…tell you, teach you, guide you, move you, force you.
You remember back in the day when parents would live off of the expressions “I can show you better than I can tell you,” “experience is the best teacher” or “a hard head makes a soft butt”? Truth be told, I know many parents, and many peers who still dance to the rhythm of each. I know I sure do! I can remember Maa saying “do your chores as they are assigned so they don’t pile up.” Well, we all know how that went after postponing them to play outside with friends, watch cartoons, eat a meal or two, twiddle fingers, or do anything and everything to keep from washing those dishes, cleaning your room, sweeping the floors and taking out the trash. By the time you finally got to the dishes that extra meal or so has turned into an extra meal or two per household member, and mother, father, grandma, auntie or other like guardian is staring you down with those “you better get that sh*t done” eyes. If your mom was anything like mine or my grandmas they were steady staring at you with a switch, fly swatter, or leather belt in hand—and you—pouting and moping because your favorite show is on now, bedtime is in an hour, and you can’t get on the phone to talk to your bestie until ALL of your chores are complete.
Long story short…our earthly guardians cannot force us to learn or acquire understanding, knowledge or whatever have you. No—sometimes, oftentimes they had to allow us to simply live with the lessons which they and our world at large have provided and pretty much experience life raw and uncut. Hindsight 20/20, I’ve watched my mother, prioritize a clean house, work a 9-5, sew majority of the decor in our home and make sure dinner was prepared for my siblings, my father and myself. I witnessed my father work third shift, come home have at a nap, mow the grass, teach a karate class or two and still have time to let my siblings and I waltz around the kitchen while standing on his feet. Because my parents and many other guardians I’ve been graced with have shown me their abilities to do, be and overcome, I have no doubt I can do the same. This the same way I know that I can observe you, and you can observe me and together we can be much better tomorrow than we are today. This is how love flows.
