Won't make a long post about this but saw it and it is so true. Not just with our kids at home but our co-workers, our peers, our siblings. I can promise you that every move you make, there are more sets of eyes on you than you think. My Dad would always tell me growing up that whenever I made a decision, I should imagine my mom next to me and think if I would make that same decision if that were the case. This is no different when it comes to our kids. If you are unhealthy and put your fitness and health behind a myriad of other priorities, they will most definitely be on the same path to a life full of doctor visits and medications. If you set a goal for yourself and you quit halfway through, what do you think your kids see? What happens when things get tough for your child when they are in school/college/sports/job and things get tough and want to throw in the towel. Are you going to lecture them on hardwork and adversity, turning yourself into one giant hyprocite? My biggest fear as I was going through the schooling to become a Marine was failing and having to go back home and explain to my family and friends that I didn't make it. Every person that quit made my resolve that much stronger, not imagining how horrible it must have been to have to face the music and tell people back home that they quit….they gave up. I still think about this, close to a decade later, how it must have shaped their lives to have quit one of the first real challenges that most of them had faced up to that point in their lives. How they will have to explain to their kids that they quit. Choose your decsions carefully as you will never know how many people they will indirectly affect.
