To My 12-year Old Daughter; Always Find A Way

Over her birthday dinner last night, daughter Sarah asked what my motto in life is. Without hesitation I answered; “always find a way”. That’s my motto, and that’s also what I advised her. And to anyone else asking, this answer remain the same.

Always find a way – to make something out of nothing. Challenges happen, it’s part of living.

Always find a way – to turn problems into solutions. We’ll always be called on to give advice.

Always find a way – to see the other side. We won’t fully understand things unless we’ve walked a mile in them.

Always find a way – to practise patience. The world is moving fast enough, stop and enjoy the moment.

Always find a way – to be nice. When we start with a smile we get smiles in return.

We’ll just disappoint ourselves if we think being happy is an end goal. Happiness is a state and it can be achieved even if we don’t think it’s there.

Always find a way. Because life’s hard. Just never give up trying.
