Grand Parenting Vs Parenting.

Grand Parenting VS Parenting

Everyone needs ONE person in their life that supports them, NO MATTER WHAT!  

That one person who will provide comfort, have your back & who can stand up to the rest of your family and friends, including your parents. 

Grandparents should be the primary harbour for runaways, a safe place to run to, a place of absolute love, no judgement and lots of comfort foods 🙂 

Well thats how I see it, although I am not sure all agree.  

I had a discussion today with a friend who does not have grandchildren yet and she was of the opinion that it is the grandparents role to support the parents in all and every topic. Where as I believe good grandparents should support the child first and facilitate communication with parents.  

Children and their parents come into conflict, its a normal part of bringing up a child, which is a Parents responsibility. But Grandparents do not have that responsibility

Grandparents can enhance the child’s life in a different way

We do not have to constantly be trying to mold or direct, we can simply BE with them and enjoy them as they are. This is a truly unique opportunity for both child and grandparent and should not be sullied with the chore of parenting. 

What do you think?

The Secret to Success is NO Secret!

The secret of success, is that, it is no secret.

We all know intuitively how to succeed we have simply let the world suffocate this wisdom. We have become accustomed to hearing what others tell us and letting these words guide our choices. Making decisions based on social pressure and someone else’s truth. The result of this, is a world full of lost souls trying to make their lives work against overwhelming odds and indeed their own inner self.

It is no surprise to me that so many people are seriously ill, depressed, or suffering from anxiety and stress. Taking the wrong path through your life, is a constant strain on your body and mind, even if you are not aware of it yet, problems will arise.

How many of you have asked yourselves the questions?

  • “What am I doing here?”
  • “Why am I doing this job I hate?”
  • “Why do I stay in this relationship?”
    Or the classic
  • “What’s my purpose in life?”.

The answer is simple, the solution more difficult.

Clearly you got to this place by making decisions that were not right for you! So the answer is to ‘make better decisions’. However to do that, you must first find yourself again.

The Solution is to begin the process of getting back in touch with who YOU are, so you can listen to your own wisdom. NO one on this planet can tell you what that is, your wisdom is yours alone and when heeded, your life will begin to fall into place as you take the path YOU were meant to.

When you are on the right path, decisions are easy, effortless in fact, things just slot into place as they should.

Getting on this road is not easy for most of us, we tend to have a lot invested in our current way of ‘being’ in the world; our very character may have been moulded by our choices so far. Finding the real you tucked away deep under the camouflage can take a little bit of time and effort but once you do…..its like being given back the keys to your real life.

My goal for this 60th year of my life, is to help as many people as I can find their way back, so :-

IF you are struggling in an unhappy place?
IF you can no longer take the ride your life has become?
IF you are ready to take up the challenge of change…..?

Then I hope your next step is towards me, because together we are strong! Together, you too can succeed.

ARE YOU READY TO SUCCEED?

Are You Worth It?

A question we rarely ask ourselves but we often make life decisions based on our perception of this.  We rush headlong on with our life, unhappy and miserable, wanting to change it but never really committing to making a change…………..why? Continue reading “Are You Worth It?”

Never be too grown up to play! 

How many time in your life have you been told to ‘Grow UP!’ or indeed how many times have you said those words……and what do we mean by this? 

Clearly its a comment on behaviour that is seen as ‘child like’ or ‘immature’ in the eyes of the sayer……..but is it? To them perhaps the actions of the accused are seen to be unacceptable but do they have the right to judge that? Probably not, because even the saying of this indicates that person too may need to heed their own advice.

So what does ‘Growing up’ really mean?  Continue reading “Never be too grown up to play! “
