Updated: Apr 8

In this article, a mother provides 60 life lessons she hopes to teach her child.


I love my son so infinitely much, more than words could ever express, as I like to think all of you parents who do read this can relate to your own child(ren). Yet, if it is words that we can relate to, sayings that we can read and inspire us and motivate us to live life to the fullest; than I would love to share the words that has changed me and my life for the better. I dedicate this post to my precious, sweet son who has been the greatest student, teacher and inspiration to me. Being a mother has changed me in ways that I never thought was possible. Not only is it like any other love I have ever experienced, it makes me want to share every word of wisdom and knowledge to my son that I have learn(ed) and practice(d). I find life to be so much easier when I have some guidance along my way and so here is:

What I hope to teach my child as he grows (and it stay with him and he understands it and applies it throughout his life):

  1. Always be yourself. Always.

  2. Be true to yourself too.

  3. If you fall, pick yourself back up.

  4. Believe in yourself – you can achieve and accomplish anything (as long as you put action into you) because you can Kreate What U Want.

  5. See everything as a blessing (even the ‘hurdles’ and ‘obstacles’ in life have something to teach us) because in each moment is a chance for us to learn and grow.

  6. Be kind: Be kind to yourself. Be kind to others and everything, especially nature too.

  7. Love yourself. You are worthy. You are valuable. You are beautiful.

  8. There are ups and downs in life, all we can do is find and focus on the good (there IS good in everything) …so sit back and enjoy the ride.

  9. Do what you love, love what you do.

  10. Treat others the way you want to be treated.

  11. Laugh. Laugh as much as you can and as hard as you can.

  12. Always make time for YOU. Alone time every-so-often and/or everyday for meditation is necessary and very good for your well-being.

  13. Have fun and play. Be silly. Be weird. Keep that inner child alive… you are never too old or too young to do what you are drawn to. “We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.” -Robert Fulghum

  14. Continue to be curious and asks questions. Keep asking away! Question Everything.

  15. If it doesn’t feel good or right to you, it probably isn’t.

  16. Listen to your body and your heart ~ It knows better than anyone else.

  17. Be aware, conscious and observant in each moment.

  18. Do what you are drawn to - Always.
