In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Childhood Revisited.”
I had a good childhood. Mum and dad always did what they could for me and my four siblings, and always gave us love. We are a very close family.
I was taught a hard work ethic from a young age. I was taught to think for myself, but was told never to be afraid to ask for help. Sharing and caring are two values that make the world go round.
Discernment is a valuable trait as well.
If I can go some way to pass these things on to my daughter, then I think that’s a good thing. She is a teacher to me too: she is fearless at embracing everybody with love, she has no ego. My dream is for her to follow her own path, to embrace that which makes her unique; I’ll support her all the way.
Love the world and everything in it. As it was said in one of the Bill and Ted films: “Be excellent to each other”.
