#Blogtober14 - Day 12 - Best Advice You've Been Given

Best Advice You've Been Given

its okay to say no quote

This is quite an easy one for me.

Just before I started University, my parents took me to my student accommodation with all my belongs and dropped me off, just before leaving my mother gave me a letter she'd wrote the night before and told me to read it after she left.

It was basically a letter telling me to look after myself, not to be stupid with money and to knuckle down and study properly.

It also had one important message ... she told me that 'it was okay to say no' - it took her 20 years to realise it herself, and she hoped that I realised it well before that.

So I believe that is the best advice I've ever been given.

What about you guys??
