This is something that I want to recreate for my second bedroom that will also serve as my office. I’m thinking of hiring some university design majors to collaborate with and create something singular.

Doing That Thing On Your Own
“You’ll become known for doing what you do. It’s a simple saying, but it’s true…The only way to start being asked to do something you want to do is to start doing that thing on your own.”
“I don’t want to be the mom that my mom was. I have to be very present all the time, and very watchful of any patterns I might be repeating.”
“What pattern are you most fearful of repeating?”
“Shutting him down all the time. Not letting him have a voice.”
If you aren’t already familiar with Humans of New York, then please take some time out of your day to do so. You will not be disappointed.
I love what this mother said. It’s so important to encourage children to express themselves, create an atmosphere of respect and love for your loved ones, for everyone.
