I promise to be standing right in front you, cheering and shouting the best I could whenever you’re on-stage. I will be supportive.
The relationship you have when you’re dating is nothing like the one you have after you have kids.
So if you’re someone who is known to ask women why they don’t have kids please just stop. You may think it’s a harmless question, and to some women it certainly can be, but that’s not always the case.
Stop judging people. When you judge someone, not only you pinpoint a flaw in them, you depict your imperfections as well. Your kid might reciprocate your behavior and will consider themselves superior to everyone else
Today, watching this boy, a bold reminder of an answer I had in college resurfaces. Someone had asked me “Why do you want to teach special ed?” My reply resounds with me in this moment. “The reality is, to make a real difference for just one student, is enough reason for all of the trouble.”
I immediately laid eyes upon the old man who had been in the casket, up on his feet staggering in my direction like a zombie, just about 10 feet behind me. His yellow eyes shined like a cat’s in the night and his mouth slowly dropped open as he finished another clumsy step in my direction.
Ask each other the tough kid questions.
I want them to come home completely devastated, because some guy or girl shattered their heart. Then I want them to come back from that experience and love someone else again, even more than the person prior.
Date someone who doesn’t mind letting a little girl paint his nails or try to put his hair in pigtails.
I said, “You’re only 14 so if you get good at poker, you won’t need to go to college. If you get really good at this, you’ll always find ways to survive.”
