I hold these truths to be self-evident, that all parents and kids are not created equally, but are wholly individual in personality and style. Regardless of these differences, the basic needs of love, patience and support remain constant. Here are the weekly affirmations, tips and reminders. Unless otherwise noted, these are entirely my opinion. Take them with a grain of salt, or not!
Press on: Nothing in the world can take the place of perseverance. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. Press On!
I have long been inspired by this quote. Whether it's pursuing your passion, raising your children, starting a new business or expanding an existing one, gaining an education, or just making it through each day it's important to remember to "Press on." It's the only way to get to the next step, a new day or a better place.
It's Friday…. Go eat some chocolate. It's good for you, and you deserve it!
