30 Life Lessons I Learned From My Mom

The moment I look at my little girl, I ultimately understand now how my mother felt about me plus I feel soooo lucky… You never understand just how much you have learned from your mom until you stop and apprehend she’s very much the backbone of all your values, habits and idiosyncrasies. You also by no means realize how little you might do to truly say satisfactory ‘Thank you’ for all the stupid things you put her through while growing up. From the errands, you didn’t feel like doing to the clothes you didn’t feel like wearing to the prohibitions and bans you didn’t want to obey!!! However, you have begun to get it now.

I stepped into the thirties this year (and soon I’ll be thirty one in January) and as a new mom, I now reflect a great deal about all the wonderful influence my own MAA has had in my life. There is infinity number of lessons she taught me over the years without even knowing it, just by setting a paradigm of the loving and kind woman she is. I tried to make this list of thirty (yes!!! you guessed it right.. I am thirty and so is the number of those lessons) which hold wisdom I can only hope to pass along to my baby over the period of time as well.
