Do NOT Ask Your Children to Strive For Extraordinary Lives!

In today’s world, it is common to see parents pressurizing their kids to be super-achievers, in order to give them a competitive edge over other children. If you are one such parent, you should read this excellent poem by William Martin called “Make The Ordinary Come Alive”. Please read this poem with an open mind. Every day, ordinary life is full of simple pleasures. Try to sink into the little pleasures that life has graciously offered you.
Make The Ordinary Come Alive
Practice embracing these little treasures in your day, in yourself, and in your children, and feel the awareness, the beauty, and the wisdom that comes from loving the ordinary.
