Desert Flower

Desert Flower Lesson and Key Takeaway:

1. Respect your family and follow the customs of your clan, then your family, and then yourself. Remember that the choices you make affect your family so choose a partner that will stand up for you, be there for you in the good Andrade times and likewise treat you with decency and respect. Time is short on negativity so be positive and learn how to be a lady and a woman. Don’t let another person dictate your life or your finances. Control that yourself as much as possible.

Biggest Takeaway:

You control your own future. Take the opportunities in life to learn how to be a responsible human being from your parents and the world around you through cooking, cleaning, shopping, managing your finances, and keeping a home.

Quote in Summary

“Live life on your terms. Learn about different cultures and your roots Explore the world around you through walking and being in nature and educate yourself as much as possible on different cultures, behaviors, and mannerisms to blend in. Above all be positive and find joy in every little and big gem in life.”
