Did you know that our kids can also teach us about life, mom?

 

As I witness my little one growing up he has brought so much of realization in me about life. I maybe his mom but when I see his eyes there so much that he thought me about important things in life.

Have fun and enjoy every single day even just for simple things

Just by smelling the flower every time we pass by at the park gives my son pure joy. He doesn’t need extravagant things to be happy.  This may be a cliché but its candid, true happiness are those that money can’t buy.

 It’s ok to make mistake, just keep up what you think is right, even not for others

How many time I see my son stumble when he is playing, every time he runs fast and yet he continue to get up on his own and keep on what he is doing.  

As a mom its fine if we can’t be perfect mother to our child, it’s okay we if we don’t meet someone’s expectation for as long as your child is pleasing.

 

“We need to realize that our path to transformation is through our mistakes. We’re meant to make mistakes, recognize them and move to become unlimited. – Yehuda Berg”

 

Feel your emotions and show it

Do not hide your feelings, let everyone know if you are sad, if you are feeling bad because someone hurt your feelings. I am sometimes, I want to just keep to myself, if I am hurting, if I am feeling worried I just can’t let it out. But I have my husband who listens to me, who is my partner if I am feeling not OK I will just talk to him. Burst it out mama it will also help you out your stress. Nobody knows what you feel. Sometimes no matter how much you try to speak your heart out, words are not just enough to describe how you truly feel.

 

But my son, I know just by looking at him if he is happy or when he is feeling sick. Kids are very transparent to their feelings and sometimes I wish I am like them.

 

“You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you cannot close your heart to the things you do not want to feel”. – Johnny Depp

 

 

To easily forgive and forget

Once you scold a child they will feel bad about it and the next minute they forget about what happened. If we as a mom also like these kids who can just we will have harmonious relationship to everyone.

 

“The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.” – Honore de Balzac

 

When I started to bring my child to parks and soft plays is also the time I interact with kids. And if you just listen to their heart; we will learn valuable life lesson from them.

 

What about you mom, please share me some insights about what your child has taught you about?
