The older (and wiser) I get, the more I realize that my role as a parent is primarily to help preserve my children’s sense of wonder, self-confidence, and love of self and world.
I was raised to worry. I know they meant well, but it’s the worst thing to teach your child. It fosters anxiety and self-doubt.
Don’t multi-task. You cannot possibly be total in what you are doing. Being total in what you are doing is the essence of presence…of true joy.
As you pray, move your feet.
