Advice to my un-created son

For just in case I am ever blessed with a little Prince, I have started a list. I wont teach him about the 'birds and the bees', how to shave or even to ride a bike.. that's what Dad will be for.

But below is just a little of what I hope to teach my son one day..

- Don't trust anyone who cant be kind to small children or animals.

- If you ask a girl out, always pay.

-If it is right, it happens—The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.

-If a street performer makes you stop walking, you owe him a buck.

Never cancel dinner plans by text message. Especially with your Mama!

-More times than not, you will be judged by your shoes.

-There is just no good reason to look into a woman's handbag.

-The best way to ruin an apology is with an explanation.

-Women are crazy, irrational, needy and amazingly wonderful creatures.

-Don't ever get drunker than your boss

-Return a borrowed car with a full tank.

-Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.

-On occasion, unplug.

-If you are lucky enough to be invited into a woman's life.. this is a privialge, not a right and you will be there only as long as you deserve to be. Always woo. Always respect. Always cherish.

-Dont ever let your woman/mother mow the lawn.

-If you cant see your shirt cuff, your jacket doesn't fit.

Never shake someone's hand sitting down. Your grandad always told me this, and since he is wise, you should listen.

-Walk tall, kick ass, learn to speak arabic, love music, and never forget you come from a long line of truth seekers, lovers, and warriors.Hunter S. Thompson

-And like I told your sister, Be generous. with your time, your money, your heart. If there was a single lesson I could hope on my best day to impart to you, this would be it.

re: 'if it is right it happens- The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.'

I mostly really like what you write however this got under my skin. I think that good things do get away. I think about lost opportunities in my own life that I let go because I didn't 'seize the day'. I believe the majority of regrets are in relation to inaction. There is times where you should stand back and let it happen, but then there's times that you must do all you can to make it happen. Maybe what you should be teaching this uncreated son is to use wisdom regarding his actions. There's a time to plant and a time to harvest as well as a time to rest.

Thank you for your opinion. Although, through my experience, everything that has happened or not happened to me.. led me to exactly where I am now. Every relationship that has failed, every job that hasn't worked out, every delayed flight, every single thing both good and bad, has brought me to where I stand now. I do understand that life doesn't just happen if you sit on your ass but- we create our fate... but EVERYTHING has a purpose, and if its right, if it's meant to be, if it will teach you something or grow you a little... trust in knowing that it will happen.
