I strive to be more like my daughter.
She’s been telling me, “You’re my hero”, since the age of five. Today, I still want to be that, but I watch her too, and she’s becoming mine.
Doing something new, especially learning a new skill, seems scary at first. I believe it’s important for our children, and adult children to see us continually bettering ourselves.
We expect them to believe in their abilities, but what about us? After we pass a certain age, do we stop believing in ourselves?
No, my darling. We must continue to try new things, and keep an open mind. I’ve always told my daughter, “You won’t know unless you try.” Now, she says those words to me.
The only time we fail, is if we don’t even try.
