Changing your mindset isn’t as easy as flipping a light switch on or off. It’s more like dimmer switch – sometimes, you can sit in the brightness of the new thought pattern, sometimes the old habits creep in, and often times, you’re somewhere in the middle.
But, the more you practice, the easier it is to show up on the lighter side.
I saw the statistics and I wanted to know: what can I do, as a parent, to help my children so I feel like I’m doing something other than just worrying.
I don’t know any kid who comes home from school and says, “I just want to put my feet up and rest.”
They come home and grab their legos or video games or art supplies or sports equipment. And, yes, sometimes they grab books too.
They search out activities that light them up. That fill their internal energy tanks. But how often do you do that as an adult?
