Parents, more than anything, you are models. From early on your children learn from what you say and do, and what you don’t. They will emulate your choices or reject them, but those choices are in reaction to you, not sourcing from their authentic selves.
I believe that if you are a parent, it is your most important job! Your love, attitudes and actions will shape your children’s inner and outer lives. Your ability to guide them wisely while allowing them to be true to their authentic selves is both their reward and your own.
Desires are the raw materials that come from your soul, the seeds of your unique creations. Pay attention to them! Every fulfillment in your life started as a desire. Water those seeds, they are your road to happiness.
