It was the middle of a sleepless night and I heard her. I got it, so to speak. I'm so grateful for that light bulb moment. We've made some college and career changes, just in the last few weeks, based on her desires, not mine. Parents have to ask questions of their children, and guide them, but also know their heart. What do they want to do with their life. Some have no clue at age 17. Some do. Are you listening? Probably. But are you paying attention to what they really love? What is their passion? Did it change? Think about your own life...are you doing what your mother and/or father wanted you to do OR are you doing what you want to do? I certainly hope it's the latter. Check in. Love them no matter what. Give them guidance and allow them to change their mind.
I've added a little Big Bang Theory comic relief on 'Bad Listening'...enjoy.
Keep it simple...though sometimes, it's a little difficult. ♥D
