Mother Knows Best…

To honour/celebrate Mothers Day that little bit more… here is a list of things our Mothers may have told us as we were growing up that we probably should have heeded the advice of… what do you think? Is there more? 🙂

 

In reality, no homemade or Hallmark card can ever really communicate exactly how much we owe to our mothers, how much we respect and appreciate them after years of ignoring their advice, scorning their tokens of wisdom and hating their presence. After growing up, getting hurt and learning our lessons the hard way, we’ve realized we should have just listened to our mothers the first time.

But we had to learn that way. We had to see for ourselves that nothing is free in this world and good things really do come to those who wait. We had to freeze in short sleeves to learn to bring a jacket and get arrested to learn that nothing good really does happen after 2 am.

So in light of all the lessons we learned the hard way, and to truly express how much we appreciate them, here are all the lessons our mothers taught us that we wished we listened to when we were younger.

If It Seems Too Good To Be True, It Is

There’s No Such Thing As A Free Lunch

Your Looks Aren’t Everything

Being A Good Person Will Get You Further

The Truth Will Always Come Out

Your Health Is More Important

Don’t Go to sleep with wet hair

Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

Patience Is A Virtue

Don’t Burn Your Bridges

Forgive And Forget

Manners Go A Long Way

Always Speak Up

Save Your Money

Money Can’t Buy Happiness

Don’t Worship False Idols

Just Be Yourself

Do It For The Experience
