Life is about growing, learning and exploring – yes, but it is much, much more than that. And life is not about anyone else. Control is about controlling only YOU. Never be in control of anyone else – not your husband, not your partner, not your children, not anyone else.
But, here is a chance to influence and control to an extent YOUR child – mainly being a role-model and walking the walk.
Do not raise YOUR voice for any reason. Talk bad about their parents And talk about finances with YOUR child.
Be that positive and responsible parent that has influence and control. YOU will learn along the way – with the reading, writing, and arithmetic (so to speak because taking some math classes is always about critical thinking).
Life is not easy – there are always going to be more successful people than myself, and there are always going to be less successful people than me. Just being ME is not easy – I have to:
Find my Purpose
Make my life meaningful
Be a great role model for YOUR child
Have Joy and Happiness
Make each day count
Do not waste time
Let us talk about wasting time:
can it cause anxiety
and can cause missed opportunities
can it cause to live a life of regrets
at the end of life – will you say “I know I could have”?
TV off will actually cause YOU to work on YOUR Purpose
Read some History books
Wasting time or a life. But have a purpose so your child’s live will be meeaningful. Wasting time adds up to wasting a life can be in the form of addictions or on the phone too much or social media too much.
Be kind to yourself and have joy and love.
