Positive Quote: “I’ve come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.” ― Anthony Robbins
This quote has me smiling. I look back for myself and agree that living through the past was frustrating at times and seemed larger than life as I was living it. Yet, today, I know it helped make me into who I am.
I am actually thinking more of my teenage 19 year old daughter. I wonder if the trials and tribulations of being independent and ‘adulting’ (as she calls it) will be something she looks back on and knows it helped form her as well. As a parent I can hope that I taught her enough to be able to solve many of the problems of life; from having maintenance issues in her first apartment to using a laundromat for her laundry to grocery shopping on a tight budget. Balancing life can be difficult and takes energy. I can’t always swoop in and make things better.
