Preparing My Daughter for Her Future
Last summer, my family and I took the trip of a lifetime. We explored various parts of Europe and made our way into India for a few weeks of adventure, exploration, and family bonding. As our children have grown and had more time away from their studies, my wife and I have tried to plan summer vacations and create memories. Some years have been more thrilling than others, but while this summer will be relatively calm, we’re nixing the road trip for a very exciting reason. My daughter Mitali will be preparing this summer for her senior year, which means we will be researching, considering, and traveling to colleges. She’s mentioned that she doesn’t want to stray too far away from home, but she wants to find a program that’s going to encourage and challenge her. I know she will have no problem fully committing herself to her coursework and soaking up all she can at college. She’s always been very ambitious, almost to the point where we worry about her taking on too much. Her schooling so far has included art club, participating in musical dramas, singing in the choir, and enrolling in advanced classes. We always tell her that she doesn’t have to take on so much, but she is determined to try everything.
frustrations, like music, they can stray down the wrong path. Changing from a teenager to a
young adult is a process wrought with difficulty, and for my daughter, music is the perfect release from the pressure. This hobby will be just as significant once she is studying in college, especially since Mitali has told us that she is considering a career in the medical field. Recently, she honed her focus, aspiring to become a physical therapist, and I’m looking forward to this new challenge for her. I know she will approach this path with the same amount of dedication she applied to her studies and hobbies in high school, and I’m interested to see where this path takes her. As a 30-year veteran in this field, I have seen how physical therapy can move and change people’s lives more than anything else. We treat so many different people, and each one leaves an imprint on us. It’s truly impactful to make this kind of connection with someone, and I hope it’s a career that Mitali sees through. But regardless of where her passions lead her, I know my daughter will put everything she has into college. Her ambitions have carried her so far already in her short life, and I cannot wait to see where they take her next. This summer, as we muddle through college prospects and plan our daughter’s future, I’m sure we will also take this fleeting time for another family trip. Maybe we will travel to Chicago, which is a city we haven’t had the chance to explore much despite our proximity to it. Regardless of what we do, I’ll be grateful for the adventure and relaxation with my family.
That being said, I am grateful for her interest in music. Unfortunately, when kids don’t have a safe avenue to funnel their aggravations and
