What do I want my children to learn from me?
What words of motherly wisdom do I want my girls to hold close to their soul?
As their mother, I am going to be one of the most influential people in my girls life. The way I live my life will sink deep into their souls as the mature into woman. They will use the dynamic of our relationship as a base point for the development of other relationships in their life. The lessons and values I teach them will resign within their being. How I am in life will help them to become the person they will become.
This made me think,
What do I want them to associate with when they think of me and our relationship?
What lessons have I learned in my life that I want them to understand?
To start, I want them to know that I love them unconditionally. That they are my life and that I love them more then I could have ever imagined was possible. I will always be there for them no matter what.
I want them to know that they can be or do whatever they want.
They have the power to do anything. Never should they feel pigeoned holed into life choices. The world is theirs to explore and allow them to become their true selves
To live full of love.
I want them to understand that loving themselves and the world around them will bring them immense happiness. Showing and expressing love is truly important!
To be true to themselves.
To never feel like they have to change because someone said so. I never want them think that the have to give into the temptation of changing themselves to fit in. I want to teach them that their uniqueness is awesome, and that people will appreciate it.
Be nice and do good things for personal well being, not for validation.
There won’t always be some there to pat your back when you do something wonderful. Do wonderful things just because.
Find happiness and keep it.
Find what makes you happy and strive to maintain it. Happiness always makes things a little easier.
Share your life with a person that makes you laugh.
Vanity will always fade. Share your precious life with people how make you laugh and that you have fun with. Laughter have wonderful healing properties.
But I also want them to know that life won’t always be easy. Sometimes it will kick you down and sit on you. It will make you believe you cannot get up.
I want them to know that you can get up. With persistence and strength, it can happen. Nothing is as hard as it seems, and some day you will look back and realize how those hard time was meant for your own growth. The hard times are meant to show you how amazing the good times are.
As I write this I realize that as mother and child, we have so much we both bring to the table.
We are both teaching each other how to be the people we are meant to be.
I want to teach my children that they can be whoever they want to be and to live their life full of happiness love and fulfillment. I want to show them that they have the power to be whomever they want, and that I will always be there for them.
As I teach my children the life lessons I believe are important, my children are showing me they are true. They show me that I am living my life full of happiness, love and fulfillment. Their presence of innocence has made me believe that we truly can do anything we want.
They have made me truly become the person I want to be.
They are the living proof of the things I always hoped were true, that true happiness does exist.
While we try to teach our children important lessons of life,
Our children show us the truth in these lessons.
I wish you all a marvelous day!
