If you could go back in time and have a conversation with your younger self, what would be the one lesson you would share?
Would it be:
- To spend time thinking about what you value most – what is important to you?
- Be more optimistic?
- Learn to play a musical instrument or a second language?
- Learn from your mistakes, rather than consider them points of failure?
- Be more empathetic?
- Be kinder?
- Be more honest?
- Be more loving?
When you make your list, you will see the lessons that you will want to share with your children while they are still young. The first magical decade of a child’s life is when they develop their personality, their sense of justice and moral compass, and begin to mold into the kind of person they will become as adults. Now is the time to start teaching these lessons!
