My son is getting pretty good at tennis. It makes me happy & proud of course.
Just to let you in on a secret, I was quite a tennis player back in the day. I actually played at a competitive level. (but that seems like another lifetime ago).
So it fills my heart to see my son taking a liking to tennis as well.
Yesterday, in the middle of the day, he insisted he wanted to hit some balls on the tennis court.
Mom said Yes, I said No (I had way too much work to do.)
His shoulders shrunk. He walked away, looking dejected. I felt really bad, but I had to stay focused on accomplishing my goals… (or so I told myself).
But he came back a few minutes later and said, “But Dada, I’m getting really good at it, you HAVE to come watch me play”……
… That’ melted my heart.
I quickly realized the importance of this moment in shaping my son’s psyche and building up his confidence.
Work has to wait…
My kids keep me accountable in more ways than I can recount. I have such deep conviction about giving positive affirmation to my kids right from the beginning. Make sure they know Mom & Dad are always there to cheer them on and spend time with them.
More often than not my work keeps me from doing that. At times, I snap at them but then the Holy Spirit reminds me of Proverbs 22:6:
“Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.”
And it snaps me right back.
I have to live by example, they are watching me more than listening to me.
Anyway, we went to the tennis court and I’m glad I did coz we had so much fun!
I also got a very special gift from one of the high ticket affiliate programs that I am promoting for being one of their top affiliates. So I decided to open it (again) at the court.
I was able to capture some of our outings in this short video. Please check it out.
I feel blessed that I get to spend most of my day with my family and go on spontaneous outings like this WHEN we desire!
This is what I call having “Time Freedom”, something that was not possible when I was working a 9 to 5 job.
If you are interested in have the Time, Money & Location Freedom, you absolutely have to check out this incredibly amazing system that has afforded me all three.
Also here are few more links that I mentioned in the video:
I hope you all have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!
