Daily Prompt: Letter to My Future Grandkids

Daily Post: Back to the Future A service has been invented through which you can send messages to people in the future. To whom would you send something, and what would you write?
Advice

Dear my grandkids and great grand kids

I am not that old yet, and certainly not that wise, but I do have some tidbits of advice to pass along.

Technology will change; the way things are done, and jobs you hold, but one thing will not change, relationships. Cherish relationships and be good to your friends and family.

Pick a good mate. Pick a partner that you will laugh and have fun with. With any luck you will spend many years with your partner, so be with someone you truly like and, with whom you have common interests.

Be a duck, but not a doormat. Let things roll off your back, but don’t let people walk all over you. It can be tricky to balance, but keep trying.

Go for it! Be brave enough to go for what you want. Obstacles are meant to jump over, not to derail you.

Believe in yourself, you are the driver of your life, you come from good genes (trust me!) and you CAN do it.

The world is a big place. Do yourself a favour and explore the earth and its wonderful people, landscapes and cultures.

Finally, practice altruism. Be kind to people, expecting nothing in return. But in reality you will get so much back, (I am not sure why), it just works that way.

With Lots of Love,
Your Grandma/Great Grandma
