Topic: "The most important lesson"
One of the many lessons that I am trying to pass on to Lexi, my teenage daughter, is to "Remember Who You Are". While visiting my grandmas house, my grandma would pass on the rules and advice before we walked out the door. There were two that have always stuck with me. Remember who you are & let the boys be the persuers. Both of which I have passed onto Lexi . . . whether she likes it or not!
The most important to me is remember who you are. It's important to stay true to yourself, to your values and morals. I tell Lexi that even though she doesn't like to think she is an example for anyone, she is. People will be watching, whether it be her peers from school or more importantly, her younger siblings and cousins.
When Lexi starts to slip up, I like to use the Brooke Shields funnyordie clip theme for her, "You better check yourself, before you wreck yourself".
Seems fitting for her sometimes (not the video, just the phrase).
