Getting Back to the Basics...
We need to get back to the basics of teaching character, integrity, love and values. When you have all those things in order...the "things" will come and they won't be as much of a big deal because on the inside you feel even better than you look on the outside. In church on Sunday, the pastor spoke on having character over looking good on the outside. There are a lot of people who attain success that people dream of but their character doesn't allow them to stay there or fully enjoy it. That's why people end up bankrupt, strung out on drugs, etc. They thought being able to attain things would bring them eternal happiness and once they realize that is farthest from the truth they become sad and depressed. Then it's like "now what"??? So raising "spoiled kids" is not always what's best...they become bored with all the things they get and can become very unappreciative if that's all the focus is on because they just expect it. They aren't taught how to work for it and that this is not what's important but only a bi product of hard work and dedication. Let's focus on education, helping others and loving each other as is...not by what one looks like or is wearing. Instead of posting pics of our kids in their new outfit or new shoes, let's see pictures of that report card or them working hard at the table doing homework and reading a book! There are a lot of dumb and ignorant people who hide behind their appearance and image so as the saying goes DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!
Just pray for me and my shoes fetish :-) Yes, I'm guilty but I will definitely do better!
