Natural consequences. We hear and read those two words often. I think of a natural consequence as an outcome not manipulated by us. Example and more about it here:

"We attend parades, drive around looking at Christmas lights, watch movies and the classic Christmas shows, go out for fancy dinners at Holiday decked restaurants, and buy our children lots of gifts. We pack lunches for the homeless and collect food for pet shelters. We are big into the Christmas Spirit- however you define it.

Every year we sing the Santa songs and tell the tales. We just do not pretend that Santa is real. Just like we do not pretend Elsa, Elmo, Harry, or Goldilicks are real."

"I can say this with certainty because I used to be a hot mess. I was a hot mess long before kids and right up until a few years ago. I decided I was unhappy. I decided I wanted things to be different. I decided I did not want to be a hot mess anymore. So I changed."

"The older he got the weirder it felt to force his sacrifice. I recognized the oxymoron that was forced sharing. Intuitively I knew that you cannot require generosity. These were his toys. They were special to him. Other kids were not respectful with his things and they would sometimes get ruined- when he never even wanted to share in the first place." #sharing #kidssharing

"The victims of life and negativity dwellers are the people I want to move away from. How can I move forward, grow, and become better if I listen to gossip and doom? How can I get over that negative part of myself- whose comfort level falls on comfort and doom, if it is prevalent in my life? How can I create growth for my children, if they are surrounded by people who cannot recover from having a lifelong belief debunked- whose need to maintain their personal status quo is so great, that it skews their world view?"
