My son turned 18 years old a couple weeks ago. He is now legally an adult - off to college, learning how to be responsible for every aspect of his life. I have one piece of advice to give to him that I wish someone had given to me when I was his age. I don't know who really said it - there seems to be a bit of disagreement out there. Sometimes it is attributed to Harley Davidson, other times to Anonymous. Regardless of the author, it is a lesson I hope he heeds.
"When writing the story of your life, don't let anyone else hold the pen."
A good lesson for us all.
