Parents sign up to be responsible for someone else's life. Encouragement for parents.

Updated: Jul 30, 2023



First things first... Why should you care?

Our emotional state dictates the quality of our life. The 30 Days of Positivity Challenge is a daily personal challenge designed to condition the mind and body to maintain a positive emotional state. Our mindset contributes to 80% of our success. So, this challenge forces you to reprogram your mindset for success. When we're in a good mood and have a positive mindset, the probability of us being more productive, having better relationships, and making more money goes up. On the other hand, when we're in a bad mood and have a negative mindset, the opposite tends to occur.

Imagine living in a mansion but you're always upset, stressed, anxious, or sad. On the other hand, imagine living in a townhouse but you're always peaceful and happy. Your quality of life has everything to do with how you feel about yourself and the world around you. Your focus becomes your future. So, focus on nurturing a positive emotional state. Our feelings give us clues about the state of our emotions and environment, and tell us if we're progressing in the right direction. Progress equals growth. This challenge helps you to grow positive feelings to attract positive people and things into your life.

Let's get started with today's challenge!

Let's Get To The Point

The family is paramount for nurturing the lives of the next generation. This is why keeping families healthy is one of the key components for maintaining a positive emotional state. Imagine growing up in a home where you're told you can do anything. Imagine growing up in a home where you're told you're beautiful, and you'll be wildly successful. Now, imagine growing up in a home where you're told the opposite. Sadly, both scenarios are true.

Fathers and mothers are responsible for their children's development. Although schools play a role in the mental development of children, parents are ultimately responsible for their children's care and success - physically, mentally, and spiritually. Your challenge today is to answer this question: What can you do to improve the physical, mental, and spiritual health of your children?

Donnie Thomas:

Today is day 28 of my 30 days of positivity challenge. I'm sitting here in my reading corner. Just finished up my Bible before I go for a run.

Donnie Thomas:

Today, I am grateful for mercy and grace. Number one, I am thankful for God being merciful enough on me to bless me with parents who have always steered me into the best version of myself. When I was younger, I was very angry. My mother and my father would always talk to me constantly about managing my anger, ensuring that I'm only controlling what I can control, which is myself. I was angry at my environment. I always felt like I was trying to justify my existence, justify my worth. There were attacks internally, externally, all around, because of how and where I grew up. So it was very challenging. But I thank God for being merciful and giving me parents that were patient, and kind, and loving, and wise, because they poured all of that into me and allowed me to be able to pour it into other people. Because if I had not done a lot of that work early on, things could have been a very different way.

Donnie Thomas:

To those parents who may have those difficult children, who you believe are difficult children, continue working, because that's what you signed up for as a parent. That's what you sign up for. You sign up for the responsibility of someone else's life. I don't take that lightly. I don't make excuses for anybody's situation, because that's what you signed up for.

Donnie Thomas:

I say all of that to say thank you to the parents who are doing the hard work, the good work of putting our future before themselves, because our children will see the future before we will. If that makes sense. And if God wills it. Again, our children will see the future before we will. So if we are establishing their mindsets to be future-forward and to be thinking forward, we have to make sure that we're pouring the right things into the people that we're passing on our legacy to, so that they can see the future that will work best for them.

Donnie Thomas:

With that, again, I will say thank you for grace, for mercy. I hope you all have a wonderful day. Peace.
