• Changing habits.

• Where do weaknesses come from?

• How to conquer it all.

• Valuable Characteristics.


No, it is not your name, address, phone or family ties, these are, as a matter of fact, your official information for statistics. We are going to delve deeper than skin deep to find the real Thinette and, in the process, what makes her happy.

Get to your emotions and, most certainly, what is it You want, no matter. There is only one chance we all have, furthermore one life, giving it the best, creating your happiness.

In every situation, find your position, more so, it should be top of the list.  Get answers from that advantage point, first of all, how you see it.

~ Start with “I am Thinette, and then your position,

~ I am Thinette and are currently a PA at a company, and that position can change any day.

~ I am Thinette at the moment, teaching kids, at a school but I might apply for a post elsewhere.

Develop a strong self that will never change. You stay who you are no matter what happens in the outside world. You will never lose your identity. The core never changes only the trimmings.

Filling a position at work or at home does not define who you are. It is never about the title nor position. Every position in life is temporary and nothing is certain, only You are forever.

To protect yourself you have to, first of all, know your identity and be true to it at all times.

• Not always telling the truth, cheating, in addition, depending on others to make you happy and do things for you, always knowing better?

Mark all the ones you recognize in yourself, and at the same time, mark the ones you want to change.

Decide who you want, the new Thinette to be, in short start changing old bad habits and have better self-worth.

CHANGING BAD HABITS with Guidance with Granny

It is said that you, subsequently, can change habits in twenty-one days with repetitive action.

Find the habit that will be the easiest to change, for instance, replace it with your new behaviour. 

Practice the new behaviour every time, certainly, never thinking to go back to the old bad habit.

Repeat until you feel comfortable it has become part of your new lifestyle, after that, move to the next.

These new chosen characteristics must become your lifestyle now, to a happy and confident Thinette.

Find Who You Are


To be honest with yourself is one thing, but at the same time, it is never easy to admit. The core of most weaknesses is laziness, and in addition, too used to your comfort zone. love.

• There might be a few weaknesses, hiding in the dark corners, my dear. How about miss Procrastination, miss Lazy, miss Party Animal, miss TV Monster, or Internet games champion, etc.

To really become successful you, admittedly, face all the gremlins and get rid of those in the way of your success, one by one. Find your own way to do it, but the best way is to cut them by their knees, to fell off the radar immediately. Teach yourself to overproduce on all your tasks, my love.

Be very strict with yourself.

There might be other reasons too

• There might be a more serious issue. It may be something an adult or a friend, probably said years ago, and you still drag it with you.

See it for what it is, as a matter of fact, the other person might have been insecure and just said it to hurt or draw you down. It can be a failure, you subsequently can’t accept.


Now is the time to get rid of them all, first of all, you won’t need the memory any more.  Sit back and finally, see it in perspective.

Analyse, more so see it for what it was. Say to yourself, it is part of the past, therefore put it in a box and throw it in the dustbin.

You are much stronger now and has grown past it. Get rid of it, most importantly it doesn’t matter anymore.

Make the decision to turn that into a motivating factor, move on to become the new you.

You never have to respond to challenges or situations immediately. Rather say I will come back to you and observe to evaluate.  See each challenge as an opportunity to grow. Each situation can be a gift, do not let it slip by. 

Forget about any weaknesses, erase it from your memory and turn it into a positive. Let it motivate and inspire you, making you a stronger person.

Be your best self!

Guidance with Granny asks Who You Are


Your emotions and feelings are determined by your subconscious mind which in return is the keeper of your happiness.

Remember your behaviour and your thoughts feed your unconscious mind and that mirrors your mood and your feelings.

By having an open-heart, being honest, sincere, truthful and caring you feed your unconscious mind and spirit what it needs.  Most of all you are projecting the emotional healthiness which makes you a happy person.

Who are You?


Never become mediocre and disappear in the flock walking the streets.

Stay strong and your authentic self.

Make your own choices and own them.

The most valuable sought after characteristics you want to have are honesty, trustworthiness,  being dependable, positive and a good listener.

Follow these principles and you will be a confident person with integrity which everybody can depend on.

No money in the world can buy that my dear.

Take the time now to develop the person you want to be.  Find your personality type and make some habit changes to become the new warm happy caring person you want to be.

Happiness will follow you wherever you go, just get up and get started.

Your loving Gran Stella.

  1. Hi Stella,

    I really enjoyed reading your letter, there’s so much wisdom in it. I agree it’s very important to be true to yourself and in my opinion, it is the key to happiness. I bookmarked your website and look forward to reading some more. All the best!

    1. Blanka I appreciate your kind words. As you say be uniquely you … don’t let peer pressure influence your development.
      Thank you for stopping by.

