The bustling streets of London form the backdrop for our story – two women and a half, bound by blood and a shared spirit of resilience. As a grandmother and a mother, gazing at my bright-eyed granddaughter, a familiar question arises: what wisdom can I impart to guide her on this extraordinary journey called life?


For My Daughter: Embracing the Hustle with Heart

My daughter, a woman who carves her own path in the heart of this metropolis, embodies the spirit of “London hustle.” I see the ambition that mirrors my own, the determination to break through glass ceilings, and the relentless pursuit of her dreams. To her, I offer these lessons:


  • Never lose sight of your “why.”

Ambition is a powerful engine, but purpose fuels the journey. Hold onto the values that drive you, the passions that ignite your soul. Beware of distractions, and be ready to silent the obstacle in your path to your purpose.


  • Embrace the power of “and.”

London is a city of contradictions – tradition and innovation, grit and glamour. You, too, can be a woman of strength and compassion, a leader who inspires and a collaborator who builds bridges. Work on yourself constantly and continuously, it is the knowledge of the self that will make you powerful. It all starts with knowing your strength, and improve on your needs.


  • Resilience is a muscle, train it well.

London throws its fair share of curveballs. Learn to adapt, bounce back from setbacks, and find strength in your vulnerability. The world is constantly in flux. Equip yourself with the ability to adapt to changing situations, embrace new technologies, and learn throughout her life. Encourage yourself to be open to new experiences, develop critical thinking skills, and learn from diverse cultures and viewpoints. This adaptability will serve you well in a world that demands lifelong learning and embraces innovation. So, thrive in a world of change.


  • Learn the value of freedom, cultivate your independence.

Freedom isn’t just about physical liberty. It’s about fostering the ability to think independently, make choices, and pursue your passions. Explore different ideas, have healthy debates, and express yourself freely. This doesn’t mean shielding yourself from consequences, but instead, guiding you to understand the responsibility that comes with freedom.


For My Granddaughter: Kindness, the Secret Weapon

My granddaughter, a curious spark in this vibrant city, represents the future brimming with potential. Unlike my generation, she’ll navigate a world reshaped by technology and social change. To her, I whisper these gentle truths:


  • Kindness is the ultimate strength.

In a world obsessed with competition, remember that empathy and compassion are your greatest weapons. Empathy allows you to see this complex world through another’s eyes, fostering understanding and building strong relationships. I encourage you to consider different perspectives, be a good listener, and act with kindness towards others. This will not only make you a better friend and confidante, but also prepare you to navigate a world that increasingly needs bridges of understanding.


  • Embrace individuality, celebrate differences.

London thrives on its diversity. Be your authentic self, your true self, yet embrace the richness of perspectives around you. In a world that thrives on trends and filters, learn the importance of staying true to yourself.  Embrace your quirks, celebrate your individuality, and be comfortable in your own skin. This will equip you with the confidence to resist peer pressure and navigate social situations with authenticity. Do not let anyone change you, and seek help when you need.


  • Curiosity is a lifelong adventure.

London’s streets hold countless stories waiting to be discovered. Cultivate a curious mind, ask questions, and never stop learning. Benefit from the Ivy League education all around you. Meet the people in this exhilarating metropolis, get to know their stories, and even learn from their mistakes.


  • Church hard Work Ethic.

Life isn’t always a smooth ride my dear. Instilling a strong work ethic will help you persevere through challenges, develop problem-solving skills, and appreciate the value of earned success. Try  new things, embrace failures as learning opportunities, and celebrate her journey of continuous improvement.


The Legacy We Build Together

What we leave for our daughters and grand-daughters the little growing “half woman” out there in the city, is the legacy we weave together. It’s the shared experiences passed down through generations, the values that become a family’s moral compass.

As women in London, we navigate a city that is both exhilarating and demanding. Yet, amidst the hustle and bustle, we create a haven of love and support. In this shared space, we learn from each other, celebrate each other’s triumphs, and offer solace during challenges.

So, as we walk the streets of London, two and a half women, hand in hand, we carry not just the weight of expectations, but also the torch of hope, resilience, and unwavering love – a legacy waiting to be passed on to the next generation.

But these are just a few of the core values we can instill in our daughters. Remember, the most powerful lessons are often learned through experience. Lead by example, encourage her curiosity, and provide a safe space where she feels comfortable exploring her emotions and asking questions. As you guide her along this path, you’ll be nurturing not just a capable individual, but a woman who will leave her own positive mark on the world.
