Meditation Monday - Lead By Example

Happy Monday!  Here's to hoping this week goes better than last week, although all things considered last week was really not that bad.  A bit painful with my foot, but it could have been worse.  I am healing and we even managed to have some fun, I'll take that any weekend.

This week our image for mediation is:

We have all heard it again and again, Actions Speak Louder than Words.  How we act, how we carry ourselves through this life is what people remember.  

I can tell my son again and again that drinking water is better than juice, but if all he ever sees me drinking water why should he?  The same holds true for being kind and honest.  The best way for me to teach him how to be the person I want him to be is to show him.  

This week I am going to focus on leading by example, for both my son and for me!

  1. Oh so true! Kids need to have the right examples shown to them and with a small amount of effort. Thanks for linking up with This Momma's Meandering Mondays! Have a great week!

  2. So very true. We need to be the change we want to see in the world.

    Thanks for linking up!

  3. This is so true. Sometimes you can see why a particular child is the way they are once you meet their parents. If you are polite, they in turn will learn politeness, etc. Stopping by from the hop. Have a great week.

  4. this is absotively true, Karen!! it is up to us to BE the example, whether to our children or anyone else in the World. so often I think we don't "get it" that we are BEing who we ARE but expecting others to see BEyond or through or past that. it helps me to just get it down to simple things. like instead of complaining that people don't pick up their dogs' poop, going on a Poop Walk and cleaning up.
    thanks for visiting me and your words on BEing quiet. it is another example of what I had a long hard time making "fit" me, but Now that it does I am a much happier camper.