  2. Oh Stella, what a post, I wish my grandmother had written me some letters that I could read and help me through the foolishness of youth.
    Don’t get me wrong, my grandmother used to talk to me when I was young, she still does but, when we are young we really don’t listen, but a written word is powerful because you can always go back and read it again and again.
    Thank you so much, I hope more young people will read your letters because they are filled with wisdom

    1. Thank you for motivating words Rose!
      Everybody goes through that silly stage running around after all the new found freedom.
      After a while the novelty wears off and reality sinks in.
      It is for that moment I would hope this will make sense to them.

      1. Exactly, the thing is the young ones are so much in a hurry to grow up, they don’t even enjoy their childhood because they just want to grow up already.
        then they do like I did, and now I wish I had taken time to just enjoy childhood and find out more about who I was and who I wanted to become.

        1. So true Rose and they don’t want to start from the bottom of up. They want to take off from where their parents are, they want it all and now. It is a good thing to learn lessons from own experiences, it makes you appreciate life more.
          Thank you for your comment!

  3. Hi Stella,

    great letter. Thinette is getting the best advice. Knowing who you are in this world is super important. Going deeply inside yourself really shows your true self. I find this easiest when I meditate. I go to another world and become very present and find peace and clarity.

    Keep up the great work, look forward to reading more 🙂


    1. Thank you Kevin yes knowing who you are lies at the core of your being and dictates the rest.
      What a wonderful idea to meditate, will recommend that to her.
      Happy reading

  4. Hi Stella. Thinette is a lucky girl to be able to receive such wisdom from her granny. It’s so important that we first find out who we are and then, as you say, we can mold and shape ourselves into who we wish to become. So many people get lost, hurt and defeated because of what others around them say about them, but you are right when you say that we cannot let someone else’s opinions drag us down. It is they who are speaking and acting based on their own insecurities, fears, and pain, and it is not about us at all. Be strong, be secure, and be clear about who we are and we will have a rich and fulfilling life.
    Thanks for sharing.

    1. It is so sad to see how lost they are without realising it. Group pressure is a major culprit. If they will just realise they are being used to boost other’s insecurities.
      Let’s hope a few will get ‘saved’ with these letters.
      Thank you for your inspiring comment, it motivates me to get more posts out soon.


  5. These are some very wise words Stella! I’m in my thirties and the past few years have been real eye openers for me. I have learned more about myself, my core values and what is important to me than ever before in my life.

    I guess it’s called growing up. I just wish I figured much of this stuff out earlier, this would have saved me from lots of anxiety, grief and bad decisions. Then again I feel like some people never seem to grow up.

    And to be perfectly clear, by growing up I don’t mean stop having fun. On the contrary actually!
    I mean things like being responsible and taking other people into consideration and putting your families and loved ones needs before your own most of the time.

    Keep up the good work! This here is stuff that should be taught in schools. One wisdom I would like to share with anyone reading this: Nothing in life is black and white. Not in relationships, not in politics, not in religion. There’s always common ground if you are willing to see it and question your own perspective.

    1. Hi Jukka I would rather call it maturing. We all go through lows in our lives it is then that maturity developes.
      You speak very wise words there!
      We are so much the same that the differences almost doesn’t count.

  6. What a great experience Stella’s granddaughter will have if she will save these letters and from time to time look back at them as she grows in the reality of life.

    I recently came across a short letter from my paternal grandfather written the day I was born back in 1939. It still had the envelope postmarked on my birthday. It was nothing like these letters, but is still meaningful to me.

    I think I will change a few of the words Stella has used for my own personal use as guide to help me (like change young lady to young man…please don’t laugh at this old man for tongue in cheek statement…LOL)

    1. At the moment she is still running out there, and will hopefully see the light sometime soon before it is too late … lol
      What a wonderful experience it must have been to find that precious letter, that is really remarkable.
      I will have to think about the way I address the reader …
      Thank you for your comment.

  7. Hello Stella.
    These guidelines are great to build a steady life upon! I enjoy reading every sentience and I know this will be helpful for your granddaughter!

    1. It is hard to reach the young to help with their lives and this was the only way I could think of.
      Thank you for your valuable contribution.

    2. Thank you Fredrik!
      There is no where where the kids can learn these lessons and guidance. Hope this will become a hub of info for them.
      Happy reading.

  8. I appreciate your comments on all the letters thanks for your time reading it.
    Yes our success, all boils down to the choices we make and there are only two you can chose from. It is either a Yes or a No to any situation.
    Happy reading

  9. Hi Stella,

    Nice letter! I had read your first letter where you mentioned that foundation is vital to everyone’s success.
    This second letter about the influences coming from the environment or society surrounding us is also very true. However, it is really up to us to choose.
