Our Scars

When the wounds are fresh, it hurts like hell. The Pain runs deep. At some point we have to decide if we want to heal ourselves or let the wound get infected, which could lead to serious consequences.

When we choose to heal, we apply medication to clean and protect the wound from infection and oh man it stings! Then we wrap it with bandages, sometimes the assistance of stitches may be needed, but we patiently wait for a scar to form.

How does this apply to the emotional wounds in our lives? The Pain is real and does feel physical for some cases. However, at some point we have to choose healing because the toxicity of the hurt we endured can ruin any chance of happiness or peace that we desire.

Sometimes we need assistance from a counselor/therapist to help with the deeper wounds that can’t just be wrapped up at the surface. It requires more work, resources and tools to find peace, but it IS obtainable.

The scar appears. The hurt isn’t fresh anymore, but the scar will always be a reminder of where we were and where we came from. We, Are Healed…..

Let’s be realistic parents

Hey all! Happy 2020 to you and your loved ones!

I was reading a devotion today and it spoke about how parents should make everything for their child a learning experience. As we know children asks a Ton of Questions or they try their best to figure out physical obstacles and usually need assistance.

I take pride in considering myself a learning mom. SVJ, has taught me a lot about parenting, patience and humility. I will be first to say “I don’t have it” and I’m not referring to monetary exchanges (low key sometimes lol) but more so in reference to “The Answers“.

I believe there is nothing wrong with telling your child or any child, that You don’t know the answer. I’d suggest even saying “let’s research together to see what we come up with”. I also believe that we can question the “norm”. It’s quite interesting to think out of the box.

I’m sure there are plenty of parents with this philosophy while I’m sure others feel the need to give an answer just to quiet their kids or their response is the status quo. Trust me parents, I’m not judging you at all. I’m just suggesting more ways to help our kids explore by us being Realistic.

What’s your thoughts parents? Are you honest with your kids and tell them that you don’t know? Do you allow your kids to question the norm? Let me know below! Thanks for Reading!
