Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it flows the issues of life. The heart is the source from which we do everything. It is the center of your being and the very core of who you are.
Your heart includes your emotions, images, intellect and your thoughts (inner self). Your heart is the self you are talking to when you talk to yourself. It is who you are at your deepest level of parenting.
It is with the heart, parents think. It is where you put your highest thoughts about your relationship with yourself and your child. No matter how many challenges you face, your heart will stand firm on your highest and dominant thoughts.
If your highest and dominant thoughts about your child are negative and destructive, your heart will hold onto it until those thoughts come to life or until you replace them with healthy thoughts for empowering your child’s growth and development.
Your heart is the real you. It is what you would do were there no restraints or consequence. You hold your deepest commitments and promises in your heart about yourself as a parent and about your child’s development.
In your heart your child will find answers to what you stand for, what you would give up to spend quality time with them and how much love you have available to share.
The journey of parenting isn’t easy. And even though you fail, lose your patience and fall at times on your journey, there must be a desire to change, to do better, to make amends and be more loving to yourself and your child. You have the power to love your child with a healthy heart. You were created for such a time as this!
