Reminds me of my favorite quote from the Dalai Lama--

Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back and reasons to stay.

I remind myself of this whenever someone tries to convince me that a child’s job is to leave the nest.

That , no, in the end, the roots are what matter.

Don’t you ever stop doing what you’re doing.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
