Wisdom of the Ages 242

“(1 )Hold those you love with open arms-this is attributed to a Japanese proverb I read long ago and finishing off the tail end of “teenagerdom” I found it both useful and difficult. It now pays off as my children have learnt that although they are fledged there are always open arms to fly back to. They realise I’m not snooping when I want to know where they are and I afford them the same courtesy and respect in return. They have never had a curfew nor needed one and have responsible jobs and work ethic. Proud-You Betcha!
(2) Be selfish. Say No. (This one took a long time to learn!) The more you nurture yourself the more you are able to nurture others and love multiplies.
