The previous post was a bit of a cheat, so I thought I’d answer another journal jar question today as well.
I’ve struggled a bit with this question, and I really cannot pin down a particular piece of advice that I’ve ever been given as the most important, though I’m sure I’ve been given lots of useful advice over the years.
But what I do know is that the person I always turn to when I want a considered opinion and some sensible down-to-earth advice is my dear old Dad.
Over the years there have been many occasions when I’ve been in a quandary about all sorts of things – jobs, boyfriends, where to live – the list goes on. And whenever I’ve struggled with things that life has thrown at me, my Dad has been there with an open ear and some great help and advice.
As I’ve got older, perhaps I haven’t needed his advice so much, as life is calmer and more ordered as time goes on (one of the few joys of getting older, I guess!), but it doesn’t mean that I value his advice any less.
So this is just to say thanks, Dad – all your advice really is and has been very much appreciated over the years xx
