5 Life Lessons From My Childhood

As adults, we all have a few “words of wisdom” that hve been passed down from generations before. I remember some for a few different reasons.

These are 5 lessons that have been bestowed upon me.

***

1. Don’t slouch.

Well into my 30’s, and my mom’s voice still rings in my ears about the risk of looking like Quasimodo.

***

2. Eat your vegetables…

…or you’ll get scurvy. Thanks, Nan. We are no longer vitamin C deficient sailors on a maiden voyage to discover the new land. Also, electricity.

***

3. Wash behind your ears.

This seems like a no-brainer. Why wouldn’t one wash behind their ears? Just sayin’.

***

4. Always wear clean underwear.

Is this really a thing?

***

5. Respect your elders.

This one took me a long time to modify. If an “elder” is being a disrespectful ass, THEY do not deserve respect by default. Respect is earned, no matter what your age.
