Some days are harder than others. For a great number of reasons. Today is hard because there is enough work to completely overwhelm me on a normal day never mind after a night with a sick toddler. Today I feel scared that there is so much to do that I will not be able to do it all at the level of perfection I hold myself to. So I gave myself a little pep talk for the day. The gist of it is that I need to live my life as a role model for my child. I need to live out the lessons I want him to learn.
How motivating is it when you realize that you are your child’s role model? Whether you are going to be a good or bad role model is up to you. Each day make the choice to be a good one.
