Right now my little girl is slowly being released into the world to make her own way in life.
I’ve been laying the framework for years to help her build a path that takes her wherever it is that makes her happy.
Sookie and Lorelai proved successful in friendship and business throughout marriages, breakups, babies, and their many differing opinions.
on my own, I invited my 8-year-old daughter to join me — and she was immediately hooked. We’d settle in for an episode or two at a time and talk about what was happening as we watched it (with only an occasional shout of “EARMUFFS” or “CLOSE YOUR EYES” at age-inappropriate moments).
The right people found each of them and appreciated them exactly as they were. Real-life takeaway: There is nothing wrong with being weirdly, perfectly you.As long as you’re genuine, your people will find you.All of the most successful friendships in this show were between people who gave one another room to change and grow.Rory and Lane continually had differing lifestyles, but were always completely accepting of each others’ choices.Now, what mom says is one thing, but watching examples unfold for her beloved characters onscreen as they make their choices is another.
We’re not bystanders in our lives, we’re the ones who can make it better or worse for ourselves through the decisions we make along the way.
