December 2013 Week 2 motivational point

You may be wondering what I am going to use to start this motivational series. It is simple: A reflection of your childhood. For some, this was a pleasant experience. While for others, it is not worth remembering. For the next one week, I will give you an assignment: Reflect on your childhood, both the good parts and the bad parts. If you wish, please write them down as comments here. I will comments on everyone of them. I will tell you why I gave you this assignment when you check back next week. Have a great rest of the week.


  1. The older I get the more I realize that my childhood was a pretty good one. Not that it didn't have it's struggles, I never went to the same elementary school for more than 6 months because my family moved a lot for my father's job. I was constantly the new kid and outsider wherever I went. You know what though? It was okay. I learned to make friends and talk to people. I learned to operate outside of my comfort zone on a regular basis. As an adult, I am more likely to take profitable risks than my peers, and I can chit chat with almost anyone about anything, lol.

    My mom and dad worked really hard to make a good life for my brother and I, and we had to move a lot to do that. My parents succeeded. We never had a lot of money, but we felt secure. My parents were somehow able to make every one of the 21 different places we lived feel like home. While pieces of my childhood are scattered across the Western United States, they're mostly good pieces.

    I smiled/cried while writing this Jane, it felt pretty nice. Thanks for the opportunity to share.

  2. 21 different places? My goodness! Bless your heart!!!. So, currently do you still like travelling?
    I went to many elementary schools too because my father and my mother were both teachers, and they were being transferred often. I loved my childhood, although i would have preferred if i had more siblings. But my parents were the best.

  3. I do actually love to travel. I'm about halfway through all 50 states, and I have been to Mexico and Canada.

  4. Same as me Penny, my childwood was good, i a'm a twin and have 5 sisters and two brothers, i remember having great time all as a child, the only thing that sort of kill my self eteem big time was acne, it started when i was13, it got really worse and affected my school work and my social skills, it got better when i was 21 but that was a bit late then, there was so much i wanted to do but it was really a big problem all my teenage life.

  5. My childhood wasn't as good as it could have been but rather than harping on that, I am working hard to make a good childhood for my daughters so they won't have to reflect on bad memories.

    1. That's a good thing to do we should do what is best for our kids so they wont end up experiencing the same thing we had when we were young.

  6. Not much about mu childhood but I do want to thank you for posting so many great and motivational things. I followed the link to your site and really like it a lot, you have some incredible insights.

  7. This is the first time I would share my experience with someone that I don't know. It's horrible and I really don't want to remember but my childhood is a nightmare. My father is not a good man and I am not proud of having one though I should accept him for who he was since his blood is in my blood too. He is the reason why I always wanted to have a complete family with that experience taught me to be more responsible parent.
