  • Always wear clean underwear in case you are involved in an accident!

  • I’ve been asked this before and not one single things come to mind. Bad memory?? I’m not sure

  • Try not to sweat over the small stuff too much!

  • The here and now is called the present.
    Get it. Present. A gift. We really are blessed to have each moment. Cherish it and make it count.

  • “Don’t you dare have bloody kids!” My mother in law. Of course I didn’t listen and of course she loves her grandkids!

  • Treat others how you want to be treated – from my Mum.
    It’s a wonderful piece of advice that I have lived by since I was a child.
    I plan to pass it along to my children as well.

  • You’re smart enough to be anything you want, go as far as you can with school……… And I ignored it :(

  • As a new mum everyone offers advice, a good friend who is a midwife said to take everything with a grain of salt, it’s nice to get advice but at the end of the day go with your own gut and remember that every baby is different and everyone has different ideas of how to raise their own children :) great advice I thought :)

  • The dentist. Yesterday is the past, tomorrow is a mystery and today is a present

  • Don’t judge other’s and be kind to one another :)

  • Live every day as if it’s your last!

  • treat others how you would like to be treated

  • Do not expect other people to treat you in the same way as you treat others .

  • life is short, be happy

  • Always look for the best in people as the first time you meet them you may not meeting the real them. until you get past the walls people have built around them due to the pain they have had in their lives. By my mum. I have found this to be so true the coldest or most distant people can have a heart of gold you just have to know them before you judge them.
