If you feel down – make a change. It might be the scariest change, but the risk is well worth it. I went through a break up and quit my career in the same week. Never looked back, and have never been happier. ♡Jacqueline

Relationships require time & effort. The best relationships are not easy, but rather earned and built with care.Spencer Bowen
In October 2015, a faculty colleague of mine literally dropped dead outside my office door. While my relationship with her had been strained in the past, we were just beginning to turn over a new leaf & develop a positive relationship.
That day and every day after, this quote stays in my heart:
Life is short… Be swift to love, make haste to be kind.A.T.
My relationship with my mother and father completely flipped sometime in my 20’s. As a kid, my mother was who I loved the most and my father was to be feared.
He ended up mellowing out over the years and becoming one of my best friends. A supporter of anything I put my mind to.
My mother, by contrast grew more controlling and difficult. It’s a real struggle to be around her.
Cherish your parents as real people who can change, who have faults, who have their own inner lives. It will be too much to bear when they change if you’re not open to it.TK
