I promise to………..
Today I begin a new life.
I greet this day with love in my heart.
I persist until I succeed.
I am nature’s greatest miracle.
I live this day as if it’s my last.
Today I am master of my emotions.
Wow, what a amazing journey I have been on so far! I have grown so much over the last 6 months, and I am excited for my future self! Fantastic things are yet to come!
As I sit here watching my two little boys playing, I keep thinking, wow to be young again, to see things through the eyes of children! Life is so simple and beautiful! Life is a miracle! The tiny little innocent things they do without even thinking about it. Things like holding hands with other kids their age, my two older kids would not do that any more without giggling or feeling embarrassed! It is crazy how we do that to our kids with out even noticing what we are doing! Children are so free, free to express themselves, free to feel in the moment, free to laugh, free to love, free to just be!
I have always had a special bond with children, I knew I would work with children when I grew up or at the very least have a handful of my own to love! I am not sure what always drew me to kids, but I think I just loved their innocents, and freedom! They had that feeling I wanted! Kids don’t have stress, or worry! They just have the present, the here and now! They don’t worry about tomorrow or yesterday! They live in the moment as if it is their last day! Kids are so wise and they don’t even know the power they have! It is sad that we try to control them and tell them to follow in line! Tell them what is the “right” way to act and be! Kids are smart, funny, helpful, and just good! I am trying to channel my inner child, slowly chipping away the layers of cement that is weighing me down, so I can be a better version of myself!
I always keep my promises…………………………Brenda
