A Royal Wedding- Building a Legacy

In light of the times of modern technology age and short lived weddings and marriages, it is always out of curiosity and a bit heart warming to see and watch another Royal Wedding take place.  We are so accustomed to weddings that are modern and focused on what we (the couple) want instead of sticking to plans that carry on a traditional approach that have long lasting effect to generations that will come afterwards.    This royal wedding between Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle will merge both modern concepts yet keep what was special and sacred to the royal heritage.

Special invitations are made by the same company since 1985 with the Royal tradition of the Three-Feathered Badge of the Prince of Wales that are printed in gold ink while announcements and every detail of the wedding are posted on the special Royal Family website.  Here, you will be amazed on the details of the wedding that are posted for the public to view.  From the names of the Bridesmaids and Page Boys to the food that will be prepared and served.

It is not so much the large amount of money and time spent on the invitations and big guest list that makes the royal weddings such an event to watch but more on how traditions are kept that has been passed on for years that has created the Royal Family legacy.

To create a long legacy of our family, we need to start putting in traditions and values that will surpass all trends that will come and go.  It may seem more fun and exciting to incorporate just our own ideas into the wedding planning and forget our parent’s request for certain things to be incorporated in the wedding but a few years later when it is time for our kids to get marry, there will not be any traditions that they can use in their wedding to continue on the lineage, and to remember the family legacy by.  It is short lived to create a wedding and marriage only based on our own needs but will be more long lasting if we are able to let our family be a part of that legacy.

As we watch the Royal Wedding this Saturday, May 19th, we can certainly pick up all the traditions that are still used and most likely new traditions at the same time that will be set forth by Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle.  It will be a wedding that is filled with old traditions that brings us back to a time when fairy tale weddings are possible and to a new time when marriage is not just based on royal agreements but actually based on love and respect for one another.

“Leave a Legacy Worth Sharing!”

The “Motherly Experience”

We have all heard the phrase from online companies promoting their brand on Google, YouTube, and Yelp emphasizing how they provide the best “customer experience” when you do business with them.  The experience starts before you even click the checkout button, it begins when you see the brand’s advertisement or social media posts and then to the brands website, the ease of navigating and shopping, to customer service promptness and finally to the delivery of the goods.  This whole process is all packaged up and labeled the customer experience. If you had a good customer experience with a particular brand, you will surely buy from them again and recommend them to friends and families.

    Our culture puts a lot of care making sure we as consumers have the best customer experience, but what about the “Motherly Experience”?  This may be new to many of us, but our culture should start focusing more on the “Motherly Experience”. This process starts at the planning phase of deciding on a mate and going through the steps of Marriage and finally deciding on having a baby.  This first steps are crucial because it lays the path for the 18 years of “Motherly Experience” that the child will go through. With careful thought and intention on choosing the right husband/wife, you start to build the family structure that will mold the child based on how the parents live out their morals and priorities in life.  Next, the child’s experience will go through stages of uncertainly, rebellion, identity issues which parents will have to learn to adapt, adjust and figure out a resolution of these issues. Be kind but firm in discussing and communicating your thoughts on how to resolve those issues and at the same time give them room to express their feelings on why those issues are occurring.  

Being able to nurture the child’s relationship one step at a time builds self confidence and also lets them know that they are loved no matter how tough things may get. This experience is vital for the child when he/she transitions into adulthood. With the onset of adulthood, the final phases of “Motherly Experience” comes to fruition. You will see how your adult child associates with others in society, how he/she is able to cope with everyday stress and issues and also you will see how they will give love to another person.

 If you created a great “Motherly Experience” in those 18 years, , your child will grow up and be a better contributor to society.  We must learn to make the “Motherly Experience” part of every parents plan in parenthood.  If this template of parenting is duplicated, our world will start to see a decline in bullying, prejudice, suicide and crime.  This is not only a job for mothers but also for dads.  With the Mother’s Day only a few days away, we want to give a warm hug to all mothers out there that have provided that “Motherly Experience” and have done so with a SMILE on their face.

A System of Wellness

In today’s tech savy generation, we are obsessed with boosting productivity in all aspects of our lives, making us constantly looking for ways to improve and often do not leave room and time for self reflection before we jump into new habits and systems.  There seems to be a system of productivity for every industry. From personal to work, we can get overwhelmed with all these systems to make us better and more productive. Overtime, we would probably get all these systems meshed together and their efficiencies will be deflated.

In order to boost productivity, it really does start with our own personal eagerness to get things done.  We should focus on developing our inner core instead of outside forces that can change constantly, thus requiring us to shift from systems to systems.  Begin focusing on increasing productivity within your innner core by developing a PATH mindset. This PATH mindset is quite simple and can be expanded on later once you consistently do it.  It can be used universally in any industry and requires just “You” being present and always showing up. The PATH mindset is simply surrounding yourself with “Positive People” who will lift you up and give you increased enegry. Have an “Attitude” of positivity and humbleness, which will foster positive “Thoughts”, which will lead to “Happiness”.  If you are not happy at the end of what you set out to achieve, the best systems and productivity tool will not make your life any better than it was before. It will only make you busier.

Once you are can attain inner happiness, productivity will no longer be an issue that you will need to tackle.  Having this universal system will make life a little less complicated and more meaningful.  Click on the link below to see how to boost your wellness.
