Raise a Glass to Our Favorite Advice from Mom
They’ve taught us the best way to tuck our sheets and floss our teeth, the right direction to shave our legs, and the smartest way to organize our resumés. Whether at home, in the office, in love, or in fun, mothers always seem to be poised and at the ready with fail-proof advice, and these gems are some of our favorites.
1. Put Your Best Foot Forward
With a positive attitude and a little elbow grease, you really can accomplish anything you want. Just like mom said: if you don’t try, you won’t succeed. Remember that you sparkle – even more than a freshly opened bottle (or cracked can) of Rosé – so don’t be afraid to show off your glitter and go after your goals!
2. Ice Cream Is Always Okay (and Wine, Too, by This Logic)
Celebrating? Need to cheer up? Binge-watching your favorite show on a quiet Saturday night? It sounds like a bowl (or a pint perhaps? no judgment here) of ice cream, a refreshing glass of Chardonnay, or any treat of your choice is in order. Go ahead. Serve yourself an extra scoop, pour a glass of wine, finish that bag of candies; mom said it’s okay.
3. Good Friends Make Life So Much Better
We’re here to thank the moms of the world for continuing to host the late-night sleepovers of giggling girls that grow into opportunities for life-long friendships. There’s nothing better than dancing through life with a built-in support system, a crew of personal stylists, comedians, experts in just about every field, and a pre-filled list of game night guests. What pairs well with good friends? Cupcake Butterkissed Chardonnay – and everything else, of course! –
4. Buy The Shoes
Whether you simply must strut from the store in a new pair of eye-catching strappy sandals or there’s something else that makes you swoon, go after what you want wholeheartedly. In life, you should say yes to what you desire, including the little things (succulent collections and full bookshelves) and big things (travel, careers, and true love) alike.
5. Choose Joy, Always
Look for the rainbows, let the sunshine hit your face, and always laugh easily. Whether you’re sailing through an easy-going day or navigating a patch of choppy water, you can choose happiness, practice gratitude, and make your mama proud of the radiant person she raised.
Mothers give so much – friendship, leg-shaving lessons, heart-felt talks, good times, and love. So, this Mother’s Day and every day, call your mom, tell her you love her, and celebrate all her womanly wisdom by living your life (and filling your glass) to the fullest!
