One day, my sister-in-law asked me whether I have noticed anything about my niece’s drawing of the family. I replied ‘no’ and she explained. “Do you remember a theory that drawing of a child reflects how they feel at the time? I think that’s exactly what she has drawn.” I couldn’t believe what she had explained so I went to find all her drawings of the family. Some drawing had me, as her auntie, and others without me but this wasn’t the point.
The point was that facial expressions of each individual. As I analysed her drawings, I’ve realised that everyone was smiling or laughing, except for my brother, her father. He had this serious facial expression where his mouth was shut horizontally. When I realised this, it actually thrilled me and reminded me how your immediate environment is a direct reflection of your life state.
Our children are a reflection of us.

“Wow” I said to my sister-in-law and she said “I know. You remember that theory? Children’s drawing reflect their environment? That’s how my daughter sees my husband.” I don’t have a child but I am an adult who can impact on the next generation. This event was enough for me to think that I want to give her an impression that I enjoy every moment I’m spending with her.
The parents have not only to train their children:
It is of at least equal importance that they should train themselves.Havelock Ellis
Regardless fun or challenging moments, I want to give next generation an impression that I am enjoying every moment in my life. Every footstep on the path will become an unique life path for that person. i want them to keep walking rather than giving up their path easily.
Are you enjoying every moment?
Are you walking the path you want to walk?
What will you do to provide them with reality of life?
