The revision…

The sun sets on another day…

Today is amazing, and a testament to all who enjoy the moment and the day. Tomorrow, well, tomorrow is a great day too, but it is not here yet, so I will enjoy my sunset and smile at the passing into night.

Wow, I think I bit off a bit more than I normally want to chew. I have been going through a list posted by a friend and revising, considering, and making a list I can believe in for all children. not just daughters. I think both sons and daughters face similar issues, and they need to have guidance. So here goes my shot at the list:

  • It’s ok to cry, and feel, and get mad, but when you are done, clean up and stand up.
  • Seek out the people and places that resonate with your soul.
  • Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
  • Apply the 5-second rule. It’s just dirt. There are worse things in a fast food cheeseburger.
  • You define you, no one else makes you who you are. 
  • Happiness is not a permanent state. Wholeness is. Don’t confuse these.
  • Never walk through an alley alone.
  • Be only as nice as you need to be without compromising yourself.
  • Can’t is a cop out.
  • Hold your heroes to a high standard, then be that hero!
  • If you can’t smile with all you are, don’t smile. Insincerity is nothing to aspire to.
  • Don’t let anything keep you from trying, press the envelope, expect more from yourself, and find your way.
  • Never lie to yourself.
  • Your body, your rules.
  • If you have an opinion, you better know why.
  • Practice your passions.
  • Ask for what you want, the worst they can say is no.
  • Wish on stars and dandelions, then get to work to make them happen.
  • Stay who you are.
  • Be passionate with more than people.
  • Never be afraid to fall in love, but be in love with yourself more than anything else
  • Say Please, Thank You, and Pardon Me, whenever the situation warrants it.
  • Reserve “I’m sorry” for when you truly are.
  • Naps are for everyone!
  • It is your right to question everything.
  • You have enough, you are enough, challenge yourself to be more.
  • You are amazing, surround yourself with other people who are amazing!
  • No matter where you are, you can always come home.
  • Family is everything you are, be happy with you you are and who they are too!
  • Say what you mean and mean what you say.
  •  I hope you find someone who loves you greater than the sum of the love I feel for you, with a passion greater than I have ever felt.
  • Be kind; treat others how you would like them to treat you.
  • If in doubt, remember who you are and do what I would do, find a way.

So, as the sun sets on this long series of days, I know, I know, it was a long list. My fault. It was good to read, good to consider, and maybe now I can move on to well, more of the same. I hope you are all havig fun and enjoying every day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy your children…
