Day 1559: Good Advice

Just now, when I searched my own posts for “Good Advice,” I got this message:


So, if you were looking for good advice between January 1, 2013 and April 7, 2017, it might have been advisable to look elsewhere.

Let’s see if we can find any good advice here, today.


Thanks for that good advice, Ocean!

Here’s more good advice:

  • Assume that you will survive everything that comes your way.
  • Enjoy the journey as best you can.
  • Throw away things you don’t need.
  • Do more of what helps.
  • Do less of what doesn’t help.
  • Spend time with people you like.
  • Avoid those who hurt you.
  • Take a deep breath.
  • Make noise.
  • Accept all your feelings.
  • Show up.
  • Be gentle.
  • Tell the truth.
  • Be in the moment.
  • Use all your senses.
  • Access your wisdom.
  • Let go of worry, fear, and shame.
  • Trust yourself.
  • Love freely.
  • Care less about what other people think.
  • Communicate clearly and directly.
  • Move.
  • Stop and smell the roses.
  • If there aren’t any roses around, stop and see my latest photos.






If you have any good advice, I advise you to leave a comment.

More good advice from me:

  • Listen to music that makes you happy.

  • Express gratitude.

  1. that is so funny –

  2. These two…

    – Make noise.
    – Accept all your feelings.

    …so important, so difficult.

  3. Ann and the ocean, perfect together and a good source for advice.

  4. To rephrase D.H. Lawrence, They say the sea is mute but the sea provides the best advice of all. And that advice includes: Don’t be afraid to rock the boat.

  5. A great post! Thanks! 😀

  6. Hop on Nelson’s Cove. Be careful of graffiti artists in Weir Meadow. Read Ann Koplow’s blog and smile.

  7. Roseelaineblog

    Great post, a pleasure to read 🌹

  8. I love this. It’s important to take time away from electronics and enjoy nature. Be still. Gratitude is my favorite (you mentioned this).

  9. And perhaps we should eat a little, tiny chocolate cheesecake everyday (is that what that is) or is it chocolate mousse, or just at the minimum, do one thing each day that makes us happy, or someone around us happy.

  10. Cupcakes.
    Cupcakes are ALWAYS good advice.

  11. Some excellent viewponts in these photos. I’d advise you to find a new home where you can enjoy more.

  12. That is beautiful shorefront and I particularly like that tidy grey house. Puns are always welcome. This post will tide me over for quite awhile, thank you.

  13. That ocean stuff is definitely worth a wave.

  14. Such good advice all in one place. Thank you Ann 💛

  15. “Nothing found”, hahaha. “Be Shore of Yourself”. hahahaha. “Tell the Truth”. Good advice. My advice: Watch out for bats.

  16. If you are looking for brains in Tim’s family you will find the sign “Nothing Found” because they are all a bunch of mindless bums, just saying

  17. Did you find your place by the sea Ann?

  18. My advice would be to print out that list, put it in your daily view, and practice happiness every day. That’s what I’m doing!

  19. For me too, I loved your advice. Thank you dear Ann, Love, nia

  20. Advice from a tree: Let your Limbs Sway and Dance in the Breezes; I love the wierd meadow!
