Things to Remember

“Parenting is like a dance. Sometimes you want to speed up and sometimes you’ve got to lay low. Sometimes you have to let them shine and sometimes you have to be the one to take a lead.”

“Take the things that inspire you and that you learn and make it your own. It’s your own artwork.”

“Self-care is health care.”

“Ban busy. Busy builds walls.”

“To do it in community is so much easier than to be on your own. That means attracting people with the same value that you have.”

– Dr. Sheryl Ziegler

“Burnout is what happens when you try to avoid being human for too long.” – Michael Gungor
