I went through a core values practice this week.
I sat down and got real. Who am I? What am I doing?
What is the purpose of lil omm- who are we ?
It’s all integrated.
Here it is. Feel free to copy and paste.
I posted in my office and dedicated my mat practice to this today.
I have been trying to get quiet. While life speeds by at a pace I could never actually keep up with
I am just slowing it down.
Honoring the word no. Savoring the quiet.
Leaving open blocks of unplanned time.
Just really breathing. Inhale expand, exhale contract.
I have a number of huge things I am thinking through. What is to come? For now, this will do. A snuggly and sweet 5 year old who is ever changing and growing. I am amazed at how she is. I see her now as she is. Her own person. Moving into a new parenting stage, relationship with her. letting her go. Watching her soar. Trusting we did the best we could the first 5 years.. Since now her world expands. This moment is real, it’s all I’ve got.
I am slowing down so that I can be clear. it not always clear where this path will go.
Trust the process, trust the knowledge that surrounds you. Let it guide your way. Get quiet.
go for it milo.
you have the world in front of you.
I cant imagine who you will evolve to be. you shine in this world as my son, my light.
you make us laugh & snuggle up like a cub.
3 whole months of deep breaths& health is a gift.
Being your mom is quite the adventure.
I was telling someone yesterday about your birth & our pregnancy together.
oh buddy, you really teach me how to pause and make sure I practice. You show me how much work I still have. Thank you for this gift. the deepest love.
coming home to the intensity of DC has taken a toll on me. I spent so much time alone this summer, close to the ocean. Now I only see oceans of people and cars and lots &lots of over thinking.
I live in the most educated place in the US. people are smart and live with their brains.
I choose to live with my heart.
I am not sure I fit in here anymore.. at this pace, in this life, here?
I have fear about whats to come.
So I am reaching out-
calling friends, reading poems, sleeping whenever I can and hugging my kiddos too much.
I know the answers are inside me.
I am my own beloved.
