See your kids as being characterized as responsible, loving, and brimming with integrity... and most of all? Remember that the girl in China who works for pennies sewing the jeans you love to get for only twelve or seventeen or twenty bucks is as surely connected to you as the neighbor across the hall or down the street. Be mindful that little choices push at the roots of mountains, nibbling them down into sand, or building them ever higher toward the sky.
Don't freeze in place, but yeah, babies. Weigh your choices. Think about who your decision touches, think about how what you choose to do or not do moves you toward the person you see in the mirror when you look with your Aphrodite Gaze. *the eyes of love* And then go live big. Muah.
