(2/2) 14✨Do your own research- ESPECIALLY when you’re making a big purchase. Just because she’s your mama’s long-time best friend from church doesn’t mean she’s got your back nor make her the expert (even if she got the certificate and wrote the book😒) #ShadeIntended
15✨No dick is good enough to allow someone to disrespect you- not even once.
16✨Just because someone hurt you doesn’t mean it’s impossible that you could’ve hurt them too.
17✨90% of the food at the grocery store isn’t even real food. Learning how to shop for and cook real food, though challenging at first, is a game changer. Your mental health, waistline, and wallet will thank you.
18✨Take MARTA whenever humanly possible... even if it looks like it’s quicker to drive. The danger your road rage poses to you, your kid, and other drivers just isn’t worth it.
19✨Practice speaking the truth in love. I say practice because the hardest and most necessary truths rarely deliver with ease.
20✨Get the good tires when you can, same for the bottle of Rosé 🍾 both are worth the investment
21✨Stop acting like you know everything. Be humble and tell people when you’re unsure, confused, just learning etc. People have a lot more respect for the self-admitted willing&trying-to-learn(er) than they do the “expert” who makes a novice mistake or two or five.
22✨There are people out there ready and willing to pay you what you’re worth and then some (yes, even without a degree)- position yourself accordingly and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
23✨They’re gonna talk. Give them something worth listening to.
24✨After everything you’ve been through, know that there is absolutely nothing you can not do. Do it scared, do it angry, do it alone, do it unsure, do it anxious. No matter what, just don’t stop.
