Discovered Inspirations: The Wholehearted Parenting Manifesto

Here's another wonderful manifesto I found online.  

This an inspiring reminder on how we can cultivate a home of love, compassion, gratitude and positivity.

I'm not a parent yet but reading this manifesto made me realize that there's a parent in all of us because we are all capable of taking care of one another and have compassion towards each other. In so many ways, I have felt parental love from friends and strangers whom I've met by fate. I'm aware too that sometimes when friends come to me, I take the role of a sister or a parent to them. 

Reading this was also an affirmation of how blessed I am to have special people who never ceased to let me feel important to them. A simple greeting via text, email or tweet, a phone call just to say hello and taking the time to have a cup of coffee or a meal are sweet little things that doesn't cost much but feels extravagantly special to my heart. Having family and friends around is God's way of taking care of us.

Happy Monday and may we all have a great week ahead!
