Quote Challenge Day 1

One of my most favourite bloggers, April over at R.Sativus recently nominated me to join in a Quote Challenge. I am most honoured and also most apologetic that it’s taken me so long to get going on this… Β I will pre-warn everyone that my quotes are going to be quite random.

And here is day one:

The right man at the wrong time is still the wrong man – Sheryl Graham

So you might be wondering who Sheryl Graham is. She’s my very good friend, Lauren’s mum. When I was in my late teens and early 20’s a bunch of us used to spend loads of time at the Grahams’ home. As you can imagine this was a tumultuous relationship time for us ladies and we spent a lot of time lamenting our love lives and how some guy we were supposedly in love with just wasn’t stepping up the plate because obviously he was perfect but the circumstances were all wrong.

I very clearly remember Sheryl giving us this particular piece of advice when this boy I liked left his girlfriend for me and then five minutes later decided he wanted to be single and then five minutes after that decided to get back with his ex. It was probably the best and most enduring piece of love related advice anyone has ever given me and I have continued to live by it.

Here are the rules of the challenge:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Publish 3 quotes on 3 consecutive days in your blog. It can be your own, or from a book, movie or from anyone who inspires you.
  3. Nominate 3 more bloggers to carry on this endeavour.

Everyone is of course welcome to participate but here are my picks:

  1. Vinneh
  2. ZoΓ«
  3. Laura

      Oh absolutely! It’s probably true of anything where opportunity and circumstance don’t line up.

  2. Thank you for the nomination, I will get around to doing it but it may take me some time.

      I have never known this particular piece of advice to be false!

  4. Nice quote! Very true. πŸ™‚

    1. abbiosbiston

      Thanks! It really has stuck with me through my life.

  5. You warm my heart, Abbi! 😊

    I’m glad you had Mrs Graham trying to look out for you at an age when everyone needs it. I was engaged to one Mr Right-but-Wrong-Time. Idk, he’s kind of weird now, so maybe he was wrong. And you know weird for me is pretty darn off.

      I was really lucky to be surrounded by some very wise moms including my own. I’ve definitely had some Mr Right but not right nows.

  6. […] know the quote challenge was supposed to be on consecutive days but I ended up having a bit of a crazy day yesterday and I […]
