For some unknown reason, I have been thinking a lot about my childhood. What it was like. The feelings and emotions about certain situations I experienced. Maybe it's because summer is upon us...and my kids are driving me mad with expectations (swimming, beach, Raging Waters, sleep-overs, camping trips, movies, you name it).
Here are some things I wish I knew when I was a kid. I hope my kids will learn them.
- It's okay to have "nothing" to do. Soon, you will have too much to do. So enjoy it.
- Sometimes friendship is found in the least expected places.
- Mom says "no" to some things for your own good.
- In swimming, when your head is in the water, that's the best time to exhale.
- Sleep really is healthy for you.
- Sometimes, speaking up for yourself produces great results.
- Forgiveness releases you from misery's clutch.
- You should always hold the door for the person behind you.
- Sunscreen is a habit worth forming.
- Money has no expiration date. It's okay to save it.
