hi there essay forum I really want to master essay writing skill I do have a grammar and comma problems to name a few can you help me thank you


What is the best advice you ever received? Why? And did you follow it?

The best advice I have received was the advice from my mom who said " everything thing happens for good". My mothers advice was so true and applicable . It gave me hope that when bad things happened to me or things don't turn out the way I want them because of my mom's advice I understood it was is for a reason. I followed it also because through out my life it was easy to find situations where I could get upset.

Since I was a little girl I heard my mom say "everything happens for Good" I heard her say it both for the good and the bad things that happened. hearing her telling me this when she saw me upset made me put it in my mind and apply it in my everyday life. Finding myself in small situations being mad like missing the bus to get to school or being rejected by a friend, I remember always getting mad at myself , people or even God. The time I applied for a job and after waiting two weeks for interview I was mad because I didn't the new job. This days thanks to God I have been changed because my mom' advice was so true and applicable. Now rather than just worrying myself why things always don't work out as I expected I learned not to give in or give up easily in every situations I found myself in but always I try to see beyond what is in front of me or try to focus on the positive sides of situations as they saying goes " you can either think the cup is half full or half empty".

The best counsel that I got from my mother when I connected it with what I read on the bible where it says in new testament "Give thanks in all circumstances" . I really believed that all things happens for a reason and that gave me hope. I was just wondering, pondering and thinking all the good and bad things that happened in my life. Even more I was just thinking about the good and bad things that happen in people lives and how even though at times it is very difficult to be thankful for the bad things that happen in my life but just remembering it in difficult situation helps me to clam down. I found it to be a good reminder to just keep on being optimistic .

The more I lived life there were more situations coming my way that I got me upset easily. To mention a few friends made me upset when they stopped calling me. Strangers made me upset because they cut line in front of me at a grocery store. The dog make me mad because it pee on the sofa. The microwave made me mad because it stopped working. Sometimes it was easy for me just to get upset rather that to be happy and being thankful for the lots of things I possess . But now since two or three years ago my mom's advice really sync in and I got to apply it and at times it was difficult to believe everything was happening for a reason as the saying goes " Everything happens for a reason and a reason" but just not getting upset because I missed the bus to go to school or that I broke up with my boyfriend really felt good. It made me feel that I was doing the right thing. That I was living my life to the fullest which when I look back at my life I was sure not to find any regrets.
Ever now and then as I go through this life this two advices pop in my mind and remind me how my moms advice "everything is for good" is such an outstanding advice it gives me happiness a sense of meaning that things are not just happening but for a reason.

"Everything thing happens for good," was the best advice that I received from my mom.

Please correct the above sentence. The rest is fine. YOU always have to impress the reader in the beginning, and to do so, you need to put the quote in the very front.

Thank you,
Here is some help for the first part, where you had the important errors:

The best advice I have received was the advice from my mom, who said, "everything thing happens for good." My mother's advice was so true and applicable . It gave me hope when bad things happened to me or things don't turn out the way I wanted them, that perhaps it was is for a reason. I followed it also because through out my life it was easy to find situations where I could get upset.

Since I was a little girl I heard my mom say, "Everything happens for Good." I heard her say it both for the good and the bad things that happened. hearing her telling me this when she saw me upset made me put it in my mind and apply it in my everyday life. Finding myself angry in some situations, such as being mad when I missed the bus or being rejected by a friend; I remember always getting mad at myself, other people or even God.

The counsel that I got from my mother was enhanced when I connected it with what I read in the New Testament, "Give thanks in all circumstances."

Good luck!!!

What the first guy said is a good idea. You don't want to bore the reader who has just read hundreds of other essays right at the beginning. Try to focus on a specific idea or instance.
