Living Life To The Full Extent!

Why are we sooo afraid of making mistakes?  I am only talking about those little mistakes that don't hurt anyone but make us look silly.  Why do we need to look so perfect?  
Are being exposed and being vulnerable so hard?  
Interestingly at those moments of great vulnerability we open our hearts 100%!  And start living life to the full extent.
Our children learn more by modeling us than any other educational modality.  So what kinds of models are we providing for our kids?  
Do we really want them to watch life like a movie from the sidelines?  Or do we like it better to see our kids live life to the full extent, realizing their existence from head to toe?  Whatever we want for our children in this lifetime, we should practice modeling that behavior right now!  
It is all in the now but never later...

No Regrets

As you progress and become a wiser parent, you may at times feel regret that you didn't "know better" when your children were younger.  You may even feel guilty at for "damaging " them.  If so, let Mother Nature inspire you to a more hopeful perspective.

Have you ever explored a wild a forest and appreciated the awesome way in which Life springs forth from the chaos?  Then you know Mother Nature never regrets.  She learns as she goes and always makes the best of things as they are.  She never looks back.

When a tree takes root in the shadows, Mother Nature doesn't regret giving it a "sub-optimum" start in life.  She trusts it will bend toward the Light and find a way to thrive.  And in doing so, the tree creates its own unique beauty.

She knows that no storm, flood, or fire can stop the endless Flow of Life through her children.
