If you think that this (child-friendly parenting, living a happy life, letting things go while also working towards excellence, self-development, growing a strong family (marriage included), keeping the faith, et cetera) isn’t for you, think again. All efforts worthy of our time and attention take exactly that: time and attention. If you didn’t grow up with the skills to regulate emotions (who does?), for example, then it’s going to be tough in the beginning to get the hang of it. The good news is that everything we invest into our pursuits of excellence will reap a return. We just have to be both patient and determined about it.
