My parents never told me I couldn’t do something with my life, they always encouraged me, pretty much said the world was mine to take, if I wanted it bad enough. Despite their own beliefs, they never bashed mine.
My children will be raised the same way. Even though I didn’t fully understand what my father and mother meant until recently, maybe the accident put my life into a different perspective completely… the world is my children’s, I’ll do everything in my power to make sure they achieve every goal they want to meet.

My daughter asked me, “When do we see our future selves?” hard question to answer a seven year old who has a huge outlook on life already but I tried my best and said, “everyday, every choice, everything you do is what your future self will be”

I don’t think I’m too bad at this mom thing, even if I don’t have my kids all the time, when I do, and when I do have them all the time, I’ll still teach them the way my parents taught me. LOVE AND RESPECT.
