Words of Wisdom by Rhonda

Come gather 'round auntie Rhonda, my kiddies. It's time for me to share WORDS OF WISDOM (that part is said in a deep, echoing voice):

1--you can tell how a guy's gonna treat you by the way he treats his mom (or other significant females in his life)

2--spend at least a few minutes by yourself every day

3--faith and action must go hand-in-hand

4--don't trust someone who says, "trust me"

5--if you want to see the best and the worst in someone, go on vacation together

6--the more you learn, the more you realize you don't know

7--don't ditch your friends for a guy/girl--it's important to keep and nurture those friendships

8--it's NEVER too late to try something new

9--chocolate has zero calories when used in a therapeutic manner

10--even if you give 100% into a relationship, it's still only 50% (because you're only 1/2 of a couple)

So, what words of wisdom do YOU have to share?


  1. Take care of yourself or no one else will want to.

  2. If there are little signs early on that the person you're dating is a tool, don't brush them off. Listen to your gut.

  3. These are the two favorite things anyone I love ever told me:

    1. Worrying is like rocking in a rocking chair... it gives you something to do but it doesn't get you anywhere. --Granny Olinger

    2. Don't date a man who buys jewelry the same place he buys fishinng tackle and motor oil. --Papa Olinger

  4. You can't really love someone else until you love yourself first.

    Don't rely on someone else to make you happy.
