BLAME YOUR DAD
So, Scarlett, Wyatt and Belle, here are my thoughts on what I think you should know about life.
LIFE IS GOOD! Believe that with your whole heart. Be good! Life is better if you are a positive participant, adding to it not taking away from it. Being good doesn't just mean obeying your parents and teachers or the law or even the ten commandments. It means helping when you can help, giving when you can give, sharing when you can share, loving when you can love. Do these things and I guarantee you will enjoy your life.
SOMEBODY ELSE SAID IT BETTER. Any ideas I try to pass on to you, I got from somewhere. Someone said it; someone wrote it; so listen, and read. Then think about what you have heard and read. Roll it around in your mind until it makes sense to You. Read The Prophet by Khalil Gibran; read Everything I Need to Know I learned in Kindergarten by Robert Fulghum; read everything by Dr. Seuss. Read the opinions of people you don’t agree with. And then think about why you disagree with them. Then think about why they might be right and you might be wrong. Think about why you might be right and they might be wrong. Think.
That's a start. I'll try to add more over time.
