As a single parent, I have spent many nights evaluating and re-evaluating what takes place in our home and how I can improve. Though overwhelming at the thought, it has also been inspiring to realize that such inner voices may be up to me to create, for those I love the very most. I will try to be more aware of my words and my deeds. Tomorrow, I will try a littler harder to make a concious effort to say and do what I would want echoed throughout my posterity. I will also take the time to ask more questions and find out what my children are actually hearing from me and the world around them. And, what message those voices have presented them with.
I am creating the inner voices of my children. I will rise to the occasion. I will recognize my weaknesses and try to create such strengths in my children, by doing so. Just as powerful as the the realization that I was possibily creating inner voices, was the realization that we all have the power to change, delete and alter the inner voices we hear and speak, by being aware of such power within each of us. Don't let one bad day convince you that you have a bad life and give up. I will not shrink to the negative voices within my own ears! I will replace such discouragements with positive affirmations. I have value. My kids have value. We all have value and we can all be anything we want to be. The trick is having the courage and stregnth, each day, to be it.
