Some Things Iâ€™ll Teach My Children- 2015 Edition
If you want to compare the prior versions you are welcome to click the links above, but you don’t have to because I am including all I said before and the new stuff in the list below.
Yep, it is all inclusive, more or less.
- Laugh, love and learn always and forever.
- Never forget to hold your friends and family close to you.
- A good hug can change your day. Everyone needs a hug. We all need to touch and be held.
- The majority opinion is not always right nor the most moral/ethical.
- Some things are worth fighting for and some are not. The hard part is discerning which is which.
- You can never read too many books but you must always supplement your reading/education by doing.
- Travel and interact with the world around you.
- Learn to speak more than one language.
- Play a team sport and learn how to be a team player.
- Understand that life is a journey and that half the fun is indeed getting there.
- Life is filled with moments, some good and some bad. Just remember this too shall pass.
- If saying goodbye doesnâ€™t hurt than whatever it was probably wasnâ€™t worth much.
- Take pictures of friends, places and loved ones. Theyâ€™ll help preserve some great memories.
- Try not to grow up too quickly. Childhood is but a short time.
- Look for magic.
- Remember that you may not always agree with your parents but they also are looking out for your best interests.
- Disconnect from your electronics for a while and look at the world around you.
- Learn how to read a map. Electronic devices fail or run out of charge.
- Focus on basic math skills so that you are not chained to electronics.
- Exercise your mind and body every day.
- Don’t let fear of failure prevent you from taking chances.
- You should be a realist but don’t let that prevent you from being optimistic about your life.
- You can’t control everything that happens but you can control how you respond. See #23.
- Sometimes stupidity is contagious. Pay attention to where you are at, what you are doing and who you’re with.
- Don’t rely upon luck. Work hard and you’ll create your own opportunities.
