The British version of Death at a Funeral has a great line in it.
“You have to grow up on your own.” Nobody can do it for you.
Some days I don’t feel like I’ve grown up, and I know that nobody can do it for me. Nobody can tell me what to take away from an experience, and nobody can tell me what to do that will serve me best in life.
Nobody can tell me the lessons to learn, the best practices to keep in mind the rest of my life or the moments I need to keep close to my heart as I drift off to sleep.
I may not be grown up or the smartest during all occasions, but I am thankful for friends who keep me honest, who spotlight the facts and who add perspective to my journey.
