When you become a parent, you don't realize the impact you have on your kids until they start picking up on your bad habits. Of course they pick up on the good ones as well but the bad ones really stand out because you see yourself in them. You see something they're doing that you wish you could change. So I guess it's one of those things that you have to choose to change. You must humble yourself and ask your kids for forgiveness and tell them you are choosing to change. And most importantly you must follow through with your change by setting a good example.
Sometimes in life we have the desire to change and sometimes it's out of necessity. Both are vital to us and the people around us to improve us as an individual. When you take a long hard look at your life, what have you been wanting to change that you just haven't taken the time and energy to do? Why? When you figure that thing or those things out, figure out a plan and follow through. Keep it simple! Make a bad habit turn into a a good thing by using self-control and discipline. I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me. Phil 4:13
