Day 113 - Tuesday 22nd April

The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection.” - Thomas Paine

I interpret this prompt as learning by living your life and to take positive things from what you experience. Learn what you can from your mistakes and do not repeat them and do not let them ruin your life. You need to take what you need from them and move on.
I think I try to live in this way. I know I go on about how I have changed as a person since I have had Zoë, but it is so true. I know that everything I do could have an effect or leave a lasting impression on her, so I always try to be careful how I act around her. As she gets older I will try to give her wisdom about life but not to the extent where I am dictating to her. She needs to live her life and make her own mistakes but I hope not to judge her and always be there to help her through any situation or problem.
