We grow older with each day and year, even if some actions may show differently. Some situations, we may have handled poorly and felt disappointed by our action. There is a saying, live and leave. We grow by the things that we go through in life.
When I was young my mother would say to me like all parents what not to do or do this. Most parents try to guide their children in the right direction. My Mother, as many would tell me things to help me go in the right direction as a child. She would say things like get your homework done, pay attention in class, don’t stay up late, and other things when I was young. Of course, a lot of the things that my mother said went over my head I like many young kids, would rush to get homework done, pay little attention to the teacher, and just like all kids my priority was to have fun with my friends. Of course, there were the things my parent wouldn’t approve of, or the were unsafe. Later on, I would have to repeat those same words to my own children.
We learn many things from our parents and other things from going to school, the outcome will show in our life. If you listened and paid attention to what is being said then and now there are so many lessons that are still being taught to you.
