Jenna Bush-Hager recently opened up on Hoda & Jenna to talk about the best advice her grandfather gave her. Former President George H.W. Bush often gave her amazing advice and she remembers all of it still.\r\n\r\n\u201cMy grandpa, who lived until he was 94, I\u2019ll never forget. Well, first of all, he had this little list of rules that he lived by and they're all really good ones, like, \u2018Don\u2019t talk all the time. Listen to your mentors and friends and learn from them,\u2019\u201d Jenna says. Hoda responds with a laugh.\r\nJenna Bush-Hager shares the helpful advice her late grandfather gave her\r\nhttps:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/CBBe71CHqzZ\/\r\n\r\nJenna shared her list of advice from Bush with TODAY and a lot of this advice still resonates with many!\r\n\r\nRELATED: Jenna Bush Hager Honors Her Late Grandfather George H.W. Bush\r\n\r\n \tDon\u2019t get down when your life takes a bad turn.\r\n \tDon\u2019t blame others for your setbacks.\r\n \tWhen things go well, always give credit to others.\r\n \tDon\u2019t talk all the time. Listen to your friends and mentors and learn from them.\r\n \tDon\u2019t brag about yourself. Let others point out your virtues, your strong points.\r\n \tGive someone a hand. When a friend is hurting, show that friend you care.\r\n \tNobody likes an overbearing big shot.\r\n \tAs you succeed, be kind to people. Thank those who help you along the way.\r\n \tDon\u2019t be afraid to shed a tear when your heart is broken or because a friend is hurting.\r\n\r\nOne piece of advice stuck with her right before he died\r\n\r\n\r\n\u201cI actually have them memorized, which is kind of weird,\u201d Jenna notes. \u201cAnd, \u2018Nobody likes an overbearing big shot,\u2019 which sounds so much like his words. And, \u2018Help a friend when they\u2019re hurting.\u2019 One of them, which I obviously listen to a lot, is, \u2018It\u2019s OK to cry when life takes a bad turn or when a friend hurts,\u2019\u201d she says, getting choked up and emotional.\r\n\r\nHowever, there is one piece of advice, in particular, that has stuck with Jenna for years. It was right before he died in 2018. \u201cAnd so he had these list of rules, but I\u2019ll remember we were sitting in Maine one night around the dinner table and it was the last summer of his life... And he looked at me and he couldn\u2019t hear very well and so he wasn\u2019t as much part of the conversation and he loved conversations. He loved conversations where there were agreements, where there were disagreements, with friends, with political \u2018enemies\u2019 who became friends and he leaned over to me and he could barely speak and he said, \u2018Don\u2019t forget to enjoy the game.\u2019\u201d\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/Bq2C0pbB-Yn\/\r\n\r\nJenna continues to explain why that specific advice broke her heart. \u201cAnd it broke my heart into a thousand pieces because what he meant is life is meant to be enjoyed, celebrate it. I think he also probably felt by that point he wasn\u2019t in it as much.\u201d\r\n\r\nWe certainly miss George H.W. Bush and his wisdom so much!
