Doing chores also helps kids feel like they're part of the team. Pitching in and helping family members is good for them and it encourages them to be good citizens.
Research from a well-known 75-year Harvard study examined what psycho-social variables and biological processes from earlier in life predict health and well-being later in life.
Researchers found that children who were given chores became more independent adults. .
Help us Teach your children #responsibility and Let them carry their own bags to and from #Karate .
When children carry their own weight around the house, start doing basic chores, put away their own laundry, rinse of their own dishes, make their beds, it gives them a chance to feel responsible. Surely it takes a little longer and might cost us an extra minute or two, but the rewards are well worth it.
Acts of responsibility cultivate #awareness of others.
By starting to set our expectations for their responsibilities in the house and other areas of consistent life activities a little higher, children become more mindful and aware, feel prouder of themselves and learn independence along with the desire to do good for the world around them. It’s hard to understand opening the door for someone who’s hands are full if you have never been in that situation yourself.
So next time you think you are helping them, be mindful that you are not indeed overprotecting them from valuable life lessons.
#lifeskills#martialartslife is more than #selfdefense
They are not my parents', not my teachers', not my friends'.. they are my own losses. That is why I don't let anyone have control on me.
It's time you take full responsibility on your life. Don't blame anyone else when you fail, and don't let anyone else fail you. "Die on your own sword!"
Je peux vous confirmer que je ne suis pas du genre qui adore faire le ménage, certes je veux que ma maison soit bien rangée mais le faire c’est une autre histoire. Il m’était difficile d’accepter d’avoir constamment sur le dos ces tâches qui ne sont ni plaisantes ni gratifiantes à mon goût. Je les considérais comme un fardeau qui m’empêchait d’exercer mes loisirs ou de passer du bon temps avec ma famille sans avoir de corvées en attente.
J’ai essayé de m’organiser comme je pouvais pour alléger cette charge, mais, j’ai réalisé que je n’avais pas le contrôle sur ma journée. J’ai 2 petits enfants qui sollicitent en permanence ma présence. Surtout quand elles tombent malades, dans ce cas-là, immobilisation totale, surtout que j’habite loin de ma famille qui pourrait éventuellement m’aider en cas d’urgence.
J’ai eu recours à une aide extérieure, mais je trouvais que le travail accompli n’était pas satisfaisant, donc je m’en suis passé. Je ne pouvais pas fermer les yeux sur un travail mal fait hhhh.
J’étais dans une impasse. Comment faire tout ça sans râler ?
Tout simplement en changeant ma vision par rapport à ces activités. Je ne trouvais pas de plaisir à les accomplir, néanmoins, elles sont obligatoires pour la famille. J’ai commencé donc à essayer de les accomplir dans la bonne humeur en écoutant de la musique, en imaginant le bonheur de ma petite famille quand je leur prépare de bons petits plats…etc
« Si nous arrivons tous à faire notre travail ménager avec honneur, nous parviendrons à mettre de la joie dans notre quotidien. » tiré du livre j’arrête de râler sur mes enfants.
Yalan özellikle bu çağda her gün defalarca söylenir oldu ve hızla da kanıksandı. En basiti: Nasılsın sorusuna verilen İyiyim cevabı. Darwin yalanın doğuştan dürüstlüğün ise sonradan öğrenilen bir özellik olduğunu iddia etti. Yalan güvenmekle, kendinizden olanlara güvenmekle ilgili. Navajolar topluluk içinde ve dışında söylenen yalanlar için iki farklı kavram üretmiş; çünkü ailenize, sevdiklerinize, kendi topluluğunuza yalan söylemenin sonuçları ağır olmalı. Sizin ve sizden olanların dürüst olduğu bir gün olsun. 🎨Görsel: Arkadaşlık ve İhanetin Gölgesi

