33 Things

33 Things I want my children to know as they navigate through life(in no particular order):


  1. If you don’t like your situation, CHANGE IT.
  2. Make it your goal to be healthy… not society’s current idea of body perfection.
  3. Don’t look to a man/woman or to me or to any other human to give you a sense of worth. Find your sense of worth within you.
  4. Try new things as often as possible, even if you’re scared.
  5. Be humble but confident.
  6. Never apologize or give excuses for saying NO. Just say it and own it.
  7. Always cheer for the underdog
  8. Trust your gut…it is trying to tell you things. Listen.
  9. Go be you, we will love you whether you are two feet , or 20,000 miles away.
  10. If you choose a man/woman, choose one who treats the people in their life well, who works hard, who is not afraid to show emotions, who makes you laugh, who supports you and finds your ‘crazy’ endearing.
  11. Don’t worry about being popular, just be you
  12. Know that you are always loved and thus never alone.
