My mom, Myrna, turned 60 on July 1 and she posted this on her Facebook wall as her “attempt at life coaching” as she put it:
Lessons learned… (Unsolicited advice, whatever you may want to call it, may not be original, but believe you me, take it from From someone who just turned 60 (I feel I’m entitled to this.. Hehehhe) ..Might have been a bit late for me to learn them,but you could sure use some if not most
Be nice, just be nice…smile, say something positive, say hi, hello sincerely, acknowledge someone’s presence, kahit eye contact lang…you’ll never know how much hope or encouragement that simple act of caring could comfort or encourage the next person, or make a difference
It is always never late to be what you could or might be or achieve what you could (forgot who said this)… So, dream on… And don’t stop working for that dream! Go, girl!
Don’t sweat the small stuff… But to do this, dapat linawin at maintindihan natin kung ano talaga ang “huge stuff” or what really matters.
Dahan dahan lang tayo sa panlalalait or judging or condemning.. we have no idea what the next person has been or is going through…
Spend a lot of time with your parents, while they’re still with you…. Pag wala na sila, kahit gaano karami ng time to spare ka, or money to spend for them, wala nang saysay…
Don’t stop reading and learning… Save up money to travel…
Give, pay forward, support, inspire, encourage…sabi nga, in the grand scheme of things, we need one another’s help and we haVe the moral obligation to help each other out.
Let’s practice humility… Mas magaan ang buhay at mas maraming gustong tumulong sa atin pag hindi tayo mayabang.
There… My best attempt at being a life coach…Love u all! God bless
Love you, Mama! Thank you for this. As you know, humility is my life long battle but hopefully, I am achieving it… kaya ko yan! Hahaha! Ang yabang pa rin!!! 🙂
