If there is one lesson in life that I am glad I learned and is in the process of mastering, that is being prepared. When I was young, I made sure I study my lessons well so whether or not the teacher pops a surprise quiz, I am prepared. This is also something I teach to my children. Sometimes they still like me to do things for them but I remind them that what I teach them will benefit them greatly when they grow up. My husband is also always prepared. Whenever we go out on trips, he make sure that we have necessary tools in the car like those jeep lift kits, just so you know, whatever happens, wherever we are, we are prepared.
