With Mother’s Day around the corner, I thought it would be fun to share some of the “mom’s always right” kind of things she’s said in my life.
I can’t for the life of me keep a secret and my mom always knows what’s up. Anything I do or have done or think, she can read on my face. And she does have the best advice, even if I don’t listen to her the first time around.
I have an older Kate Spade bangle that has “Mom Always Said” and I love this year’s version too. “Mom Said So.”
Things my mom is always right about:
Making your bed every morning
Use sunscreen every day
It will all work out (it usually does!)
Less is more, except for when more is more
No means no
Take two IB
Don’t forget to write a thank you note
A bar of soap can accomplish a lot
Always take the high road
There’s no problem we can’t solve
This too shall pass
Take the most challenging option
Trust the universe
When in doubt, just breathe.
It’s so funny because as I go through life, particularly as I’ve gotten older, I’ll hear my mom’s voice in my head or find myself saying things that she always said. The “this too shall pass” line? I repeat it to myself on the reg. I’ve mentioned before that I’m turning into my mother, but I have to give her credit where credit is due… she knows her stuff.
(Actually, funny story… Remember when the “Sh!t So and So Says” videos were popular? My sister and I were going to do a “Sh!t Meesh Says” video. It’s not so much what my mom says sometimes it’s how she says things.)
What does your mom say that she’s always right about?
