Parents beware: your children watch every move you make inside the home and outside the home. Right now, they are absorbing everything there is to know about life. Please be good role models for them, because they are depending on you to teach them all that you know. This is good, because you can actually mold them into becoming great adults. Your children are going to grow up being like you. So, are you happy and content? Do you like yourself? Are you a calm and patient person or are you uptight and anxious? Do you have manners, and are you polite and respectful toward others? How do you react to negative situations? Do you eat healthy food, and are you active? Maybe you need to change in some areas so that you can be the best role models you can be for your children. This is the perfect time to do so while they are still young and wanting to learn. Do it for you and them, because they need your guidance. Be very grateful for your children. They are blessings from God!
We all have busy lives that could lead to stress and anxiety. It’s good to stay motivated and creative, but we have to stop sometimes and just “be.” Be quiet, be still, and be grateful. Calm yourself down, close your eyes to take your attention away from the outside world, and now slowly, take a few long, deep breaths. Repeat this breathing process until you can feel yourself completely letting go. This is when you will feel the peace and tranquility within.
