What are children? All children are our future—biologically or not is irrelevant. When you impact the life of a child in a positive or negative way, you are creating the hearts, hands, voices, and minds of tomorrow. Do you want to leave a lasting impression on this Earth that is positive or negative?
Impart a positive impression on a child, and leave a positive legacy forever in the minds and hearts of that child. Impart a negative impression on a child, and leave a negative legacy forever in the minds and hearts of that child. What impression and legacy do you want to create?
Instill good values and morals in your children, and watch them thrive and flourish. Cultivate a part of you in them through love and encouragement. Educate them with your essence and what you know, so that a part of you continues on even after you depart this Earth, providing them with a strong foundation to grow on.
Teach them not what to think, but how to think for themselves and own it. Teach them to use their voice and make good decisions by giving them choices, allowing them some control over their destiny. Guide them in writing their story. Don’t write it for them. Encourage them to dream and then to chase it. Children need guidance, not control, to flourish. You will last in their hearts, minds, and actions forever.What a beautiful legacy it is to live within the heart and mind of a developing child. You never know what beauty can come from that. That is the most important legacy you can leave on this Earth.
