What is the best advice your mom ever gave you? Growing up, and still today, my mom has always told me:
Do what makes you happy.
Listening to Mom
After 5 kids, I have learned that listening to mom means more than it did before. In essence, I am asking each of them to listen to me. Of course, as the mom, that means I do not know anything about being a child or teenager is today’s works. You know how it goes. They know everything.
I remind my children daily that I love them. That I want them to succeed in life. Go far. Make a change. Be someone who cares about others and does great things. I mean, a mom can dream, right? My favorite quote to share with my kids is:
You were born an original. Don’t die a copy.
I also share wisdom I have learned along the way. Simple things like how to open a stubborn jar or turning off lights to save energy. But, I also teach them important life lessons such as eating well and drinking water. They often tire of having me stick a bottle of water in their face while we are out. Yet they willingly drink and stay hydrated in the Texas heat. I consider it a job well done.
Nestlé® Pure Life® is once again involved in the Hydration Movement. They are asking their Facebook fans to take a quick online pledge to simply drink more water. Plus, you can enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win prizes that include $200 to your local water park!
