Make the Ordinary Come Alive



Make the Ordinary Come Alive

Do not ask your children,

To strive for extraordinary lives.

Such striving may seem admirable,

but it is a way of foolishness.

Help them instead to find the wonder

and the marvel of an ordinary life.

Show them the joy of tasting

tomatoes, apples and pears.

Show them how to cry

when pets and people die.

Show them the infinite pleasure

in the touch of a hand.

And make the ordinary come alive for them.

The extraordinary will take care of itself.


Quote from ‘The Parent’s Tao Te Ching” by William Martin

Today I leave you with this simple post.  No need for external writings from me.

Tell me, what do you think?

Shine On!
