I am going to start posting more photographs I take on the various adventures myself and family go on. I often randomly take pictures and then later look through them and appreciate what I was able to capture.
What is the definition of Character–“the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual.” A persons character is what is recognized and remembered. In the society we live today I fell as if this is something people do not value or teach. We live in a very selfish and self serving world. I get disappointed and discouraged everyday by people’s selfishness. I do not let it effect me negatively. I use it as a tool to teach my children that our actions, words, etc. reflects our character.
I have a very strong code of morals, values, character and I want my children to learn this and have these as well. It’s the simplest of things like holding the door for others, saying thank you, smiling, allowing someone else to go ahead of you in the line when you have a whole cart of stuff and they have two items. To me this is just common courtesy something you do not see a whole lot of today. Thses actions reflect your character and it’s possible that someone seeing these actions will question their own character and maybe will influence them to make better choices in they ways that they project their character.
Final thought–The little things we do in life can have the biggest impacts.
Although a huge portion of my life is very structured and scheduled I am a very spontaneous person. I like doing things on the fly. Randomly waking up on the weekend and thinking, hmm what are we going to do today. Deciding to travel 2hrs away to go to a state park and explore. My kids ask me WHY… My Response.. WHY NOT..
