Mother’s Day is just around the corner. So I’m taking this time to remember 3 important tips I received from my mom.
3 Important Tips – #1: Be wise in your relationships.
Just because you’re right doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be the first one to say “sorry” and that you should never give way for the other person. Sometimes you concede because you love them. This is one of the tips that’s quite a challenge for me especially because I’m a bit hard-headed. But it helps to remind myself that I love this person. This advice doesn’t only apply to spouses though.
3 Important Tips – #2: Be wise in raising your son.
No one is ever born a parent. No one gets into the parenting life knowing every single thing there is to know about how to take care of kids and how to raise them to become a good person. You will make mistakes. But just always try to learn from those mistakes.
3 Important Tips – #3: Be wise with your money.
I realized that being wise with money doesn’t necessarily mean not spending a lot. Being wise means you make sure you’re getting your money’s worth. It’s okay to spend money on items that you know you’re going to use a lot and are of good quality. I’ve bought lots of cheap stuff without taking quality into consideration and I just ended up using the items just once or twice. Take all of those together and you can say I’ve wasted a lot of money!
I thank my mom for giving me these tips because I realize that really I need it. Now I know I’m wiser — or at least I’d like to think I am — because I will always have these to think about. 🙂
