- Our parents taught us what they knew about life, the best they could.
- Were they happy? Were they successful? Did they follow their dreams? If not, do you want to continue to live your life based on those principles and beliefs?
- Which are still valid in today’s world? And which are not?
- What action will you take today based on the insights triggered by these questions?
I received a private message on facebook, which made me think that I should clarify more what I meant by the content of Day 1:
These questions are not an invitation to rebel against our parents. They simply are an invitation to reflect upon your principles and beliefs formed at an early stage and evaluate which ones are still valid for you today. If you find some that don’t serve you anymore, isn’t a change required?
I dissociate a person from what the person says. Whether I agree or disagree with what my parents said, I still respect, love and honor the person.
As an adult, when I don’t agree with someone it simply means that I reflected upon that information through the filter of my own thinkings and, according to my current situation, I decide to not take in consideration what was said (or only a part of it). The respect for the person, as a human being, is still there.
Feel free to comment below if these questions make your mind wonder.
Let’s make a better world together, starting with ourselves!
See you tomorrow! 🙂
PS: Starting today, I’ll challenge you daily with a question or concept to shake your life a little bit … maybe it gets better! 🙂 The first 45 days will capture my photos and questions featured in the photo-coaching album “Meeting with Yourself”.
