1. For all the times I ignored your advice:

Growing up, we often ignore the advice from our mum. We may think their opinion is out dated or they do not understand the situation. Therefore, this open letter shows that there is probably a point in your life where you didn’t ask her opinion or advise on something as you thought you knew best. Looking back, having your mum’s opinion, the person who probably knows the best thing for you, would have been thrilled to have you ask their opinion. So, next time you have a dilemma remember to ask your mum!

2. Remember they were young once to:

Building on the last point, it is hard to remember your mum was once young as well. She most probably went through what you have with school, relationship problems and growing up. Therefore, talk to her she can give you all the advice you need as she has probably been through it herself. You may even find it helps bond you closer! Try not to leave her out of you trying to make important decisions, her help may make it a whole lot easier!


3. Be grateful for everything she does:

When we are so used to our mums being there for every step of our life, it can be so easy to forget to acknowledge their continued efforts and support. So, take the time to step back and acknowledge everything she does for you in this open letter. When someone is always there and supporting you, it can be hard to take that time to really appreciate that, as it could be as simple as asking her what temperature to put the oven on, or if you can wash a certain top in the washing machine. A simple thanks and a hug will go a long way!

4. When you become older:

As you grow up and start to become more mature, you realise how much of an impact your mum has had on your life, you may even find yourself saying similar things she does or acting like her. You will start to reflect on the sacrifices she made for you and everything she has done. So next time you ignore her message or roll your eyes think of everything she does and how she has helped you grow.
