Hey Mama. Welcome to Mama’s daily dose. I am Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. Mamas daily dose is… “F that I can do both.” Let’s get moving, before we get interrupted.
A couple of years ago, I heard this quote, that went something along the lines of, “I may not change the world, but I can raise children that will.” And I thought, wow, like, that’s pretty powerful. Because you know what, maybe it’s, it’s not my thing, you know, I may not be the person to bring this big change about, but I can raise some kids that really can make a change.
And I just I thought it was this beautiful quote then. And the more I thought about it, I was like, You know what, F that, I can do both. I was just, I was selling myself short. If I can raise children that can change the world. Why can’t I change the world then? Right? Because I’m the one that’s giving them the tools and the beliefs in order to change the world.
So you don’t need to put all of your energy into your kids future, and what you think they’re going to do in the future because you need to put some energy into what you want for your future. I think it’s so crazy that we ask, you know, kids and teens like, Hey, what do you want to be when you grow up? Like, turn around! What do you want to be when you grow up? What do you want to be doing in 10 years?
You know, put that thought and that energy into what you want to do. You make a change and you know what that’s going to do, it’s going to inspire your kids to make a change too.
So you can change the world for better and then your kids they go up and they one up you on that and how totally awesome would that be?
