I was watching a re run of Sex and the City last night and it struck me that our Fb group are all similiar in ways of the characters in this program. Some are more reserved like Charlotte, some are more blatant like Samantha, others are more cautious like Miranda and all of us are hiding behind a computer like Carrie! Carrie goes through life pondering on love, life and all the things that goes with it and we do the same although the love aspect is directed towards our children in our cases and not some fantastic Mr Big!!
We ponder on our children's future and happiness and how we can find their full potential, but most of all we wonder how they will find their way in this world. This world is bold and brash just like Samantha and some of our little ones will be frightenened in experiencing this world, the key is to be able to get them to work around it and learn to live with it as best they can. All we parents can do is give them the tools with which to learn and give them love and encouragement to be brave and face the future head on.
I feel when I write these blogs I am just like Carrie Bradshaw, alright who am I kidding I am not a skinny goddess but I am pondering on love and life just like she does and also have a great affinity for shoes!!
I wonder are we afraid to face the future head on unlike our children who try new experiences when we least expect them too, do we do the same as they do, no we don't because we know better, we have learned fear of the unknown and therefore don't put ourselves in harms way. Our children learn from example so maybe we should all take a leaf out of their books and have a leap of faith and face the future with courage and not fear and trepidation of what is to come. Maybe just like Carrie who is hopeful and takes chances on love we should do the same and start the new year with hope and love in our hearts, after all what goes around comes around so here's hoping that love and hope wings its way to us all this year.
