Parents Let’s Wear Out Rather Than Rust Out!

Some days are just exhausting, aren’t they? Especially if you’re a parent, right? Sometimes us parents just wish we could catch a break and relax a little, huh? You see, parenting is the most important job in the world, but it’s one of the most exhausting jobs too. Once we have kids, our care-free lives drastically change to a new stressful job called parenthood. Parenthood is a life-long, 365 days a year, 24/7 job. We never stop being parents once we become parents. The responsibilities, duties, and work never cease for parents. Heck, we even live at our job, which we call our home…

It’s exhausting, but it’s also rewarding! However, sometimes we almost feel like we’re going to wear ourselves out and maybe even break something if we keep up our hectic pace. And speaking of breaks, hey, I can’t blame parents for feeling tired and wanting a break.

However, this is where some parents get into trouble. Some parents take too many unauthorized breaks from their parenting duties. When we parents do this, we are no longer wearing ourselves out for the love of the game. Instead, we’re just sitting there, rusting ourselves out. This is robbing us of the joys of fully investing ourselves into parenting.

Hey, we all love the feeling we get from a job well done, don’t we? We all love that feeling of euphoria that comes from an all-out effort, don’t we? Well, parenting is no different. But, if we are rusting ourselves out, rather than wearing ourselves out, we’re not reaping the parenting rewards that we should be getting with a job well done. We’re rusting out rather than wearing out! Not good for our children or us!

Now, as my Granddaddy always said, “Go learn, lead and lay the way to a better world for all of us.” Let’s wear out instead of rust out. Lots of activity is good for our children and us. It keeps the blood flowing, the memories building and the relationships improving. And once again parents, thanks in advance for all that you do, and all that you will do…
