What Are The Most Important Words Of Advice Given You By Your Parent? by alexasomba(m): 10:18pm On Aug 31, 2014
Before I left for the University my Mom said to me "always remember where you are coming from." sounded ordinary at first until it started influencing my decisions, till this very day based on those words I still think about family especially before making my long term decisions. It's almost as though she programmed my mind.

My Dad used parables a lot and one of them was "you can blame your parents for who you are but you cannot blame them for who you become" His own words rings like a bell in my head, telling me I'm to take responsibility for my own life.

They don't know how much their words impacted me though I'm (secretely) grateful.

Have you been given any good advice by your parent, grandparent, relative or anyone that mattered to you? Kindly share with us.

I've got a friend, we were in Secondary School when he lost his mom, being the only son she really did a lot to make him happy. He told me then that one phrase his mom used after shouting his name to call his attention especially when he is "busy" with his video games was "shey I'm calling you now and you're there playing your video game, okay o. Carry on." and those were the first set of words that got to him, when she passed on. He regretted not giving her enough of his time and attention, back then he told me "Alex, if my mom was alive now and called my name once I will answer and run to her a thousand times."

He asked me to pay attention to mine. I'm asking you to pay attention to yours.

I blogged about it here

From Dad-
i. Count your teeth with your tongue
ii. If you don't know how to pound on the mortar, then pound on the ground

From Mum -
i. Always pray
iI. Stay away from girls. They're very very deceitful. They can get pregnant for one guy and come and dump it on you.

I took my mum's second advice very very seriously and I still do! cheesy

As you lay your bed, so you lie on it. My dads favorite.

I didn't understand this parable while I was much younger, because most of the time I was too lazy to make my bed, and at other times I just lie on the bed and cover with the bed sheet. So 4 my mind I was like no problem dad, as I don't even like to lay my bed before. It was later I discovered he was only saying I should be prudent in all my decisions.

Me and my dad, we are not close. The first day i entered University, he took me there. Immediately i came down out of the car, he called me and said:

'Femi, In the school, you will find the library, and in the same school, you will see clubs. You are the architect of your life. I have paid you my dues. All the best.'

Consciously or not, that is what fueled me through.

As for my mum, she prays for me on phone every 1st day of the month.
