Family: Monday Motivation January 29, 2024

Anyone who has spoken to me knows how proud I am of my family, the one my wife and I created, the one from which I am descended, the one I married into, and the one whose emblem I earned. I don’t have a unifying principle that says “Family” because I have three covering: husband, father, brother, leader, mentor, Marine, and friend. These roles define essential relationships in my life. Those relationships engender responsibilities and emotions. They require goals, routines, and habits. As children grow and we mature some of those change. Considering this unifying principle, there will be tangible goals like saving money for kids’ educations, but more than likely, there will be many more intangible goals because relationships are more based on feelings and require long periods of uninterrupted time. The quality of relationships is directly related to the time invested. As you consider your unifying principles, accept that they are all about how you want to live your life. How do you want your kids to grow up? What kind of relationship would you like to have with each family member? What is your perfect family lifestyle? There will be many tangible and intangible goals, but that makes sense because there is much more in your life besides your work. So, this week, think of all of your relationships and the roles you play, then draft some unifying principles.
