I have been thinking about some of my Mum's adages, which I did not appreciate as a kid. In fact, I used to roll my eyes when she offered unsolicited advice. As I enter my crone years I recognize her wisdom.
Here are a few: Good things come in small packages Treat other people as you want to be treated Don't judge a book by its cover Don't give up
I think these are some good thoughts to live one's life by. Parents are the original life coaches. Even C minus parents teach us how we want to live and how we don't want to live.
In today's super-sized hurry up world the adage "Good Things Come In Small Packages" can help us refocus on what's most important. If we take a small break from our routine everyday to breath deeply, and focus on what's important we can set small doable goals that will slowly but surely lead us into our best life.
