Love In A Big World: Lessons from Mama

May 26th, 2017

Dear Child of Mine,

In a world that is uncertain, whether because of graduation, tragic events or life choices, hold fast to these truths. Read them over and over again until they anchor your soul.

  • You are loved. Nothing you do will ever change that. 
  • Be authentic. Be who you are. Let the inside & the outside match. Don’t try to impress with outward appearances. What really shows is the heart, so ask your heart how it’s doing. 
  • Be kind to everyone, especially children.
  • Play. Laugh. Dance. Sing. Be silly. It’s good for your heart.
  • Every day is a new day… a fresh start. 
  • Forgive. Holding onto hurt causes bitterness. Bitterness will drive people away from you; forgiveness will draw them to you.
  • Relationships are what matter most. Build bridges, not walls. This is true personally & professionally.
  • Persevere. Good things come to those who do their best & don’t give up.
  • What matters most about a person is the heart… not skin color, looks, height, weight, money or popularity.
  • Find your fit.
  • It’s okay to ask for help.
  • There’s usually more than one way to get where you’re going.
  • Take time to process. Let yourself feel what you need to feel. Talk things through. There is no need to rush big decisions.
  • It’s okay not to be okay. 
  • Connection, relationship; they're more important than being right.

And always remember: I love you.

With all my heart,
