HGTV's Fixer Upper star, Chip Gaines offers life advice from his Charlie Brown-esque advice booth. And his first few suggestions are just about as spot on as Lucy Van Pelt!
Chip and Joanna Gaines are back in the spotlight after a hiatus from their Fixer Upper show, we're happy to see them making the rounds again! Of course, Chip is known for his off-the-wall humor and childlike antics. Who better to spoof Lucy's advice booth as we enter into the holidays where the Peanuts characters are a staple tradition just as much as turkey and ham!
Chip Gaines Offers Life Advice
Q: "My boyfriend hates desserts, should we break up?"
A: "Drop that fool like a hot potato! I'm positive that this guy is no good... for you!"
Of course, it's all fun and games. (Please don't drop your boyfriend if they don't like dessert. This might be God's way of giving you a second portion of cherry pie!) After a few silly questions, Chip moves from funny man to serious advice-giver.
Q: " What's your best advice for starting over and finding my passion?"
A: "….When is the best time to plant a tree? And the answer is 25 years ago. When's the second best time to plant a tree and the answer is TODAY."
But Chip was prepared to go so much deeper with the next question. It's something that is weighing heavy on many of our hearts.
Q: "I'm concerned with the current state of the world. What's one thing I can do to make a difference?"
Without skipping a beat, Chip offered sage advice: "Volunteer. You walk by somebody that looks like they need a helping hand, talk to them… We forget that other people exist. And that other people might need an encouraging word from us today, so if you are looking to BE encouraged, encourage somebody in the process and it usually goes both ways!"
What an important reminder to put others first and take the moment to love on someone else!
