This is what I am going to teach my kid about life basically.
1. Appreciate Life
Feel and be grateful and thankful that you are able to wake up well and sound each morning. I guess you have read of cases where people just go away in their sleep. Life is wonderful and learn to be like your child past. Explore and be inquisitive about life. There are many things we can learn in life each day. Make the most of each day as once it passes, you can't get it back anymore. Be open-minded in a positive way. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
2. Enjoy Life
Spend time out to see the beauty of the world around you. There are beautiful places in our midst for us to discover. Get out of your city and town whenever possible and hit for the woods and mountains. Smell the nature and watch the sunrise with your loved ones. Soak up what Mother Earth is giving us with delight. Also, learn to live in the present moment and cherish it. Don’t live in the past or the future.
Whatever happens, always think of the positive side. There are always 2 sides to a coin. It's up to you to think which side you want to think about. Practise positive spiritual affirmations so that good things will come into your life in time.
Everyone is fully responsible for his or her own life. You cannot blame someone when the course of your life goes astray. Admit mistake when you know you have done wrongly. People will forgive you.
