dream On. Some of the best advice I have been given (apart from my father's) has come from other hubbers here at Hub Pages (including you). There are some very wise people writing here as I am sure you know. I hope that others have found value in some of the messages I have placed within my hubs too.
