18 legendary lessons that I learned and a chance to win a #McGOLDCard #AD


This is a sponsored post.

This week my mom has been on my mind. She is 80 now and many of her friends are not as mobile as they use to be. What I love the most about my mother is her love for other people. She is a hero in my life and legendary in the community I grew up in. If she saw people in need she did everything in her power to help them have a better quality of life.

18 lessons I learned from my mother

Here are 18 legendary lessons that I learned from my mother and I want my daughters to learn from me:

  1. Conquer the world because you can – You choose your own destiny, not me, your father, or anyone else; you determine what you want your life to be like.
  2. Beauty is on the inside –An intelligent girl is far more beautiful than one who is not.
  3. Your appearance is a reflection of what you think of your inner self.
  4. Your actions have consequences – I would love to shield you from all hurt and pain, but mistakes will be made and that’s OK, just evaluate every decision you make before you decide to act.
  5. Never stop learning because the world will constantly change.
  6. You are my hero – although I’m the mom and had many years on this earth, I love the way you see the world. I love your zeal to explore new things and help others.
  7. Never lose your imagination. Be fearless and take calculated risks.
  8. Be compassionate – Never be too busy that you forget about the needs of others.
  9. Let no one else determine what success means in your life, but you. Be proud to be the person you are. Plan out your future and step-by-step, become the person you were meant to be.
  10. Your attitude matters –Even though you may encounter obstacles, remain levelheaded and patient.
  11. Lead by example. You are a natural born leader; take that responsibility seriously by owning it. Seek knowledge and be willing to listen to wise instruction when necessary.
  12. Learn from the mistakes you see around you.
  13. Always dream. You will never get bored with life if you are always pushing to achieve your goals.
  14. It is important to treat people the way you would like to be treated.
  15. Education is not an option. As Grandma always says, “Learn, baby learn.”
  16. Dare to be different. You are brilliant, follow the rules, but it is OK to chart a new path.
  17. Always be willing to refine your character as needed. This will take a lifetime.
  18. Never forget me. I would give you the world if I could, but instead, I have taught how to successfully navigate this world. Don’t forget the lessons I have instilled within you.
