By the end, my mom pointed out to me how Candy always considers everything and anything before accepting or refusing it, and she never says "no" right away. I think that's such a rare find in any person these days, to be so open minded and accepting, that it took me by surprise.

Even more, during the episode in which she looks at New York City apartments, she constantly 'oohs and 'aahs' over things like a soaking tub or what she says is the biggest room - or even drawer! - that she's ever seen. To be honest, I don't know much about Candy Spelling - other than being Tori's mom and having lived in the iconic Spelling Manor - but, from watching the show, I've learned that she was very involved in the entire design and building process of her former home. Considering that, and the fact that she's lived quite a privileged life, I'm convinced that she has, in fact, seen a lot in her life, big rooms and drawers included. To have seen and done so much, and still genuinely delight in the little things, I thought it was something really special and truly admirable - the signs of a curious spirit, and without a doubt the right attitude to have in life.

So I want to remember and learn from all this that, no matter where life takes me, I will never have 'seen it all' or 'done it all'. This life and this world will always have so much more to show me and to teach me, as long as I keep my spirit open and curious.
