What you should know my daughter:
Tinfoil and the microwave isnt going to fly.
When you put a bag of popcorn in the microwave for 5 minutes, it will explode, and the butter will catch on fire.
If you drop an oven mite in the oven, it too, will catch on fire.
The Check engine light, well it means what it says most of the time.
Dont run over empty boxes in the road, they may not be empty.
Dont drive on a flat tire; ever
AAA â€“ your best friend, get a membership.
When you get any bill, that thing called a -late fee- will happen if not paid.
Commercials for free products if you just call in, always, always, have a catch.
Banks are awful, but you really can't keep the money under your bed.
Dont get drunk on first date, no matter how good of -friends- you were before.
Dont let a guy purpose in the -Dick's sporting goods- parking lot and think you have to say yes.
You deserve to have a guy who treats you nice and with respect.
Dont think that if a guy treats you nice and with respect that it means he wants to marry you.
Be a lady, its not a bad thing to not laugh at crude jokes and not cuss like a sailor. Its not attractive when men do it; its not attractive when a woman does it.
Dont smoke, just dont. Not anything.
Tanning: Do it the summer you are graduating high school, and for your wedding day.
Dont let anyone tell you no, if you want it, you will make a way.
You would be surprised how cheap you can live if you have to, or how many hours in the day you can fill with working if you need the money- hard work pays off.
Dont be afraid of life, don't be stupid either.
Jumping on a moving train- bad idea, going on a spur of the moment road trip to TX, fun!
Cut your hair really short at least once, and grow it to your waist at least once.
Know your true friends; the ones who bring value to your everyday life, all your friends don't have to be close, but know who is in your corner.
Dont be afraid to stand up for yourself, sometimes an honest-no- is better for everyone.
Not everyone will think you are beautiful, but make sure you do.
I want you to be healthy, eat good food, don't drink a lot of soda, it doesn't like a big deal, but you will thank me later.
Dont be afraid to be single, those will be some of the best memories you will make.
Dont be afraid to commit either, commitment can be beautiful.
Keep your self-respect above all, because no matter what other people say or think, you and you alone will have to be able to fall asleep after your decisions of the day.
Know that happiness is a choice and love is fleeting; so grab it when you can and move on when its gone.
Don't replay embarrassing moments in your mind, it’s over, it happened. Release.
When you are happy, genuinely, purely happy, let yourself be.
You don't always have to prepare for the "worst" sometimes, it's the best if you just let it happen.
Keep your chin up, your eyes open and your smile wide.
Now go live life.
| Yeah, good advice for everyone! Like an initiation before you step out into the world. If you don't keep them in mind, life will surprise you. I love it!||| Posted on 2011-05-19 00:00:00 | by Amma | [ Reply to This ] || Such good advise, but don't restrict it to a daughter, sons need to hear it too. |
EVEN if they don't listen the first time, it will be remembered later.
Very good, keep it up.
