If you would ask me what I want to instill in my kids I could go with many typical answers. Which would be I want them to believe in themselves, be respectful, try their best, be trustworthy, and so on. I truly do want all those things for them but there is more to the picture when it comes to my parenting hopes. As their mom I think it’s my privileged duty to teach them those values. It’s my job to raise children that will have morals and be outstanding citizens. I have even bigger dreams for them. I want my kids to pursue life with a vengeance, to refuse to give up, and never hold themselves back.
If I can inspire my children to feel anything in this life it would be to not live in fear. I want them to not be afraid of the unknowns or what ifs. For them to be free of trepidation and never hold themselves back. I hope for them to see the beauty they possess and understand, wholeheartedly, anything is possible. I wish for them to soak in life’s abundance of experiences and be okay with occasional failure. I want them to understand passion can come from unexpected places that includes fear and hardships. I hope they get we only have one beautiful and hopefully long life, so live fully.
I hope they grow and learn from each mistake. I wish for them to laugh daily and love fully. I want their fears to promote excitement and never-ending adventures.
I want my kids to pursue life with a vengeance, to refuse to give up, and never hold themselves back. If there is one thing I accomplish in my lifetime it’s not only for my kids to know I love them endlessly but for them to live fearless. To my kids I hope I inspire strength, love, possibility, and most of all the power to not be hindered by fear. I love you my precious babies.
