I happened to see someone on twitter writing a list of Rules for my Sons and I thought maybe I should do a list of reminders for my daughters.
Here it goes…
Do the right thing, even if nobody is looking.
Never ever take any form of drugs that impair your ability to think clearly.
Always be early to a meeting, never let someone wait for you!
Hold your liquor well and never get drunk. Or better don’t drink (refer to rule 2.)
For your first investment, buy your own house. For the second, think wisely.
Do not borrow money for frivolous purchase.
When entrusted with a secret, keep it.
Hold your heroes to a higher standard or better idolise the dead ones.
When you loan someone money, treat it as a gift, never expect it to be returned.
Return a borrowed item promptly and in good condition.
Eat adequately to nourish the body and not excessively. Always eat to 70% full.
Be always curious, learning makes your life more colourful.
If you need music on the beach, you're not enjoying the moment.
Always be prepared for all your work.
Choosing the right person to marry is the single most important decision in your life.
Also remember that when you marry and you marry the whole family.
Be like a duck. Remain calm on the surface and paddle like crazy underneath.
Be slow to anger and quick to forget and forgive.
Sleep, Exercise and Eating (SEE) well is the foundation of a good life.
Don’t complain, just work hard and make the things better.
It is better to give than take as it meant that you are in the position to give.
Write your own eulogy and you know where you are heading.
Do not to engage in lies, a small leak could sink a great ship.
When exercising, work on Strength, Agility, Flexibility and Endurance (SAFE).
Be grateful and give thanks to people around you. It makes everyone happy.
I think I can go on forever but 25 seems long enough for me to sound like a nag.
I love you girls and hope that you all will chance upon this when I return to the universe.
