Quote of the Week

“Be the same person you are in the dark that you are in the light.”

As my kids are getting older, their personalities are radiating through. I can see them adopting certain traits, and “trying out” other traits. I see them developing certain habits and try to help them avoid others.

I read somewhere the advice a father gave his son as he was growing up and seeking some “secrets” to a happy life. “Be the same person you are in the dark that you are in the light” was the advice he gave him.

What good advice.

That is the smart advice I want to give my kids too.

And the advice that I think all grown ups should take too. After all, our kids learn from the way we are — and they see us in both the dark and the light (so there’s no hiding from them)!

  1. Love this quote – I think I’ve seen it before and it is so true!! Just today my boys and I were talking about being the same no matter where you are or who you are with.

  2. Love that quote, Leah! And what a great lesson to teach our kids as well. They face a ton of pressure to fit in and sometimes it’s easier to be one way with friends and another way at home. And we need to teach them to just be themselves, wherever they may be.
