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 an infinite 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.

  1. Surround yourself with people who make you a better you
  2. It’s okay to make mistakes as long as you learn from them.
  3. The most precious jewels you’ll ever have around your neck are the arms of your children.
  4. Women can mow the grass, pound a nail, clean the gutters, and well, pretty much everything a man can do.
  5. Burying your feelings doesn’t help, it just starts a pile.
  6. Sometimes bad things happen to good people and sometimes good things happen to bad people.
  7. Just because someone is good, doesn’t mean they’re good for you
  8. Lying about your mistake is worse than making the mistake itself. It just makes 2 mistakes.
  9. Grudges are pointless. Make your peace then move on.
  10. Be confident in your choices and humble in your successes.
  11. Stand up for what you believe in.
  12. You’re never too old to need your mom.
  13. Know when to laugh at yourself.
  14. Choose your battles wisely.
  15. Trust your gut and do what you believe is right for your child.
  16. Be the first teacher your child will have… And the best, since no one will ever be as attuned to their early needs and abilities as you.
  17. Every moment is not going to be sunshine and roses.
  18. No matter where you go or what happens, you can always come home
  19. Always be able to go with the flow.
  20. Admit when those things are a bust.
  21. Don’t be afraid to try new things.
  22. The hardest decisions are the ones that change your life – don’t feel like you have to make them alone.
  23. Hugs are the first step to solving any problem.
  24. Don’t be afraid of being the only hand raised.
  25. Stay close to your siblings – they know you like no friend ever will.
  26. Sleeping past 8:30 is a waste of good daylight.
  27. True friendship is about quality, not quantity.
  28. Support the people close to you by simply showing up.
  29. Your home should always have an open door.
  30. Hard work and self-belief will always earn you success.
