I don’t have a family yet, I don’t even have a fiancé (Lol) but I have found that over the years, to make something work for you; penmanship must be involved. That’s the art of writing the vision (Hab 2. 1-4), it works for me every time. Knowing the kind of family I come from, most of the things that happened were on trial and error basis. It’ll be a shame to leave that and still indulge in experienced mistakes – I decided recently to develop a set of core values for my future family. Our goals, mission and vision statements and the culture we want to have.
A little insight I got was to teach my children to be actively involved in the love culture in every way possible, stamping kindness on them as part of their fundamental human rights. It’s not going to be easy but I need to do so much more better than my parents did in raising me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m open to mistakes but that’s proof that I’m trying and it’s working. I don’t castigate my parents and I thank them for a job well done; but I believe I can put the extra in their ordinary.
I believe in EXTRA-ordinary!!!
