4 Simple Pieces of Advice Your Mom Might Not Have Given You

Silas & Grace

These pieces of advice aren’t meant to point a finger at mothers for not giving all of the right help their kids might have needed.

Not going to take it there.

No, these are just some tips that I think we all needed to hear growing up, but maybe our moms just didn’t think about them.

And that’s ok. 🙂

Mothers don’t need to think of everything.

But none the less, here are some things I wish I had been told growing up, and some thoughts that might be helpful for you right now. ♥️ 

1. Taking care of your space is taking care of yourself.

I think it’s so easy to feel like you just don’t have the time to keep your room or your home clean.

It kind of feels like the chore our parents scolded us over, and for obvious reasons.

But in the end, it’s not just about looking good, it’s also about taking care of your mental and emotional health.

It’s about showing yourself some love and self-respect because you deserve to live in a clean home that makes you feel calm. One you like existing in.

2. What you’re building up now is what your future self will live in.

It’s hard to get out of our heads and see how the bad habits we have now will affect us in the future.

I’ve learned this so many times, all those things that felt so small added up in a huge way once I became an adult.

So take some time and start to think through what beliefs and habits are building a home that you don’t want to live in once it’s finished.

3. Find a way to finance your dreams.

It felt like everyone’s parents had the same thing to say, “You can be anything when you grow up.”

It’s not a bad thing to think or believe.

But I also think that encouraging yourself to find a way to make a good income so that you can more quickly live your dreams, and do the things that make you happy, is a great idea.

It’s not just, will I either do what I love or will I work a job I hate?

Sometimes, it’s just finding a well paying job that you don’t mind, and that can help you pay for the things you really want to do in life. 🙂

4. Don’t live your life based on another person’s opinion.

It’s your life, you get to decide what it looks like.

Don’t base what you want, what you think, or what you believe based off of trying to impress people who don’t care about you.

They’re not even thinking about you when you’re thinking about them, so why give them the time of day?

Also, you don’t need to keep on trying to impress people that aren’t in your life anymore.

Be mindful to get rid of anything that doesn’t really fulfill you and live out a life that you’re actually happy in.

I hope these simple pieces of motherly advice were helpful to you.

I know that it can feel overwhelming when you’re on your own and things don’t look like how you wanted them to.

But it’s going to be ok, you’re going to be ok, and you’re going to figure it out. ♥️
