A Message to my Children

Just because everyone else is doing it, doesn’t make it the right thing to do.

Just because no one else is doing it, doesn’t make it the wrong thing to do.

You’re too young to know the difference now, my child.

I just hope when you do know, you have the courage to make the right decision.

Courage isn’t doing what everything thinks you should do.

Courage isn’t not doing what everyone thinks you should not do.

Courage is doing what you think is the right thing to do…

Not doing what you think is the wrong thing to do…

And being willing to accept the consequences if you are wrong.

Thanks for reading

When I was seven, I opened one of those little Golden Books (Lassie) and started copying the words down on paper and it set my soul on fire. I have been writing ever since. I don't know where this is going but I invite you along on the journey.

    When we don’t know what to do, we Google it or ask Mom or a friend or Siri instead of what we should do, ask our own selves and proceed by our own beliefs and values and experience. And yes, take the blame if we’re wrong. 🙂
