Values I Would Like to Pass On To My Children

1. Respect

This is the key to a better life but first, start with you.

We were given an incredible chance to live life the best way we can make sure you take outstanding care of both your body and mind. Then if you show yourself some great respect, respect for others should come easily. By others, I mean your family and friends, people who will cross your path in life.

But also all kinds of living things on Earth: animals, plants, and trees which are all part of this magnificent Nature surrounding us that you will get to know. We are all here because they are. Never forget to show respect for their existence.

  1. Listen

Learn to listen.

Listen to yourself. Trust what you hear inside of you, the music of your heart, the whisper of your Soul when you carefully pay attention. Enjoy the Silence to be able to hear those words of wisdom. Trust your intuition. It is your friend and will always lead you in the right direction.

Listen to others. Listen to what they want to share with you. Listen to their secrets, their dreams, their fear, their pain. If you don’t know what to say or how to help them, just be with them at that moment. Look at them in the eyes, be present and listen carefully. This act will be the most powerful present you can offer them.

  1. Don’t worry, always be happy

You are fearfully and wonderfully made, with a Unique Soul. Don’t let anybody make you believe otherwise. Remember that you come into this life as a human being is a true Miracle. Celebrate it often because you are important.

Generate happiness from yourself! Don’t believe happiness depends on the circumstances or people, it is a state of mind related to the events that occur in your life or what you have. Happiness is something very precious you carry in your DNA; it’s always here with you and for you. Anytime you decide you want to be happy, you can! And you should.

  1. Show gratitude-Say the magic word

‘Thank you”

“He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.” ~ Epictetus

Be thankful and say it as many times as you have the opportunity to. You have so many reasons to show gratitude.

For who you are first.

For what you have and what you own.

For what you were given and what you are taught.

For what you are becoming every day and what you have already achieved.

Also remember to send peaceful and loving thoughts to those around you, people you know or those you have never met who aren’t as lucky as you and might be suffering. You might call it a prayer. I call it sending peaceful thoughts with all my heart. I firmly believe this could really change the World, Your world too!

  1. Be curious

Never stop learning, reading, and traveling. Any chances you have to meet new people, different than you, do it! Be curious about other’s cultures, habits, languages, traditions, and ways of thinking. Especially if there are completely different from yours. It’s the best way to learn, grow and build your own personality.

Share with others what you have learned, and get inspired to inspire others. Be curious your entire life, this is one of the best talents you can have.

Albert Einstein said; “I have no special talents. I am just passionately curious”.

  1. Be Yourself

Don’t copy others, don’t blindly follow.

Never be afraid to ask, and raise questions, even the ones you may qualify as “stupid” ones.

Don’t try to please people.

Follow your heart and your passion, even if that means saying no, having to make difficult choices, or surrounding yourself with different people.

Stay true to yourself, and never lie or cheat on yourself. You are here to accomplish what you came for. Only You know what it is.

Follow your own path, run your own race, and don’t measure yourself or compare with others. You might disappoint some people along the way  maybe us your parents but I am sure we will find the inner strength to get over it and see that as long as you are happy, it’s all that matters! As long as you are not hurting anybody, do what you have to do to become who you were meant to be.

  1. Have Dreams

You will start your life with so many dreams and a strong belief in infinite possibilities. Make sure to hold on tight to them. Don’t let the world that surrounds you make you believe you can’t achieve them. Write about those dreams, every day if you can, with as many details as possible. And before going to bed, close your eyes and visualize what your life will be like once your dreams become real, what your life will look like, who you will be, with whom, and how you will feel.

Remember, your everyday actions will take you closer to your dream. You will have to work for that, sometimes very hard. But the Magic of the Universe will help you as well.

Trust me.

“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it”.

Paulo Coelho

With all mama’s love.
