A KID THAT I AM

7:00:00 PM



"Once I was seven years old. My momma told me 'go, make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely'." 

I relate to that lyric of Luke Graham's song. Except I wasn't seven, I was thirteen and a freshmen in junior high school. And it wasn't my momma, it was my dad. And the message wasn't to go make friends, it was to put responsibility and punctuality ahead of social agenda.

My father is a very disciplined guy, and he made sure his three kids take after that trait. That moment when he was furious to find out that I wasn't home when he came back from work because I wondered off to my new high school friend's house without telling him really took me aback, as well as several other incidents where I had promised him I'd be home at a certain hour and only reached home several minutes after such hour, which is his biggest pet peeve. But growing up, I keep finding that punctuality and responsibility are traits that are hard to come by. My father is much more lenient now that the kids have grown up, and my husband has taken me under his wings, I am grateful for his lessons and his ways of teaching them to me. I would consider that's the best life advice I've ever had.

Tell me, what's the best advice someone has ever given you?

  14. Dad's always give great advice! I think the best piece of advice I have received is to do what makes you happy. I used to think that money and fancy careers were the end goal, but pursuing them never made my happy. Now, whatever it is that it takes, I just want to be happy. Even if that means just living a good life in a small cottage. :)

  16. First of all gorgeous outfit! And dads have always great advice to give to their children. I think the best advice given to me is from my grandma, always wear lipstick even if you don't feel like it. I guess putting on lipstick is a mood booster even if you feel crap.
