Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
Work Smart Live Smart with Beverly Beuermann-King
On one particular visit home, I learned that my grandma didn’t learn English until she went to public school. Up till then, she spoke German. I had no idea that my maternal grandma came from a German background. I had just assumed that she was English, like my grandpa.
Understanding our heritage is important.
I grew up in a farming family. This meant that the ‘farm’ came first and that everyone in that family was responsible to make the farm successful. Families helped each other, as more often than not, we were related to our neighbours in some way, and that conflict was put aside to get things done. Happy or not.
I see a lot of conflict that happens on family farms when someone new comes into the farm family that doesn’t share those same values to the extent that the rest of the family does.
These values are neither right or wrong, but unless the differences and expectations are talked about, openly and respectfully, the conflict festers and grows.
So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Heritage Day:
Whether you like it or not, heritage is what makes you who you are. Things like values, culture, food, and traditions are all past down. Your heritage is the foundation on which you stand. It is the very thing that has gotten you to where you are now.
Honor your past by the way you carry yourself in the present.
Share your heritage with your children to create a solid foundation for them.
