Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

Challenge: Open Discussion

Give people the gift of your honesty, it’s not just about the “things”.

One thing you’ll learn is, people can’t read your mind. If you don’t say how you feel, don’t expect people to understand.

If you love someone, tell them.
If someone hurt you, tell them.
If you value a friendship and it seems to have come to a halt, speak up, reach out.
If you care, make an effort.

Don’t leave it to chance and don’t make assumptions.

Honestly guys, life is too short. If you’ve got something to say, say it.

Communication is key.

And as you grow you’ll grasp just how meaningless petty situations are.

Words are so powerful and they’re such a priceless weapon that we don’t use as much as we should. Or that we don’t use the way we should.

We’re so quick to judge and hold grudges and back bite, when all we need to do is gather up the courage and say what’s bothering us.

Life is a forever revolving circle of events that will make or break us. And if we don’t stop waiting to see how this person is going to act or what this person is going to say, we’ll be endlessly stuck in this web of he said- she said.

Pretty pathetic if you ask me.. so speak up.

Life is too short.
