My dear,

Don’t stand back and let everyone else get first pickings at your dreams. Be headstrong, be bold, be aggressive.

One thing life’s taught me is that when it comes to happiness you’ve got to take it. You’ve got to grab it aggressively and hold it possessively, like the last cookie in the jar. Sure others want it too, but ask yourself do you want to be happy or do you want to watch someone else be happy?

Falsely yours,
