Inspiring self-worth in our children is a mothers manifest destiny. The road of life is filled with unexpected twists and turns. This trip doesn’t come with a road map, it’s all word of mouth! It is our duty to share with our children these fundamental truths that can empower them to find their own true path. Please share your thoughts with your loved ones and we would love to hear from you too.

• It’s okay to cry when you’re hurt. It’s also okay to smash (some) things; but, wash your face, clean your mess, and get up off the floor when you’re done. You don’t belong down there.
Happiness is not a permanent state. Wholeness is. Don’t confuse these.
Be less sugar, more spice, and only as nice as you’re able to without compromising yourself.
Can’t isn’t a word.
If you’re going to curse, be clever. If you’re going to curse in public, know your audience.
Seek out the
people and places
that resonate with your
5-second rule. It’s just dirt.
There are worse things in a fast food cheeseburger.
Just because you can,
doesn’t mean you should.
Hold your heroes to a high standard.
If you can’t smile with your eyes, don’t smile. Insincerity is nothing to aspire to.
Wish on stars and dandelions, then get to work to make them happen.
If you have an opinion, you better know why.
Ask for what you want. The worst thing they can say is no.
Fall in love often. Particularly with ideas, art, music, literature, food and far-off places.
Say Please, Thank You, and Pardon Me, whenever the situation warrants it.
Reserve “I’m sorry” for when you truly are.
Say what you mean and mean what you say.
Question everything, except your own intuition.
You have enough. You are enough.
You are amazing! Don’t let anyone ever make you feel you are not. If someone does….walk away. You deserve better.
No matter where you are, you can always come home.
Be happy and remember your roots, family is EVERYTHING.
No one will ever love
you more than I do.
Remember to follow your own advice and give yourself the hardest rule: Learn to let go and forgive. -Sat Nam
