This morning we woke up and begin discussing what it means to be “inspired”.
I decided to expand on the conversation and planned a mother/daughter vision board afternoon.
I discussed with my daughters what it means to plan for your future, and how to visualize your goals.
I wanted for them to know that the things you truly believe in, happen, and therefore we accomplish them. It is hard to teach children to believe in something they cannot see. Kids need instant gratification. But in that present moment when she was pulling out things that “inspired her”, I gleamed with so much happiness. She chose some amazing things to be only 8 years old, and also chose items that made me proud she was only 8. Such as a picture of nail polish, just innocent and true.
I would advise any parent that has a child who would be able to begin visualizing their dreams, to do this craft together. It’s so important for parents to guide and support conversations of the future. We are the leaders of our nation. Train up a child…you know the rest.
