Things I am happy I said to my daughter day 2 Letter no 2

Dear Daughter,

It is a real joy for me to write to you today. How are you doing? I hope you are fine and that you enjoyed our last discussion.

Today, I want to say something about your dream. If you are among the young girls whose dream is to grow into women of integrity and high standing,  I congratulate you. But let me caution that to become a woman of high standing and enjoy respect when you grow up is not easy.  You must start workng for it right away.  Remember the adage which says Rome was not built in one day.

Do not expect to be anything without working for it. If you want anything in this world, work for it. A great life does not come on its own, neither can it be built in one day. No great accomplishment is done in one leap. A great life is built step by step; and every step counts. A step in the wrong direction can be disastrous. It can lead to your doom. Similarly, a step in the right direction can take you to greatness. Make sure you are aware of every step you take; and that it is in the right direction.

Look before you leap. Don’t leap before you look. Do not leap bindly otherwise you may land on slippery or dangerous ground. You know what this means. Do not go where you should not go. Know where you are going before you set out. 

I will continue to pray for you. Pray for yourself always.

I thank you for always listening to me. May God bless you abundantly and take you far.

Expect to hear from me soon.

Your darling Father.
