To Unnecessary Drama...
We try to teach our children to pick their battles wisely, but often we forget to do the same.
We try to teach our children to handle others' unkind words by considering the source and refusing to give the others power over them, but we often forget to do the same.
We try to teach our children to be kind to everyone, but we often forget to do the same.
We try to teach our children that they don't have all the answers, but often forget we don't either.
We can allow ourselves and, by extension, our children, to get mired down in unnecessary drama or we can reject the notion that we must get worked up over everything. Life is both too short and too long for this.
Meaningful work, whether it's paid work or not, a purpose, and giving of oneself and one's time, are worthy pursuits. We teach our children to leave the world a better place than they found it--how can we afford to forget to do the same?
It's a new day, a new chance. Why waste it on unnecessary drama?
