What does it mean to have a choice?
Does a child have a choice in what family they are born into?
And do we have a choice in how we are taught?
Does a child have a choice in the body they are given?
in the country they’re born into?
Or the religion (or no religion) they are raised in?
A child comes into the world trusting.
Can that child be the person they were created to be?
Or will that child be limited in the choices available to them?
It’s a wonderful, expansive world with so many choices both good and bad.
Are we letting those we love have the freedom to learn and grow?
Or are we binding them with narrow walls that attempt to keep them
within our own small world?
Choices ~ how to teach a child to think and follow their own path…
to believe in themselves.
How to help them make the best choices for themselves.
How to let go of them and let them take that leap!
This post is a combination of two assignments for Writing 101. We had a choice out of six words to pick one that spoke to us and that we wanted to write about. The other assignment was to pick a single image that inspired us. So I picked “Choice” as my one word and two images that I felt represented what I wrote. Be well and be happy!
