"Let's Talk"

Changing Times

This past weekend I had the pleasure of  attending a "Talk" with a group of wonderful women. We talked about a broad array of topics, but one topic came up more than once. When asked the question, "What is one thing would you change if you could?" There was more than one participant who stated she would have changed the way she raised her children. She did a good job, but during her child rearing years the focus was more on helping kids get good grades, become respectable adults, and go to college. As the women look at the world today, and the opportunities to change the world, they wished they would have instilled more of that into their kids. My take on that is, life changes and with each generation there is always something different about the last that won't be relevant in the current generation.  We are in a time where the whole world is changing, from the treatment of women, to Presidents, and  traditions of  Royal families. I would not look at today, and regret how I raised my kids in the last generation. If you are a woman interested in the change you see taking place today, then let your children make their life decisions, and you become active in what's important to you! If you have already paid your dues to society by raising good kids, then I believe this is your time to Rise and Shine, go out and  make our world a better place!!!

I would like to say, I love this it is so inspiring! I also agree with you that we can't regret decisions we have made in our past, as you stated all we can do is become a part of what we want to see. My mother was one of those women who raised me as you described, and because of that, I more confident in myself that I have what it takes during this era to do what I want. I believe those women you spoke of should give themselves a pat on the back. Thank you for this blog today!
