Whether we believe it, whether we see it, there is always a choice. A choice to speak up, a choice to listen, a choice to stop and think and choose our actions. We don’t often see if because we get used to the way we get treated (or treat other people), the way things are, our routines. In order to be better human beings, to create a better world for our children, we need to start by making better choices. That is our biggest blessing of living in first world countries, of living in this day and age. We have a choice. We have a say. Our choice matters.
I want to make the right choices because I can see all my choices affecting my child’s behaviour. It is scary sometimes but also beautiful.
