Fearless Females: March 30: Words of Wisdom

March 30 — Did you receive any advice or words of wisdom from your mother or another female ancestor?

[Note: This post originally ran during the Fearless Females series in March 2010]



My mother taught me to believe in myself and that just because someone else had more money, more advantages, or more opportunities that I shouldn't feel they were better than me, or that this made me less of a person. She also taught me not to give up just because something seemed difficult or impossible to accomplish. Mom was a very smart woman and while at the time I couldn't understand the lessons or principles she was trying to teach, I can truly appreciate them now.

My mother taught me that education was as accessible to women as men. When I graduated from college, she said I was the fourth generation of women in our family to get a college degree.

Isn't amazing how we never understand what our parents are trying to teach us, but we always grow to appreciate it when we are older.
