Ten Things I’ve learnt from my Mother

  1. Don’t complain. There’s someone out there a hundred times more worst of than you. Your healthy, have a full set of fingers and a working brain. You also have loved ones. Be content.
  2. Respect people. Give them the benefit of the doubt.
  3. Say please and thank you. It matters – people do take notice.
  4. Try not to swear. There are more impassioned (and “sexier”) words to describe your feelings.
  5. Read. You don’t even have to finish each book/article/journal. Read to learn.
  6. Write. Nuff’ said.
  7. Speak Good English (or whatever language you speak). It’s representational of your upbringing and how seriously you consider life.
  8. Remove negative elements from your life. They’re a disease.
  9. Stand up for what you believe in. You’ll be happy you did when you’re older. It often inspires more than it creates conflict. You’re not living if you are not making a difference.
  10. Follow your passion. Life is too short.
