Life. When when I was just a young lady my grandmother told me that every single day we live will have something else to teach me. I didn’t believe her then but today at 34 years old I couldn’t agree with her more.

So…I am starting this list today…a list of life lessons and maybe thoughts on which I will be able to look back at and maybe even leave for my girls to read too…

  1. Fight for your happiness. Nobody else will.
  2. Worried? Anxious? Take a deep breath. It will calm your mind.
  3.  Everyone has fears
  4. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.
  5. Your children will be children only for a short while. Be there for them.
  6. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
  7. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. You only need  bot of patience.
  8. Every day is special. So…Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion.
  9. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
  10. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.
  11. If you feel like crying…cry. It WILL make you feel better.
  12. FORGIVE but never FORGET.
  13. ENVY is a waste of time. Accept what you already have ( I know is hard) and not what you think you NEED.
  14. You might not feel up to it every single day…but get up, get dressed and show up…
  15. How will you learn to fly if you never fall?
  16. There will always be someone who hasn’t given up on you. Don’t let them down. Ever.
  17. In the end there’s always a way out.
  18. Your children always deserve the best.
  19. When your child is ill you always have to be there.

………

101. THE BEST IS YET TO COME.

 

Of course…I will be adding to this list always…
