    Words of wisdom from my mom.

    Early Life Lessons

    Growing up in the small town of Visalia, California in the 1960’s & 70’s, my mother imparted numerous words of wisdom that have stayed with me throughout my life. These invaluable lessons shaped my character and guided me through both triumphs and challenges. I’d like to share with you three fundamental teachings from my mother: the power of kindness, the importance of hard work, and embracing change.

    The Power of Kindness

    My mother always emphasized the significance of kindness in our interactions with others. She believed that a simple act of kindness could make a profound difference in someone’s day, and ultimately, in their life. Whether it was a smile, a helping hand, or a kind word, she showed me that compassion and empathy were essential qualities to have. She would say, “Kindness is like a gentle ripple that spreads far beyond its initial impact. You never know how far one good deed may travel.”

    The Importance of Hard Work

    Words of wisdom from my mom

    From an early age, my mother instilled in me the value of hard work. She taught me that success doesn’t come to those who wait for it, but to those who actively pursue it with dedication and perseverance. Through her own example, as a Kindergarten teacher for 35+ years, she showed me that hard work is not only about achieving material success but also about personal growth and fulfillment. It is through hard work that we develop resilience, determination, and a strong work ethic that can keep us focused on our goals.

    Embracing Change

    Change, my mother would say, is an inevitable part of life. Rather than resisting it, she taught me to try and embrace change with an open mind and a positive attitude. She believed that change brought new opportunities to learn and to grow, and that by adapting to change, we can navigate life’s twists and turns more effectively. Embracing change is not always easy, but my mother taught me to view it as an adventure, a chance to explore new territories and discover our true potential.

    As I reflect on these early life lessons, I am grateful for the wisdom my mother imparted. The power of kindness, the importance of hard work, and embracing change have become guiding principles in my own life. I hope that by sharing these lessons with you, they can inspire you to incorporate them into your own journey toward personal and professional growth.
