My friend’s newly wed daughter moved into in her new home which she has to share with all her in laws. The mother of course like all others gave the usual lecture which did not go down too well, but the father I thought gave some very good advice which I would like to share. He told her – whenever you are making adjustments, which will be many, just think of them as brownie points that you can collect and redeem later in life. Very aptly put. Sound advice that you can apply to any situation in life. And maybe sometimes there is greater pleasure in collecting brownie points which you have no intention of redeeming.
