(hopefully) Every parent wants to ensure one thing: that their children grow up happy and successful. One of the keys to accomplishing this is to be a good role model to that child. Let’s be honest though, life is hard. Work, bills, relationships.. it all takes work. It is super important for your child to see you smile and laugh. It is important for them to know that with bad also comes good.
Show your child how to eat healthy. Show them how to exercise. Show them how to love. Show them how to relax. It is up to you to show them all the great things in life, because they will learn the bad all on their own. Share your interests with them. Set a goal for yourself and complete it, show them how to finish what they start.
I chose to start running again after a five year break. It has been so difficult but so wonderful. I get to spend uninterrupted time with my child sharing with him something that I love to do. My goal is to be able to run a half marathon by time he turns one. I want to show my little bear that anything is possible if you set your mind to it.
What’s your goal?
