I’m all about extracting the lessons out of life. Fortunately, motherhood comes with automatic enrollment in the school of lifelong learning, so I’m learning something new on the regular, as I
try not to mess up raise my daughter to be a decent human being and productive member of society.
Everyday, I strive to keep my Nugget safe while also teaching her to be brave, think for herself, and trust her gut. It turns out that as I teach her, I am teaching myself. She taught me one particularly memorable lesson a few weeks ago, when she showed me how overrated motivation can be.
