Never put more on your credit card than you can afford to pay off at the end of the month!

One of the most important pieces of advice that I tell my daughter is to be true to herself and never sell herself short. She has been struggling with kids in school with being bullied and has done some things to please others to get them off her back which has caused some problems. Its a little reminder each morning when I drop her off. Just be true to yourself.


I always make sure that my son understands that he can only control himself and not others. If he doesn’t like what others are saying or doing he should walk away. He has plenty of time to learn when to speak up when it’s important.


Be yourself. People need to like you for who you truly are, not who you think they would like.


Live each day to the fullest! I have a friend who has cancer, what a great book to leave her daughter!


Always keep singing! My daughter loves staying up in her bed (with princess mosquito netting!!) and sing-talking to herself and her monkey. I love it!!!

Don’t ever underestimate how important it is to have at least one great girlfriend!


I want my daughter to know that at the end of the day, it is more important to be content with yourself and your choices than to please others. People come and go from our lives, and it’s nice when you can please them, but ultimately, you can’t escape the person in the mirror, and that person is the only one that is always with you.

The best advice I am passing on to my daughter, and someday my.granddaughter, came from my beloved Grandma: when you are angry, write a letter. No matter who it is or what the transgression, write it down. Tell them how you feel and why. Get it all off of your chest. Then tear it all to tiny pieces and throw it away, smile and move on!


My advice for my daughter is … nothing you ever do could make us stop loving you. Love is unconditional.

I could go with something less practical and more emotion-based, but I think the following advice is important in today’s society more than ever:

Proofread those e-mails, or at least count to ten, before you hit send. Sometimes instant gratification isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, whether you’re sending a witty retort or a note of gushy admiration.

This happens to be a first world, last 20 years kind of problem, but if I had followed this advice in my 20s, I could have avoided worlds of chagrin, bruised egos and hurt feelings.
