This is what my 9 year old shared with me at bedtime.
"Mom, what do you do when you worry? When I worry I just let it be. Then, I think about what I want & take action to get it."
I believe our kids come in pure and connected. Then, we project parts of ourselves that we haven’t healed to our kids without evening realizing it.
These patterns get passed down generation to generation until someone is ready to do their inner work.
The reason my son and I have these deep enriched conversations are because I’ve done my intense inner work & continue to evolve.
We show up authentically with each other.
This means loving and supporting one another. This also means calling each out when we don’t have the awareness about ourselves. We do this with love & compassion.
There was a time in my life when I didn’t want to get honest with myself and blamed others for everything that was happening to me.
Sometimes it takes for us to endure a lot of pain to shake things up to get ready to do the work.
That’s how it happened for me. When my co-parent wanted out of our marriage, I hit rock bottom.
😔 I was suffering inside & the pain was so big it caused a shift in me. I thought If I continued feeling this way something really bad is going to happen to me. Then, where would my son be without a mother?
This was my awakening.
I waited till I was 39 to really begin my healing journey.
If I could speak to my 30 year old self or others experiencing this, I would say, the work is so worth it. Life is so much more enjoyable on the other side.
This other side I’m referring to is learning how to love yourself. Being your great self. The person you were created to be. Connecting to the love, happiness, & peace inside you & sharing it with the world. This is what we’re meant to do.
If you’re reading this and struggling with pain or discomfort, I invite you to ask yourself, what is holding you back for wanting more for yourself?
Get in touch with the fears & allow yourself to feel them fully.
Know, this isn’t who you are at your core.
We aren’t our stories.
Take a leap into the unknown because this is when we grow. ❤ - 36 minutes ago
