We’re hoping this sounds like a great plan for you – getting a job of your choice. I am not so concerned about what it is, but I do hope it is something that you want to do. When we apply ourselves to something we like, our lives continue month after month and year after year, building a track record or positivity and success. That’s where our sense of self, identity, and esteem comes from.
It’s been a wonderful year having you home. I hope you see how much I have tried to help you with school and other areas. I thought you might want to read this before we talked. I am looking forward to hearing about your new independent life and to cheering you on.
With great love and admiration for who you are,
