Meaningful Mondays: Women of midlife be a role model
Around the time of International Women’s Day, a post popped up in my Facebook timeline for a post I had published a year ago. It was called ‘Be a Woman of Influence‘ and I would love you to read my thoughts on this important subject.
As we reach midlife and beyond it becomes even more important to be a role model for others – especially our children and grandchildren. I mind my grandson Ethan (whom I adore) each week and it is surprising how he is influenced by me and my actions.
Little ones are like sponges and soak up so much information, so it is important that our actions and words reflect the values we want our children to have as they grow. I’m passionate about health and I try to keep fit and healthy so I can keep up with Ethan and play with him at the park. Hopefully, I am teaching him to look after his health and well being.
There are many ways you can be a role model and the most important way is to be honest with yourself and to stay true to yourself.
It is our responsibility as parents and grandparents to lead by example and teach your family to be loving, independent people who value themselves. That means valuing and respecting ourselves. For how can we teach them if we don’t believe those values ourselves?Meaningful Mondays: Women of Midlife be a role model for your children and grandchildren.Click To Tweet
Think about how you influence your children and grandchildren? Are you a role model they will be proud of?
