In a texting conversation with my son today, I said a few things that I thought he might want to hear from his old dad.

I said to him:

  • Have fun now, don’t wait until you’re my age
  • Work hard to afford to play hard
  • Don’t do anything to hurt yourself or others and you will SHINE
  • You already have love in your heart, now GIVE IT AWAY, you’ll make more
  • Believe in yourself, believing in yourself is the first step towards happiness
  • Treat others like you want to be treated, ALWAYS, even when you don’t feel like being nice
  • Trust your family, until they give you reason not to
  • Don’t be mean to family, if you don’t want to be around them, they will understand
  • Don’t say yes and mean no, you’ll be miserable
  • You’re an adult, be one
  • Be free
  • Be kind
  • Don’t give expecting anything in return
  • Always say thank you
  • Always say yes ma’am and no ma’am…even up north
  • Save every cent you can for a rainy day, there will be many
  • Enjoy the rain
  • Stare at a flower
  • Marvel at mountains
  • Grow something, water it AND yourself
  • Say God bless you to a stranger
  • Take a walk
  • Stop and look at a tree as though you’ve never seen one before
  • Go out to eat with friends
  • Go out to eat alone
  • People watch
  • Go into poor areas of a city when you get down to appreciate what you have
  • Look in the mirror and smile…at YOU
  • Love yourself
  • When you find a problem with yourself, FIX IT
  • Have someone to talk to when life throws you a curve ball
  • Don’t rent, BUY
  • Learn something new everyday
  • Watch an old cartoon on a Saturday morning
  • Turn music up loud
  • Listen to people, even when they aren’t talking
  • Don’t think of what you’re going to say before the other person finishes, you’ll miss something
  • Hold a baby
  • Look at old pictures
  • Buy yourself something every now and then even if you can’t afford it

Just be HAPPY!  It’s FREE!
