Over the years, I have gathered different sayings that really put into perspective what I want my kids to know.  I thought I would share them with you.

Words of Wisdom

  • If nothing else, always be kind.  There is no better way to show good character and strength in who you are.
  • Enjoy life and always live life to the fullest.  You only get one life, so live it up.
  • Don’t lose sight of who you are to please others.
  • Create the life you want.  You are responsible for what you end up doing.
  • Live your dream no matter what other people may think.  Don’t be apologetic for it.
  • No matter what other people say, as long as you did your best and can look yourself in the mirror, you’re doing better than most.
  • Take a risk and go after your dreams.  You don’t want to look back and regret not taking advantage of those moments when you could have taken the leap.
  • Be honest.  Lying gets you no where but miserable.
  • Realize that everyone who walks through your life is there to teach you something.  It might be good or bad, but you will be wiser for seeing a lesson in the experience.
  • When in a relationship, whether with a significant other or a friendship, don’t ever make excuses for someone’s bad treatment of you.  There is never a reason for someone to make you feel less than another. If anyone ever touches you in an inappropriate way, don’t second guess yourself.  Leave that relationship!!!
  • Words have power.  Use them with care.
  • You can have anything in life you want.  If you don’t get it, you didn’t want it badly enough to work hard enough for it.
  • Forgive those who make a mistake, but not those who take advantage of your forgiving nature.
  • Be the person you want people to think you are.  Do what you want to be remembered for.
  • No matter how bad your life is, there is someone out there who has it worse.  Be thankful for what you do have.
  • You can always reinvent yourself.  Age doesn’t matter, it’s only a number.

  4. Good advice. Positive learned behaviors, will determine future adult behaviors. Without proper guidance, children, left to themselves, will grow up to be, misguided fools, with little, or no self value. When I became an adult, I decided right then and there, that I would never bring shame to the Velazquez name. This decision was based on the upbringing that my wonderful, and gracious parents, provided for us, their children. Blessings.
