Today is a great day to commit to improving family life by creating family traditions. Tradition gives us a sense of stability and dependability. So let today be the day you create some traditions and improve life for your family.
The first line of the book Anna Karenina is “Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” When it comes to family traditions each family creates them in their own way. At our house, we have a few traditions that are special to us. Some of these include:
Tacos on Friday night
YouTube video marathons on Saturday
Today is a good day to commit to improving family life by having dedicated family time. Your family will be happy to know that they are so important to you that you set aside time just for them. So get out your calendar and start planning.
Father’s Day is a great time to celebrate ordinary fathers who mean the world to their families. It is great to let them know that they don’t have to be superstars to be loved, honored, and respected. I encourage you to take time this Father’s Day to celebrate the ordinary fathers in your world.
If you are an entrepreneur who has been spending long hours at work and neglecting your spouse, sit down now, right now and figure out ways you can give your spouse time and attention. Whenever possible, have a few options available. It is important to have options available because once you have this list of days and hours available, you will need to sit down and talk with your spouse. When you do, keep in mind, while you have been building a business, your spouse has been building and maintaining a life. That life just as important to your spouse as your business is to you. This means you will have to work with your spouse to coordinate time when you will both be available to spend time together and work on building and maintaining your business.
When you look at the bottom line of it all, there is no competition between single mothers and married mothers. Good mothers, no matter what their marital status, want to raise children who are happy, productive adults.
Entrepreneurs, take time to celebrate your marriage, it is good for your business. All too often, entrepreneurs think they should be strictly business and that their marriages should be put on the back burner and that work should come first. This is not a good practice. Most people marry and vow to forsake all others for their spouses. It is important to remember, that all others includes businesses!
