I saw a VERY cool video the other day. Jordan Peterson talked about how as parents, we shouldn't want, or hope for, life to be easy for our kids. It sounds a little backwards but what he said was more important is that we understand that life is HARD and TOUGH. And we cant take vulnerability away from the world. Instead, we need to teach them to be strong. In fact, it's better for us to expose them to vulnerability early so that we can teach them how to be strong at a younger age. If you don't have the strength or experience with pushing through difficulties, then you will be the victim. And carry yourself as such. The flip side to this, if you have the strength is that you can beat it...and even improve it! We can be stronger than the world is terrible. And wouldn't you want your kids to have this power? I know I would. This doesn't mean that we don't want good things for our kids or that we don't want them to be safe. We want them ready for the world and to have the tools to handle the world when it comes at them. We are no different. Are you strong and able to handle the world? Maybe we got the tools to be strong from our parents, or from sports or maybe we had a tough life and we learned it first hand that way. But many of haven't learned it. Many think that life is supposed to be unicorns and rainbows, or that you need to block out the world because its such a bad place. The fact is the world is what we make of it. It IS hard and cool and rough. But there will be, and are, good things that happen and are out there. The only way we will see them is from a place of protection. Our strength is this place of protection. It doesn't mean you are impervious. It means you can handle it. It means things will happen and they hurt, or people will say things that hurt, or situations will occur that will hurt, and it might hurt for a while, but your strength WILL get you through it. Trust in your strength. Let it work for you. Do this for yourself AND for your kids. Accept tough situations and FIGHT. Build THAT fitness just as much as you build your "normal" fitness and you will make it through! :)
