Through every circumstance, job change, relationship status, and opportunity let us make sure our children know what love & protection look like. May they grow confident that if no one else will they can rely on us.
Hard times don't last. Unfortunately, some people don't either. Today's decision matters. Impact matters. Our words matter. Those tough decisions...are going to matter. When it comes to decision making I always ask myself "Does this decision lineup with my values?" Otherwise, it's easy to make a decision based on a short-term situation.
I know it feels like it's going on a lifetime but I promise as long as we take a step forward every day it's just temporary. How many times have we gone through a particular situation we thought we would never make it through but everything is different now? We made it through that too.
"If you're ever hesitant making the right decision - it's only assuming that you'll be rewarded for one & punished for the other.
When you really think about it, there is no fixed agenda. Once we make any decision, everything works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, & action we experience." The decision should never have our backs up against the wall or cause us to sacrifice our sanity. But it's important to practice mindfulness before finalizing the decision.
Keep in mind, even the person we're becoming won't be the same a year from now. Our decisions won't look the same either. Everything changes.
But our children will always be our children.
I pray if they ever face hard times mommy is always their preferred voice of reason.
