Oh the Rebellion
I never remember acting that way
Well, come to think of it ...
Oh my ... did I?
Everything I say is wrong
And she seems to want to do the opposite
Has a strong opinion about everything
Which would be okay, but ... oh my.
I'm here to teach and guide
To be an example
Oh but she doesn't understand
All I want is to show her the way
But I do remember thinking once upon a time
"I know it all...I know better"
What was I thinking? Oh my!
I am still learning to this day...everyday
And so I guess this Rebellion
Is normal and hopefully we will survive
One can only hope
And one day she might say "What was I thinking?"

This article is part of our series on the theme of .EXPLORE
Distilled from our Manifesto, positive psychology, the science of mindfulness, and ancient philosophic studies we have identified twelve themes core to living both fully and mindfully. We mapped these twelve themes to each of the twelve months in a year. Together with our community we explore one each month.VIEW OUR THEMES
