Try any and all of these things in order to bond with one another. Remember to teach your grandchildren to be good in character through your actions and through all that you do with them because they are a part of your legacy.The elders you meet whether in your family or whether they are people you come across always have gems to share with you which they have learned from the long lives they have lived. Even though talking with your grandparents or other elders may not seem like the most entertaining thing, you will gradually come to realize that what they say will help you live a better life. They will tell you to:
Find your purpose and have faith
Your elders will always tell you how important it is to have a purpose in life. Because your purpose will guide you and help you through rough times. Having a purpose will give you something to look forward to and something to fight for and will just keep you going. Have faith because this will help you through hard times and there will be plenty of those.
Be grateful and stay positive
Smile often and always be thankful for what you have. Do not always see the grass, as greener on the other side. Be content with what you have or you will never find happiness. Always be positive, and let people remember you for the good that you do and the joy that you bring. Learn to appreciate all the little blessings in your life. Because the more you ‘want’ the more you feel unhappy with what you have and where you are in life.
Work hard and never give up no matter how many times you fail
There will be lots of hard things you have to face but seek success and do not falter from its path no matter how many things may knock you down. Do not let failure define you, rather you should learn from it. Let failure help you grow and reach new heights. Without hard work or even failing a few times you will not achieve much in life. So strive for excellence and do not be deterred. Work hard and you can live a good life either at home with your family or in those retirement villages New Zealand that offer you everything you need.
The importance of family and good friends
The relationships you have with people may make you or break you. You will always need a support system in your life and for that you need to have a strong bond with the people who love you. Remember to value everyone who is in your life because you can learn so much from them. Spend quality time with your elders even if you have to visit them in their rest homes.
