THINGS I WILL TEACH MY CHILDREN

 

  1. Forgiveness is giving up all hope of a better past.
  2. The most difficult challenges are often the most rewarding and satisfying.
  3. Experience is what you get when you don’t get what you wanted.
  4. To do great things, you have to go unrecognized, be under-appreciated and push to unreasonable lengths.
  5. You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you might find/get what you need.
  6. Loving someone and having them love you back is the most precious phenomenon in the world.
  7. A modest dose of self-love is entirely healthy (who would want to live in a world where everyone hated themselves?)
  8. Worrying about the future is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum.
  9. The real troubles in life are always things that never crossed our worried minds.
  10. Don’t be afraid of a broken heart. You’ll love again.
  11. There’s just one life for each of us: our own.
  12. There’s no such thing as perfect. Give people second chances.
  13. When one door closes, another opens.
  14. Each failure teaches us important lessons in life.
  15. Life is good when we accept failures and success.
  16. Look at life positively and you’ll find every hurdle a stepping stone to success.
  17. Good friends love you at ALL times. Period.
  18. Prince charming is a myth.
  19. Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery.
  20. Life ends up being really short, no matter how long you live.
  21. Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you.
  22. The word sorry loses its magic when you use it too often, especially for the same mistake.
  23. Difficult times help us to understand better how infinitely rich and beautiful life is, that so many things one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.
  24. There will always be mean, inconsiderate people.
  25. Keep smiling.
  26. Remain true to yourself because there are even a few people who will always be true to you.
  27. Saying sorry when mistaken illustrates strength not weakness. Saying “I’m sorry” does not come easy for most people. If you have made a mistake, confess it and come clean. Seek forgiveness and be courageous to accept punishment.
  28. Don’t promise if you are not sure you’ll do, just say you’ll do your best.
  29. “Thank you” can be an incredibly powerful pair of words, especially if the person you’re thanking really needs to hear them, or isn’t expecting them.
  30. Life takes place only in this present moment. Living in the present moment has the power to open the door to joyful living.
  31. Never take anything for granted, be grateful for everything that you have.
  32. Love is a refuge for the lonely and depressed. With it almost nothing can go wrong.
  33. If you love someone, tell them (before it’s too late).
  34. Music, music, music…makes everything better.
  35. Enjoy the little thing in life, for someday you will realize they were the big things.
  36. (Sometimes) A good cry is great therapy.
  37. True wealth is the ability to fully experience life.
  38. You can’t control what others think of you. So let go.
  39. Jesus loves you.
  40. Make efforts everyday to be your best possible self for the good of all.
  41. The good life is one inspired by love.
  42. Home is not where we live, but who we love.
  43. Seek to love more than be loved and you will be loved much more than if you seek it directly.
  44. Respect is the root of all good things. Respect for authority shows obedience, respect for others covers kindness and respect for oneself shows self-control and self-worth.
  45. Take advantage of every opportunity you get, you never know how much you can learn.
  46. Be sure people always come before things.
  47. Never do in private what you would not want the public to find out about.
  48. You will never marry someone you don’t dated, so never date someone you wouldn’t marry.
  49. If you can’t sing, sing anyway. if you can’t dance, dance anyway.
  50. Always give a hand to the needy, because they suffer.
  51. There’s more joy in giving than in receiving.
  52. No matter how sure you are of someone’s love, it’s always nice to be reminded of it.
  53. Be kind, for everyone we meet is fighting a struggle we know nothing about.
  54. Above all, fear God.
