A qualification of the heart - what’s in the heart matters more than what’s on paper

The company we keep has a huge impact on our experience and emotional well being.

The people we surround ourselves with can either lift us up with their presence, or bring us down.  We know this and are usually careful about choosing our friends. We look for ‘our kind of people’, build our tribe and enjoy our relationships.

Want to be a role model? - be a real model!

Perhaps the most influential tool we have in our ‘teacher kit’ is our own example.  Our children take far more from how they see us living, than from anything we tell them.  

How we interact, approach tasks, and manage our emotions all provide ‘lessons’ for our children.  They notice these things, whether we wish them or not, and build them into their own default settings.
