Do what makes you happy. Don’t push; do things in life in moderation. Be grateful, not just for what you have, but for all the awful things you don’t have. Appreciate the small things, slow down and listen to feel-good music.
These things might seem fundamental, but how many times do we incorporate these life lessons to enrich our own lives? Upon observing my grandmother’s daily routine and attitude toward life, I realized there is so much to be learned from her.
I’m eternally grateful to have her and am honored to call her my grandmother. I thank her for all of the years of kindness, unconditional love, endless faith and motivation and for all she has instilled in me. She is a true gift to the world; especially to me.
