"Listen"!

Years ago, when I was separated before I ended a toxic marriage. I move in a one room apartment, in a bad part of town. There was a student intern in my complex. He was sharp, and 8 younger. His demises was money , he was very frugal with , but obsessed with making more . For his whole goal into going to college was to make . He was in a field he didn't prefer be in, but he thought having his degree would show him how make big money .

After he graduated, he was in an idea job, one with great benefits, retirement and told to just do what he had to do, in with 5 to 7 years he could make 6 figures. But he heard there was money to be made now, so he quit an opportunity of a lifetime! Later, I heard from him, he told that he should had listen people in the past, he blown good opportunity for obsessed with that might dollar! I told him, that one day, they going to take his freedom from him, for he'll do anything for money .

This was over 25 ago, but in the last 5 , we connected. He's married with in Arizona. He still have his bad habits, he don't want a 9 to 5, he do all kind of things survive and provide for his family, some is right and some is wrong.. I talked to him I'm blue in the face. Last Sunday, he done something wrong, his wife called me and told me that's he's in jail. My ego wanted to say, "I told you so", by it's not about me. I don't know what the futures hold for him, but I pray that God protect him!

My advice, quick is not good ! Always do what's right, for if you do wrong, you will be caught! I don't have all the answer, but if someone is your friend, care about you, just do this one thing for me. is "Listen"! What they say, might make your life better. The word of the day is "Listen"!

Some people never listen my friend, sorry to hear your friend went to jail. But you know there are some people who just will do anything to get lots of money. You got to work for it so you feel good about what you have accomplished. I hope your having a great Sunday..

Just your average every day run of the mill nana here!!!

Sometimes in life, we have nothing to offer, but advice! We talk to people and try to get them on the right path, but if the choose wrong and decide not to "Listen"! There nothing we can do to help them.
