A grandmother is like a special blend of a parent, teacher and a best friend. I am still inspired to notice the good things in life when I remember the way my grandma would pause at those good moments and say, “This, now, this is good.”

A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realize how blessed you are.

What phrases do you say each day to your children / grandchildren?

Which ones do you want them to remember?

For your children

If you’re thankful, show it
If you love someone, tell them
If you’re wrong, fess up
If you’re confused, ask??
If you learn something, teach others
If you are stuck, ask for help
If you made a mistake, apologize
If you trip, get back up
If someone needs help, help them
If you see wrong, take a stance

Look at the doughnut not the hole

Smile, it makes people wonder what you are thinking.

And nature is the best teacher.

Your thoughts spread energy; choose happy energy.

If you stay true to what you really want to do, then you will find ways to make it happen.

Big dreams work on big magic.

“Winning doesn’t always mean being first. Winning means you’re doing better than you’ve done before. ” – Bonnie Blair

The only competition you should have is with yourself. When you go to bed tonight, look back on the day you had and see if you are proud of the way you showed up in every experience.

If you are not, then work on being a better version of yourself tomorrow.

You were not made to hide or to be invisible.

We simply need to decide we are going to, and be brave while we do.

The greatest thinkers, artists, musicians, and engineers through time sure didn’t fit in, did they?
