Can we help the future learn how to fish?

“Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.”

 Are you trying to eat for a day or a lifetime?

I was talking to one of the kids the other day as I was helping him apply for his first job.  He said when I get my first check, I am going to spend it all on baseball equipment.

Then I ask him, are you planning to go in to continue playing baseball after high, when you go to college.  He said, “No I am not going to play sports in college I am not that good.”

I guess I should be happy that he wants to go to college.  But I did say to him, “How about putting away some of the money for the future.”  I told him that the last year of high school, there will be a lot of events, it can be costly.

I don’t every remember thinking only about myself when I  younger and earning money.  There was never a time when I could blow a whole check on myself and not think about the next day.  

Are we giving too much to the next generation that they don’t think about saving anything for their own future?

This next generation really does need to know how to fish.

I do not consider myself as a great writer, but an avid dreamer, an artist, with a great vision of life. Being a writer is a new career for me, so there are so many things that I have to learn. I love learning things. I also love change and opening myself to new adventures. I have a lot of interests besides for romance, which is the type of book I am writing. I also love motivational and spiritual anything, i.e. angel. The things that help you when times are tough. Just like many I have experiences of good and bad times through life. Most of my life, even young as twelve I worked continuously, my last job, I retired after 25 years. Where I go in the future, who knows? I have Bachelors in Business, AA in Office Procedures, AS in Consumer and Family Studies, Diplomas in Legal and Fashion, among others. My first book that I have completed is a romance novel trilogy of about three sister, Olivia, Samantha and Maxie (Mommy's living dolls). www.ivysmemorymakers.com Keep following me, I have something really special to tell you. I promise you will love it. My goal, "I am going to open up your heart" xoxo
