Bust Your Ass
You want to know the best parenting lesson I’ve learned? (Aside from CTFD, obvs.)
You need to bust your ass. All the time.
Tired? Stressed? Struggling to make ends meet? Welcome to parenting. Hell, welcome to life in general.
The thing is, as parents, we have a life or lives for which we must care. So, be tired, be stressed, struggle financially. But also, bust your ass. Never be satisfied with things as they are. Learn, reach, strive, excel. Show your kids that you’ll never stop fighting for them.
Yes, we’re all exhausted all the time and mustering the energy or courage to do battle with the day may seem impossible, but we should keep looking for ways to make our lives better—even if that happens incrementally—because that makes our kids’ lives better.
So, find time to rest, and then…
Bust. Your. Ass.
