Prudent Advice for My Daughter V.2: The Good Things In Life

All the good things in life take work.

Let me be very clear about something: I’m absolutely crazy about you and as your mother I want to give you everything that I can. However, you are not entitled to a single thing in this world, young lady. You are beautiful, you are strong, you are smart, you are wildly happy… and you still have to earn what you want. Everything beautiful takes work. Reaping, and sowing… it’s an ongoing cycle. Don’t get discouraged if the process of achieving something is painful. Those blisters on your hands are well worth the rewards. So do your homework. Work out. Fight for your marriage and your friendships. And never EVER give up.
