Good things come

Last weekend, I was walking around Lake Harriet. A young girl wobbled past me in roller blades wearing a shirt that said, “Good things come to those who practice.” It could not have been more perfect.  I love the idea that a young girl isn’t being taught to wait around for her prince to come. I lettered this for her and for everyone (especially women and non-binary folks) who shows up day after day fighting the good fight, whatever that may be. May good things come to each and every one of you. And if you’re down to share, I’d love to hear what you’re practicing today. 

Good things come to those who practice
