1. If you have a gift, never be afraid to use it.

2. When you've reached the end of a phase in life, know it's the end, accept it and move on.

3. Always be truthful.

4. Never lie, always keep a confidence.

5. Treat others the way you'd like to be treated yourself.

6. Know your friends.

7. Stay loyal to your friends.

8. Sometimes the truth is painful. Those who brave it are extraordinary people.

9. Don't be afraid to admit that you're wrong.

10. Accept others for what they are.

These were the life lessons Geoff gave Scarlett the day she turned one years old, in the last episode of The Flying Doctors. Geoff got them from his father and they were ment to always be there with him and help him through life.
Through this episode Geoff tells Scarlett the lessons with his video camera. The following text is Geoff's voice on the tape.

"Dear Scarlett. You grand-father - my dad - was never short on advice. On my first birthday he gave me ten rules to observe. He called them life lessons.
Even though as I grew up I thought they had little to do with me, I've never forgotten them. And as I look back on my years I realize they've become corner stands of my existence.
Lesson number one: If you have a gift, never be afraid to use it. Otherwise you never get to enjoy the greatest gift of all, the gift of giving.

Ten life lessons came to me in a long letter that my dad wrote. Now we have video. It won't be until the next century I guess, that you will understand or even care about this birthday present. Like my dad before me I'm making an investment.

These are the people your mum and I live with. They're good people. Each one of them has held you in their arms. But you are not going to know them. By the time you're grown up most of these people will have gone, moved on. Coopers Crossing is like that; people come, they go. Lesson number two, Scarlett; When you've reached the end of a phase in life, know that it's the end, accept it and move on.

Guy and Jackie have been going out together for a couple of months. Look at them. Are they close? They think they are. This is lesson number three; Always be truthful. Guy is less than truthful about his affair with Penny. They don't think anyone knows, but I do. I've known for a while. It's my secret. My dad told me to always be truthful but when I'm with Jackie what is it I do by not telling her of the betrayal? I lie by omission.

Steve is young and I expect that he'll be married soon. But for the time beeing I worry about him. He's lonley, he sleeps by cars. He's got a dog but that's not enough. No one shares his bed. And as we get older Scarlett, that becomes pretty important. Most of my colleagues live alone. Some of us form relationships trough the job like you mum and me. Like Rowie and Johnno. Like Guy and Jackie. But not many of us has stayed together.

Dear Scarlett. When my dad gave me the life lessons I thought he was like God. He wasn't. Nor am I.

Dear Scarlett. Sometimes the truth is painful. Those who brave it despite the outcome are extrodinary people. I think I admire them.

And the funny thing about my dad is that although he gave me lots of advice and he often reminded me about the life lessons, he very rarley observed them. Now, I don't condemn him for his weaknesses, Lord knows, we've all got them. But I think that's why lesson number ten is the hardest to observe. And it's also the simplest; Accept others for what they are. Because, Scarlett we are all badly flawed. Your dear old dad included."
