Reflect & Evolve
"You can't get scarred if you don't get hurt." - Iniko Hogan (our 8 year old son)
As a family, we value using proverbs in our daily interactions. When teaching our boys a lesson, proverbs always seem to be the right thing to give guidance, comfort and an opportunity for them to think critically and abstractly.
This week, while "showing off" our physical scars to each other, our youngest made the above statement. Based on the flow of our conversation, we interpreted his proverb as not being afraid to try something new even if it might hurt you. (Scars seem to be a sign of dignity and respect around a house full of boys!)
His proverb is a beautiful, child-hearted reminder that to grow (get scarred), we must place ourselves in vulnerable positions. We must risk getting "hurt" in order to benefit from moving in a new direction.
This week, let's examine areas in our lives where we have been too afraid to 'stick our necks out'; dreams we haven't told a soul for fear of ridicule; feelings we haven't shared to protect our ego. Let's also ask ourselves why.
We only have this one life to live. If we don't set out to do those things we truly want to do now, we might miss out on the opportunity to proudly gain those scars!
