I was going through the notes app in my iPhone the other day and found some electronic notes my eight year old took at a school function a few months ago.
He is ever the optimist my son and is always pretty up beat about things, but he really hit the mark here on his six rules to live by;
- Never give up to achieve your goals
- Help each other
- Love each other
- Think about others
- Look for help
- Try new things
The one I hear a lot from him is never give up. If he hears it in a movie he’ll respond with “that’s what they teach me at school”.
So today … no matter how tired I am, how stressed or how disappointed I am in the people around me, I promise to never give up.
