If I do not address disrespectful behaviors while our children are young, then I enable them to disrespect myself and others. The moment we let down our guard is the moment our child will think it is okay. I have learned to not assume that behavior will end in one day. I must be consistent in my actions and words to show them actions that edifies and destroys.
Parenting is a calling, and daily, we need to be there for our children. Corrupt behaviors do not start in adulthood. Often, we deal with adult behaviors that started in childhood. No parent is exempt, and every parent has tests. These tests are to make us a better person, and therefore, a better parent. We must have and show:
compassion (children need direction and purpose grounded in principles that help instead of hurting others)
humility (every one has tests to meet and hopefully transcend)
love (discipline according to our heart and not out of unhealed emotions)
patience (parenting is a lifelong endeavor)
understanding (we are all on a journey and experience life lessons).
Of course, there are more virtues that empower and strengthen us to meet and transcend our experiences.
Make this Life great and your Legacy, too! The generations to come depend on you.
Good morning everyone!
Do we waste time in a state of disappointment? How much energy are you using to try to change others?
One of the things our mother often told us is to do your part. You do what is in your heart to do-whether to give facts, hugs, praise, etc. Do not take it personal when people choose to still do what they want to do. Keep your heart in the right state that allows you to forgive, love, give compassion, and be willing to help when a hand is needed.
Make this journey great!

Are you asleep? Are you sleepwalking? Are you doubting your ability to succeed? Are you doubting your work? Keep moving forward.
Have you been avoiding someone or something? Sometimes, we must do things that we do not like or want to do. You maybe right at the door of opportunity.
What are you waiting for?
Sometimes, we may wait on others to see us for who we truly are and recognize our gifts and talents. We must see our own value and know that we have a place in this world. There is enough room for us all. We know many individuals who succeeded in life and faced criticism and lack of support/minimal support while pursuing their dreams. What can you do today to move you one step closer to making your dreams a reality? Life is a process. Keep moving forward and expect great things!
