Girls, I hate to tell you, but no matter what you do or who you are, things aren't always going to go your way. They're not always going to be perfect, good, or even preferred. In some cases, it will just be a little discomfort you have to deal with. In others, it's going to be straight pain. These experiences can make us stronger, but they can also make us weaker, if we're not careful. It's not the adversity that strengthens us, it's how we handle it.
Wherever you go, whatever you do, whether or not you have good experiences or bad, do your best. Add value to every situation you face. Whether it's leaving a rental house cleaner than you found it, helping your mom clean up a mess you didn't make, or excelling in a job you didn't pick, take positive measures to improve your situation. People will appreciate it and you'll find yourself sleeping better.
No matter what, grow where you're planted.
