Thank you for your Blessings. Feel lighter and hopeful.
Thank you! I enjoyed listening and wish to respond to something mentioned early in the hour about fear and stepping into the spotlight. I work with kids and have noticed a reticence that seems to develop during the middle school years. Maybe it stems from experiences of ridicule, which one might associate with bullying. There seems to be a fear of speaking out. We need to teach our children to shift to the energetic opposite – COURAGE. We also need to teach children respect for other people’s feelings and opinions. The best way to do this is to set the example in our own conversations with our children. Listen, acknowledge, avoid interrupting and judging, question respectfully (if you must), and then listen some more.
I lost a son to brain cancer, age 20. He left behind many gifts. One gift was a symbol and words written on a piece of paper which he had distributed to friends he knew in high school. He wrote:
“My gift to you is an African symbol that stands for Bravery and my wish for you is to be brave. Bravery is a thing that is often looked past in society today. Many people would rather just get by under the radar, without standing out. My wish for you is to not be afraid of the judgments of others. Believe in yourself and do what you know is right. Actively follow your dreams and don’t let the fear of failure deter you from your success.
Being brave means standing up for what is right even if you are standing alone, it means giving everything your all and not settling for a half-hearted attempt. Be brave and remember we believe in you! Love, Neil”
