Did you know happiness is contagious ?
If you are happy ,good things happen.
If you are happy the weather is perfect .
If you are happy, your children smile.
Are happy people more successful?
Or are successful people more happy?
Growing up my childhood memories are mixed .
Memories typically have a rosy tint .
But one thing about life experiences ,they make you what you are.
Good ,bad and not so pretty .Your scars truly make you you.
Wear your scars with pride .
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars” –Kahlil Gibran
That’s why protecting children from conflict and challenges is not a good idea.
This doesn’t mean you fight, scream and have unpleasantness at home.
It means let them learn to disagree with each other .Disagree but live in harmony.
Let them occasionally fight .Then make up.
Let them have heartaches and doubts .
Let them learn from betrayal.
Let them have their dreams broken.
Nothing that you plan is going to work out. Everything is going to be totally different than the way you expected. And things will constantly challenge you. Wherever you look the world is not as solid it seems to be.” –Eckhart Tolle
Change truly is the only constant.
The better you cope with change.The happier you are.
Diseases help your body develop immunity .
Your mind develops it’s strengths from adversity.
Let them learn to patch their souls.
Teach them to dream new dreams.
Help them persist and persevere .
“When life gives you lemons
You make lemonade”
That should be the mantra .
Give them the education , the life tools ,resources to battle life’s pitfalls .
Teach them to rise like a Phoenix . Each time .Every time.
As parents you and me have the most important job .
To make beautiful responsible people.
People who love care,share .Not looking at colour ,race,geography ,gender.
But always with kindness and compassion .
“It is our darkest moments that we must focus on the light.” –Aristotle Onassis
In these divisive times.You as a mother can help.Make them prepared to fight.
Fight against injustices,rise above intolerance .To stand up for themselves . Be the voice of those who have lost theirs.
If we lose empathy ,kindness ,compassion, don’t we stand to lose humanity ?
Consciousness makes us superior to others in the animal kingdom . You need to make this consciousness strong.
Sounds confusing right ?
Sensitive to others distress.
Strong in own distress.That’s a healthy consciousness .
When people fight,kill each other.When nothing makes sense.
Thats when we need to remember.
Remember that wars have helped no one.
Pigeon holes have made only pigeons happy .
Let us teach our children to recognize truths. To know right from wrong. Not be stuck in mind prisons.
Not be afraid .
Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” –Joshua J. Marine
To succeed where others have failed . To persist when others have given up.To go forward when others have stopped .
In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.” –Bill Cosby
Happiness and success are life skills.As parents you give your children these treasures.
You can only give what you have.
So if you have self doubts ,fears,anger,distrust .Remove them from your mind.This is the time to work on yourself.Until you do that ,nothing can help.
Because that’s your mind clutter.
That’s what prevents happiness and success from staying forever.
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, or worn.It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.” –Denis Waitley
Teach your children to live with grace .Live life with thankfulness.Every moment . Every day.This is what I want to teach my daughter too.It’s a journey.We are learning too.
Let’s do this together.
Still believe .
Because life truly is beautiful .
Do you believe happiness attracts success ?
Do you believe our scars make us stronger?
