Every now and again I receive a homework assignment from a coaching client that touches my whole soul. This just in.
After telling me she really feels aggressive, dejected, and truly wants to soften her demeanor, her behavior, her attitude and her thinking, I gave her this assignment.
What would you like to teach to your kids with your demeanor, your behavior, your attitude, your thinking?
“I want to teach my kids to be patient. To roll with the ups and downs. To not give up. To be honest, open, loving kind, and fierce. I want to teach my kids to act openly and not defensively. That love wins, love rules, love guides. I want to teach my kids that a partnership is sacred. That even when shit hits the fan and everyone’s mad, grown ups still find ways to treat each other respectfully. I want to teach my kids that not every day is perfect, and it’s okay to be a little unsettled sometimes. I want to teach my kids that fights are resolvable, it doesn’t mean there isn’t love. I want to teach my kids that adults can navigate hard times together and learn to be open to how the other sees things. I want to teach my kids to share. I want to teach my kids to practice self-care, to speak their truths confidently and without apology. I want to teach my kids that hard times are growing opportunities. ” ~P.
