She is my living reminder that yesterday is gone so what’s the point of wallowing in regret? Beating myself up over past mistakes only deprives me of knowing her today. And today it is my mission to know her more.
If you would like to engage with me in a personal, supportive journey to release old, destructive habits & beliefs so healing shifts can happen in your life and in your relationships, please consider being part of my Soul Shift online course beginning in January.
Although I know that’s not their intention, their bickering and fighting and poking at eachother is enough to frustrate anyone. They’re such picky eaters it makes me not even want to cook. They talk over people after countless requests of patience.
Won’t pick up these toys and leave trails everywhere they go. It just makes me crazy. I don’t expect perfection by any means. I just wish they’d be more attentive about how much I constantly do for and with them and act more grateful. They’re good kids and I’m sure like all other kids but why why why can’t they pick up after themselves.
I love them so much and I really just hope they end up being healthy happy respective adults. Cause moms gonna lose her shit soon. Thank god you remind me there’s more to all the chaos than what meets the eye.
My daughter is so forgiving and sweet. I call her my old soul. My son is a spit fire and loads of fun but off the wall with energy. I’ve never felt more anxiety in life than I feel these days. Ughh. I don’t like feeling that way.
Beautiful. It is never too late people! I was a quick learner and my husband moved slower in this regard but I knew he would get it. He has many regrets but our kids are so wonderfully forgiving and accepting of our flaws.
Just last night my 22 year old made mention that so many of her friends don’t have the type of parents that she has. She is so grateful and is looking forward to breaking an age old cycle in our family line. I can’t wait to watch her be the mom, I had to learn to be.
And she is my best friend and hero. I’m incredibly grateful for do-overs, forgiveness, time, the phenomenal memories we’ve made, her expansive heart and your kind words. What a treasure to discover this voluminous love just waiting there for us.
I had a rough many years as I was in a very unhappy marriage and going through a long and difficult divorce. I feel like time really escaped me. I feel like I missed so much of both of my boys’ lives so far. I’m doing what I can to be more present with them on the days that I have them with me.
I love my boys more than I love myself and all I can hope is that they know that. So thank you for your books. Thank you for sharing so many of your personal experiences. Reading about them makes me feel like there’s hope. Thank you for your posts on Facebook.
Every time I read one of your beautiful posts, it makes me cry because it touches my heart so closely. I’m so grateful that you are loving your girls with everything that you have and are sharing your journey with us so we can love the best way we can too!
