What Not to Worry About

few weeks ago, I stumbled across a letter F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote to his daughter. I found it fascinating, endearing, and a beautiful reminder of Things Not to Worry About: Don't worry about popular opinion...Don't worry about the past...Don't worry about growing up...Don't worry about failure unless it comes at your own fault...

Ardean - That is very inciteful advice. And relates to what I'm working on right now - being (from which doing & having manifest). Thanks for posting this!  11.06.12 - 1:48pm

Staci - Jasmine, you really need to check out "Nothing good gets away" on Letters of Note. It's a letter from Steinbeck to his son in regards to a letter to his son about his first love. It's awesome :)  10.24.12 - 9:59pm
Susan - I don't know, maybe its just me, but I would be heartbroken to receive a letter like this from my father. "I think of you, and always pleasantly..." ???? How about, "I love you and miss you dearly". I think this letter is a bit cold for my tastes. Maybe I am missing the humor of it.  10.23.12 - 5:28pm
