I never considered myself a mean parent, maybe a stern parent when it came to the things I valued. At times, I wonder what is destined to bite me in the butt as my kids become older. I imagine that one day, they will go off, raise their own families-creating their own value system, adopting things that matter to them. And it is clear in these moments that they will one day discuss with their spouse that they learned systems from home but never want to be a part of.
Isn’t this the cycle of life? Each generation grows a bit from those whose shoulders they boldly stood upon. Yet, somehow in life our current state seems clearly right, but time reveals that our stance may not have stood for much. Considering the current state of the world, it is clear that we all have to make decisions, choices that will be held under the microscopic lens of our sugars eyes when they take the time to determine what they value in life.
World Changer, I honestly believe that if we intentionally design foundations of love and truth while pushing purpose than our sugars will one day look back and agree that ‘mom and dad may not have been perfect, but at least they tried.’ However, one will never know unless one asks, connects and enacts on a regular basis. Over the years, accounts of world changers tell stories from their lens, never really seeking the perspective of their sugars young and old.
This is such a disservice because you don’t know what you don’t know until you ask. World changer, you have the time and space to choose how you define your time and space with your sugar. Make the most of it! Cherish what you believe! Instill character and love towards your fellow man. No matter the rhetoric, we are better together. Don’t allow anyone to steal that life principle.
As always, I am cheerleading for you in the corner as we forge ahead a new tomorrow while creating the best today!
Until the next time-
Take Care, C
