Things My Mother Taught Me

1) You can do anything. Anything.

2) Last minute check as you leave the house; purse, keys, lipstick. This was before mobiles were glued to our sides.

3) Independence was the quality most valued. Take responsibilty for yourself and don't rely on others.

4) Follow your dream (links to number 1). Nothing is out of your grasp.

5) Women can do it on their own.

6) Have high expectations of yourself and those around you. Don't settle.

7) It is ok not to fit the mold that everyone wants you to. Work out what works best for you.

8) Marriage isn't forever but that's ok.

9) Have children later in life if you have the choice.

10) Accessories matter.
