Someone sent me this yesterday. Sometimes you just need a little laugh. We spend so much time being serious. All this time pretending we don’t want to be goofy, silly, joking around, having fun. Everyone around us is doing the same. It’s so odd. It’s bizarre. Have some fun today, be a little silly. Wake up that inner little child and let them out today for a few minutes. Preferably not in a public restroom or an important meeting. That would probably be frowned upon.
Yesterday I was picking Dennis up from his grandparents house and I asked where his violin was. He had to bring his school stuff from his mom's to his grandparents and then to my house since he had no school. He didn't have it and responded with "I'm gonna kill myself" half under his breath but full of frustration. My heart dropped. One of my goals as a parent is to continuously show him that making mistakes are normal, they are ok, and we learn from them. My immediate response was a knee jerk "don't say that." Later that night I didn't bring it up but I made sure to spend some extra time with him and without my phone being there. This morning we had a quiet conversation. I asked him if he remembered it, I asked him what he meant by it, I made sure that he knew he could always talk to me and he is always loved. You might believe it to be innocent and you would be fairly correct that it is, however I know too many people who have had their children commit suicide in their teens, twenties, and thirties. He may only be 8 now but seeds of being incapable of communicating start now. He is tremendously kind. I see him regularly take on the blame for others because he would rather absorb the hurt, the responsibility, or whatever it is instead of letting someone else bear that. He be hurt many times in his life because of it, I know because I do it. I have done it. The thought of I know I can handle it, I don't know if others can. What's my point? Take the time to talk to those you love. Take the time to make sure they are ok. Take the extra second. Put the phone down and spend some time. They are not making more time, it's an unknown finite resource. #cfqda #lifelessons #bebetter #parent #parenting #quotes #inspiration #motivation #improvedaily #learningneverstops
What may look like a subtle change in the ability to flex the spine is actually much more. New Chiro patient that hurt their back at work and was aggravated after an adjustment from a different chiropractor. Pain radiating down his leg, numbness in his toes, and inability to lift his toes. I did not adjust him. I worked on a few specific muscles and taught him a few exercises. Upon leaving he was pain free, no numbness in his toes, and was able to lift his toes. He is not healed, it is not magic. He has a bunch of work ahead of him. Just in case you didn't know I do other stuff besides destroy egos... #thisshitworks #chiropractor #fitfam #cfqda #letsgo #snappingnecksandcashingchecks
