Little Things My Mother Taught Me

It's Mother's Day. the one day of the year where we publicly honour the woman who gave birth to us, cooked for us & cleaned us, kept a roof over our heads and provided a shoulder to cry on. I wanted to share with you a few little things my mother taught me throughout the years.

* Have a big heart. Be kind and put others first. Love selflessly and take care of others. 

* Don't compare yourself to others. You are different, you are unique. Be happy being you.

* Happiness is the most important thing

* Forgive. There is no point in holding grudges, life is too short.

* You can never give too many hugs and kisses.

* Take pride in the way you look. Take care of yourself, and your body.

* Tell your children you love them all the time. It's never too often. 

* Learn to laugh at yourself. My mum is hilarious, and absolutely crazy, she makes me laugh all the time & laughs at herself too.

* The world doesn't revolve around you

* Live within your income

* It's ok to let your emotions out. Don't bottle it all in.

* If you want that chocolate bar, you eat it. Live a little. Haha

* You're special

* Don't waste a single day

One more thing my mum always says, and I will always remember. Some people grow up wanting to be teachers, lawyers, doctors, vets. My mum wanted to be a mum. 

"The best thing I ever did was become a mum"

I love you Mum.

Happy Mother's Day  xxx
