They seem immersed in their world that you have created for them.
They appear to only focus on themselves.
You are mom, dad, grammy or auntie
You think they don’t notice you apart from their own needs.
They are watching
They watch how you treat yourself.
They watch what you eat, how you move, and how you love.
They notice when you don’t love yourself …. or others
Don’t show them the world, show them how to live in it.
Your lifestyle choices will mostly likely become theirs.
You prioritize exercise, they will
You prioritize nutrition, they will
You prioritize sleep, they will
You prioritize compassion and social justice, they will
They are always watching.