White people. We need to listen to POC without attempting to center ourselves in their narratives. I make this mistake all the time. Basically every day. It is necessary to continue to examine our actions and how they do damage. Evolution should be a process of constantly unlearning what culture has deemed "socially acceptable”. The urge to insert ones perspective into any dialogue is a human instinct, I think, but it can also function as a dangerous and violent act of asserting supremacy. White fragility is very real. White entitlement is very real. Tone policing is very real. Spiritual bypassing is very real. And the consequences to the physical safety and mental health of POC are very real. Let’s get angry with ourselves first before offering “advice”. Let’s think about how we are part of the problem. Talk less. Listen. We'll inevitably make some mistakes as we unravel our participation in these systems. But we can’t evolve as a global community unless we take responsibility for our micro-aggressions, however “kindly” they were intended. Yes, this is also Venus in Aquarius ideology. More on that later. 〓
CANDID CORNER!!! (Long post alert!) Ughhhh I really debated on whether or not I should post this. It’s embarrassing for me BUT I think it’s important to share my experience.
Last year, after already 3 years of competing (should have known better right??), I had my WORST off season. On my small 5’3 frame I got up to about 145lbs.
Now, I could find a boat load of excuses here. It was my first off season wth Cody so we “lived” more. I had a super long prep and had metabolic damage (ps new solid research coming out that this is complete bs...). I stopped working with my coach for a cpl months. I can think of a ton more but the bottom line here? I FUCKED UP. And I paid for it. My prep last year was stressful and HARD AF. I never felt ready for my first show and it was a horrible feeling. I felt uncomfortable in my own skin. I wondered how the hell I let this happen. But that was the bottom line. I DID IT. Nobody else. And to solidify that, my blood work was even pristine (no hormonal/adrenal/thyroid issues detected).
So, this year instead of making excuses I accepted responsibility for my behaviour last year and committed 100% to having my best off season ever, which I have!!! Let me tell you, I feel 110% better physically and mentally about it.
I sit at 20 wks out in both pics wth about the same macros (and no cardio) but with less slip ups on indulging aka “living life” and more commitment to training intensity and improvements!
Stop making excuses for your struggles. Take responsibility and turn your shit around. You at the ONLY ONE wth the power to do that!!! 💥#thechoiceisyours#makeithappen
📖 Quote: All human beings carry within them an energetic discomfort that has been passed on from generation to generation. It is now our time to let go!
Any unresolved emotional energy gets passed down to the next generation until such a time that it is dealt with. Eckhart Tolle calls this the Painbody and although seemingly very alive it has no real substance.
Often as adults we are unaware of the energetic emotional patterns within us so we unconsciously pass this to our children. This can take the form of unprocessed guilt or hidden fear. No matter what it is, the energy will find away to effect those who are most susceptible.
However, now more than ever, we have the tools and understanding to release this energy and create a new generation of adults who are free from the conditioning of previous generations.
ClearThePath is dedicated to the communication of emotional release to a global audience. Please help us spread the word by sharing with as many people as possible. Visit our website and above all keep letting go of your inner emotional baggage.

I walked on eggshells for YEARS trying to show respect to black men who have in turned not protected me or respected me. When you see an “angry black woman” do you black men ever truly empathize with us, because in 2018 stop acting like you don’t know WHY we have every reason to be angry. And the conversation needs to be translated into ACTION at this point. If you’re not “ready” to respect and protect a black woman then stay tf away from her. We are not your surrogate mommies or dumpster therapists. Please stop using the “independent” narrative too, because if we ask you for something (a problem to be solved) and you give us excuses then what other option do we have? Last but not least this woman is #WCE#WCE AF 😍so graceful and beautiful in her message 🙏🏾 thank #stoptheexcuses#2018#accountability#responsibility#blackwomen#blackmen#blacklove#blackgirls#blackgirlmagic#blackgirlsrock#blackboyjoy

There are moments when we feel the heaviness of #life , #overwhelmed with #responsibility , beat up on.. or there are situations that seem to #difficult to handle, #personal challenges that #test our #faith . It gets real in these streets, seriously. I’ve had moments when i felt #isolated though I’m surrounded, i felt embarrassed because of my actions, or actions taken upon me, #consequeses may seem too harsh.. regardless of whatever obstacle we’re facing, it’s important to remember that our #mentality determines the #outcome . We go through for a reason. A #lesson needs to be learned.. certain #enemies need to be revealed.. we need to be realigned and refocused.. etc. Just like a great father, #God disciplines us for the betterment of ourselves. In this new season, recognize it as a #growth period, not as an #attack .. come out #Better , not #bitter (Hebrews 12:4-15 reminds us of that)
