Show Your Child What Makes You Come Alive



It is so easy to get buried in the busyness of motherhood and unintentionally allow the things you deeply care about to slowly slip away.  

I think somewhere along the way, you picked up the idea that once you had kids, that was your 24/7 job and to do anything outside of that for yourself was “selfish.” CLEARLY, I know that’s not true.  

As parents who want to raise kind, compassionate, empathic kids, we try to model those things for them, right? 
But don’t we also want to raise kids who do things that light them up and make them come alive? Isn’t that what life is all about and when we’re most productive? (the world benefits from you doing what you love – it’s a win-win all around) 
So, if we want to model things we want to pass on to our children, shouldn’t we show them what it looks like to “come alive” by seeking out things we LOVE to do? (this doesn’t have be something related to a career…it could be art, sports, volunteering – anything that makes our hearts soar!) 
What makes you come alive? Are you integrating into your life right now?
