“The best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.”

– Andy Rooney

My beautiful grandmother passed recently. She was a powerful force—smart, talented, courageous, witty, selfless, and so much more. This week’s Two-Minute Tip gives us an opportunity to learn from just one small piece of her deep wisdom and approach to life. 

It’s easy to become consumed with the challenging external factors around us over which we have little control. Grandma never let those things paralyze her. Instead, she focused her energy on what she could control—on what was possible. 

Though she’s no longer with us, her legacy lives on. May we, too, live in a way that influences others for the better for years to come.

Grandma, I have your pearl earrings on, your bold voice echoing in my head, and your no-nonsense, selfless example guiding my steps.
