I’m always looking for ways to support my children’s creative side and yesterday my daughter made me an organic and non-GMO strawberry smoothie and brought me a bill for $.50 and then it hit me! We have been so influenced by the slavery mentality throughout generations by our parents, grandparents and possibly great grandparents that I didn’t even realize that we reinforce slavery each time we pay allowance or reward our children for completing their chores. I don’t know about you, but my kids fuss and complain when the time comes to get these tasks complete. Yes we should teach our children to clean and be responsible, but that only instills in them the monetary exchange for work that they don’t enjoy doing. Isn’t that the life for most of us these days? Doing work that we don’t enjoy just because we have to make a paycheck for whatever reason. I find that when monetarily rewarding our children shouldn’t we reinforce it with some they DO enjoy doing? I didn’t hesitate to pay my bill because my daughter makes awesome smoothies and she is raising money for a good cause. Try this with your child, it may be paying them for a drawing or putting on a performance or whipping up a good meal or snack. We will start at home and see where this goes! Seems to me this is the beginning of creating an entrepreneur instead of an employee. Any thoughts??!!
Let me just say that I am not against education…I love for people to get knowledge..I am against the educational system that this country has evolved into, before the industrial revolution..which is the era that was created when the government realized..hey we can train people to work and make money for us, let’s help them forget their natural talents and just teach them what we want them to know. Before this time our people used their natural talents as their business that took care of their families. There were merchants, locksmiths, candlestick makers, farmers, etc. Not to mention how awesome it was to have a bartering system..where its like hey I will give you x amount of candles for x amount of produce. Therefore business owners were able to barter for the needs of their families and only capitalize from those not participating in the bartering system, which were still many. These days they want us to pay to get their idea of education, so we can work to support their freedom, not ours. In the meantime they bombard us with media that shows us all this shit and they brainwash us into thinking we ain’t shit if we don’t buy into it. Nike’s, Jordan’s, big homes, fancy cheaply built cars, clothes and accessories that are made in China. Let’s not even get started on China, that’s an entirely different conversation. What I’m saying is, get educated…if going to college is your goal, by all means do it. What I want you to avoid is the slavery mentality of believing everything you see because someone is telling you that you should. Make your money and invest in what makes you happy. You may love to make candles or sew your own clothes or paint beautiful pictures on canvas. Instead of buying expensive clothes and shoes and helping the rich get richer…try using your own talents to help you build revenue so you can get out of that debt and truly be free. You don’t have to work until you are 65 because they told you so, get smarter and you can retire at 25, 35, 45 or 55 and live a healthier more fulfilling life doing what you are truly meant to do. Will everyone read this and stop giving so much money back to the corporation just to show you got it like that? No! Does that makes me angry? Yes! But hey, the life of righteous is not for everyone, only a selected chosen few..and those few are the ones I’m writing this for. Be smart, don’t believe the hype…it with cost you your happiness.
Peace & Love
Not everyone is gifted with the ability to have children. Trust me if you have children it is for a more divine reason than you realize. Not every man and woman that has unprotected sex produces children. What bothers me is when parents think their kids were born and owe them something. Children are born because God has a purpose for their lives and saw fit for you to be the conceiver and bearer of the child. Many of us don’t realize our purpose enough to raise children into their purpose. It is important for us to learn more about what we enjoy doing and what makes us happy so we can do more of those things and pass it on to our children. I remember one time after a holiday my step Mom caught me giving a piece of ham to a stray dog and I got yelled at. She also used to offer us kids up to the drunks asking her for change in the street as a joke. As a child this is most confusing especially if God wanted you on this Earth to be a giver. So please parents stop trying to live your life through your children, you never know how the little things will slow your child down from living in their purpose. Let them explore and find other activities for them to participate in other than things you did as a child. My children like soccer, tennis and swimming and a variety of other things. None of these things I wanted to do daily as a child, but because I know I have them and it is my duty to guide them into happiness I will do research and find someone who is into those activities that can help. Think about your kids talents and things they enjoy doing and get them to doing more of it. Not only will it increase their happiness, but it may turn into their purpose which can turn into their success.
Peace & Love
