One of the best advice my mom gave me was to ALWAYS check to make sure your skirt isn’t tucked into your undies when you leave the bathroom. In all seriousness, my mom taught me to relax and appreciate the simple things in life. While she encouraged me to strive for everything that I could possibly achieve, she didn’t want me to spend my life singularly focused on my next achievement. Instead, she wanted me to enjoy being in the moment and appreciate the simple pleasures of day-to-day life; dinner with friends, vacations with family, watching a breathtaking sunset. In spite of the frenetic pace of our lives, we’ve got to make time to soak it all in and enjoy the ride.
