#BlogChallenge Day 14

Going Green with the Grizls

Prompt:  Give 15 tips to get through life

This is actually harder than it looks.
1- Don't sweat the small stuff.  Is it really that important that the kids eat the meat before the salad?  I know silly example but it serves its purpose.

2- Choose your battles.  It goes along with number 1.  Choose what you want to battle over with your kids, coworkers, etc.

3-  Take time for you.  Even if it's a few stolen minutes by yourself in the bathroom daily!

4-  Wake up before your kids.

5-  Teach your kids how to help with chores.

6- Going along with number 5 remember that everyone has to learn sometime.  Don't stress if it's not done perfectly to your standards, they'll get there.

7- Teach your children by example.  If you want them to eat healthy, then show them how.

8- Stay active.  As a nurse I can tell you that this is very important.

9- Read.  Reading is a great way to broaden your mind and let yourself explore.

10- Make sure to tell your husband/children you love them.  You never know if it might be your last opportunity.

11- Enjoy life.

12- Don't take life too seriously.  Have fun and laugh often.

13- Have pets.  They lengthen your life and give you a sense of purpose.

14- Do what you enjoy.  It doesn't matter if others don't approve, its not for them!

15- Forgive.  It only hurts you if you don't forgive others.

  1. These are fantastic and probably what I would post myself. Do you mind if I just copy and paste :) (Kidding)
    But I really like them and is what I try and practice with my kids.. especially the chores and not being perfect about it. (My son could never clean his room properly.)
    Anyway thanks for sharing.

  2. Good list...I was trying to think of 15 things I would give but as you say its harder than you think LOL

    Still Dating My Spouse

    The Pitch List

  3. I need to work on number Artist Child beats me to it, every time!

  4. Good stuff!! Since we can't have children, #13 is our lifeline!

  5. Lovely list.. ^^ I love the most 7, 8, 9 n 10.. I havent't got married/having children but these tips i would always remember.. ^_~

  6. I really need to work on #15. When I started writing mine I knew that i would read that on at least one of these lists.
    darn it anyhow (smiling)

  7. I need to work on 1, I find myself worked up on things I shouldn't. At the time an event happens Get so upset it is ridiculous, I calm down afterwards but need to learn to take a breath. I am in a good place with #15.

  8. This is a great list. I need to work harder at #7, in a good way. Our children learn by our example- good or bad.

  9. Great list! Though I have to add,with #13,I think that only works if you have one or two pets. Not 10. I think mine may be shortening my life span. :P

  10. 11. Enjoy life is my simple yet so important.
