Hallmark Wisdom~Audrey

I originally had ideas for my birthday blog, discussing goals and where I am in my life. Instead, I want to share you the next to the Birthday card my grandmother sent me. Once I read that, I wasn’t worried about any old goals and contemplated on the good things in
my life.

Life Legacies
Thoughts for my granddaughter on her birthday

Live Deep
Never stop learning, playing or finding wonder in the world around you.
Live the length of your life, but live the depth of it as well.

Travel Light
There is no use carrying around worry and regret.
They only weigh you down.
Always keep yourself open to hope and love.
They give us wings.

Forgive Imperfections
In yourself and others.
Imperfections keep things interesting.
They’re the cracks where the light shines through.

Own Beautiful Things
And not just to keep in the drawer, tucked away for a perfect day.
Surround yourself with things that make you happy, that remind you of the beauty all around us if we only keep our eyes open to it.

Make Mistakes
Follow detours.
Sometimes it takes an unexpected turn to help us find the life that is waiting for us around the bend.
Trust yourself and the path that is meant for you.

Take Care of Yourself
And sometimes that means you need the ice cream.
Be good to your body, but also your mind and spirit.
You’re the only one who can.

And Always…
Always know that you are loved.
You are a gift to this world and a blessing to me.
And that will never change.
s waiting for us around the bend.
Trust yourself and the path that is meant for you.

Take Care of Yourself
And sometimes that means you need the ice cream.
Be good to your body, but also your mind and spirit.
You’re the only one who can.

And Always…
Always know that you are loved.
You are a gift to this world and a blessing to me.
And that will never change.
