Legacy is built backwards. The reason you think backwards is so that you have a horizon to look at while you’re walking forward on your path. Your link to the past doesn’t have to be scary; it’s the things we learn about ourselves that help us move forward into our success. Self reflect, and lead from within.
Christmas is here, and with it, all the family traditions! The best part of this time of year is that all rituals and traditions are unique. Your family tradition does not have to be perfect. It only needs to be significant to you and your family.
It can be easy to get caught up in the idea of the “perfect” holiday and try to please everyone in the hopes of creating a sense of harmony. But your family doesn’t get a pass on honoring your boundaries or decisions just because they’re family. We are not responsible for their happiness.
The most essential thing in life you can do is find your people. We all yearn for some connection, but misconceptions exist about building meaningful friendships and communities. Finding your people and building a community requires deliberate action. You have to put yourself out there. But putting yourself out there can be challenging.
Bridging the generational gap between parents and kids can be an uphill task. As parents, we are the gatekeepers of time.
Kids live in the “now.” By keeping it focused on today, you are letting them feel like they have some choice in the solution.
Setting boundaries with family concerns most of us as the holiday season draws nearer. We’ve all been there; an upcoming family party is near, and the feeling of impending doom hits. Family should be a source of encouragement, love, and belonging. We shouldn’t have to tolerate toxic personalities because of DNA.
