It’s no secret that you older you get, the wiser you get.
And as grandparents, we have so much experience and wisdom built up that we want to pass along to that next generation. It’s just one of our many important jobs and something only we can give. Check out seven meaningful pearls of wisdom for our grandchildren to live by!
“Do unto others as you would like them to do to you”
It’s really that simple. First and foremost, treat others the way you would want to be treated. You never know what battles someone may be facing, and a little kindness can go a long way.
“What you put out into the world will come back to you ten-fold… good or bad”
This is so true. Whether you believe in such a thing as karma or not, the energy you put into something will breed results. A positive or negative outlook is bound to determine how you feel the rest of the day.
“Everyday is an opportunity to be better than the day before”
You can’t dwell on the past. Mistakes have been made, and we are human. We have to forgive ourselves and put our best foot forward. We can’t change the past, but we can change the future!
“Always be true to yourself”
Be honest with yourself about who you are and don’t worry about living up to someone else’s expectations. This life is a marathon and not a race, and things happen at different times for all of us.
“Embrace all kinds of people into your life”
You may have more in common with them than you think. And if not, finding out what makes other people tick can be a tremendous learning experience and perhaps even tell you something about yourself you didn’t realize!
“Don’t be judgmental”
Keep an open mind. What works for you may not work for someone else and vice versa. Until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes…
“Good manners don’t cost a thing”
Practice good manners and make an impression. It’s free! And the return on this investment will pay dividends in your life.
These seven timeless quotes to live by will surely set the grandchildren on the right course in life from the very beginning. What do you think? Was anything important left out of the video? Either way, I’ll take this as a good opportunity to remind myself to practice what I preach!
