Children open our hearts to more love and compassion than we ever thought possible. They also open our hearts to vulnerability, fear and overwhelm like we've never experienced before.
Motherhood is a spiritual journey (especially when you add ADHD). It is “full catastrophe living” at its finest (thank you Jon Kabat-Zinn).
I wouldn’t have believed it if you told me before I had them. No one can quite prepare you for the beauty, the fear and everything in between.
Nothing in life brings up our unresolved fears, hurts, anger, sadness, resentment, insecurities, trauma, abuse…like motherhood. All of our wants, needs and shortcomings from childhood come screeching forward.
You see, our children are our greatest teachers. They are mirrors into our souls. They push our buttons and show us what we need to work on. They give us unlimited opportunities for growth.
We can either resist what they are here to teach us or we can accept the challenge. Shine the light of awareness on what they are showing us and take the steps necessary to BEcome the role models they deserve. One Foot Up at a time.
It is a choice we all have. Accept the challenge or resist it.
I chose to accept the challenge.
It’s a work in progress. I’m a work in progress. It’s an everyday, all day job.
It’s the single most rewarding decision I have ever made for myself, my family and everyone in my life
I am doing it and so can you.
