Love is…being the best version of yourself
They say life is short…but I say life is unpredictable. Yes, for some people life has been short, but for others life has been a long journey. The truth is, we don’t know how much time we have on this earth, we could leave this world today for all we know.
Parents long to see their children fulfil their dreams, but they don’t know if they will live long enough to see their children go that far in life; and parents don’t know if their children will pass away before they do.
So, what does this all mean? It means that we need to be the best version of ourselves TODAY. Not tomorrow, not next next week, not next year- TODAY. It means that parents need to build up their children, so that their children are the best versions of themselves and will continue to grow to be amazing contributing citizens of our society.
Many people have left this world without making a difference, and others have left their mark…which group will you and your children belong to?
