You gave your daughter LIFE. That's where things begin.
Now teach your child, not with your words; words can change. Teach her by your LIFE.
Show her the wisdom of what you know is good. Show her means do it in front of her. She will follow.
Now. Let's talk about your age. When I was 21 I had to carry George Washington AND Abraham Lincoln 20 miles every day, thru the snow...just to get to work!
OK. So age doesn't matter. Does it? Age is just a story we tell ourselves to explain how did I get to this place right here..in my life. Tell that story while you're walking my friend. You'll get where you're going a whole lot faster that way.
And THEN? What's up with the world, don't treat me so bad. Wah!
Hey girl. The world don't even know you. You are not some somebody they are lookin to find or replace or pretend they want to be.
So rejoice, rejoice! Cuz nobody is gonna be up in your business but family. No girl. There's no paparazzi comin and no trouble like big trouble when you got big money and no sense.
You see those tabloids? At the supermarket they TRASH those people. Be glad you are just folks and NOT one of them.
So. Where we at? You REALLY expect ME to fix YOU? Nah. Don't happen thata way. You are in the driver's seat. You are in charge and YOU are the MOMMA, girl. So get it together. And get thinkin about your little girl. She needs a strong role model if she's gonna avoid the mistakes waiting for her.
Hey, so who's YOUR role model? Well, you better GET a GOOD one. Find someone straight and clean and good. Someone you can ALWAYS trust. Then you do what they do. It's NOT hard girl. It just takes time.
And look at me. Older than dirt and STILL talkin trash and takin names. Go on now. And make your girl proud of her Momma.
