Lifes little lessons.....Advice for your children

What advice will you pass on to your kids about life and marriage?
These are mine:
1.Look past the outer shell (there is so much more inside)
2.Follow your gut not your heart (we were all blessed with intuition for a reason, use it)
3.GET A COLLEGE EDUCATION!(as a teen my employer stressed this but I did not listen, BIG mistake)
4.Be honest and fair in all you do(this is something that noone can take away and it will speak tons about you)
5.Be punctual (very big asset)
6.Always do your best but accept failure as lesson learned.
7.Live life to the fullest because tomorrow may never come.
8.Treat others the way you want to be treated.

Don't judge others based on hearsay. JUDGE them for yourself after you get to know them.

Corrollary: Do not a gossiper be.

2. Do unto others...

Life's a journey and not a destination. Don't wait to have fun and be yourself.

ALways have a job and be able to support yourself. Don't be dependent on anyone for your material needs.

Who you decide to marry will play a large part in what kind of life you have.

Your most precious possesion is your reputation, don't spoil it.

Live your life so you can be proud of who you are, and what you've done.

Get a college education!

You will marry a family, not just the girl.
Look at her heart,not the package.

I suppose I could go on and on but these come to mind quickly.

How to condense a childhood of learning into a few lessons? Sorry I can't do it. I think my best bet is let my children spend a lot of time with my Father. He's a great teacher and a good man.

Oh, I forgot a good one...

You are judged by the company that you keep.

learned the hard way...

marry someone you like and respect as a person - lasts long after the heat of passion wanes and those little worrying thoughts about parts of your partner's character start to grow.

don't ever stay with anyone who doesn't think you're the greatest thing since sliced bread. not that your partner shouldn't know that you have flaws, we all do, but your flaws should be seen as part of the whole of you and just part of what makes you human.

If the answer to a question is "I don't know" then the answer is NO. (Should I marry him..I don't know --NO, that type of thing)

In a relationship you have to ask yourself..does it feel good more than it feels bad (emotionally). If the answer is NO, then it's time to get out of the relationship.

Keep your mouth shut and your ears open.

Never say a negative thing about anyone.

First impressions are usually right, NEVER issue an ultimatium tht you can't or won't carry out. You are who you make yourself not who your parents want you to be. Happiness is more important than riches. Remain true to yourself and yours. Keep the little guy who is feeding negative thoughts at bay. Two wrongs don't make a right.
