Sometimes the questions are complicated
and the answers are simple.
We sometimes make things much more complicated than they need to be, don’t we? Most decisions that affect these little ones can be best resolved by asking what would be in their best interest. Aside from our personal issues, these are the ones that are directly impacted by our future decisions. Don’t we owe it to them to put ourselves into their shoes and see life through their eyes before we forever alter their future?
As adults, we tend to make life much, much more complicated than it really needs to be. We can’t help it. We’re full of head trash and preconceived ideas about how our lives should be. Sometimes we get so so consumed with our ourselves that we forget the bigger picture. True, if we’re not happy, they probably won’t be happy either. But then the question becomes, can or should we adjust our attitudes about what makes us happy in order to provide what’s best for them? Or, do we forge ahead with our own plan, hoping they will adjust, adapt and just be flexible for our sake?
Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be. ~Matthew 6:21
