Do you know what next action you're committing to? A new Self Coaching tool has been added to the website. Please download it, use it and tell a friend. We need more moms taking steps toward healthier versions of themselves. When we're healthier, our kids are healthier. Let's get started.
I've had a recurring thought over the last few days. Partly because I'm thinking about what we will grow on our small patch of Earth this spring, but also because I'm revisiting expressions of art that I love and having different experiences with them.
Interestingly, as I also explore images and pictures of ideal lives, seasons, expressions of health and well-being with women, I'm reminded that we're challenged to hold these images with room for change, refinement, and editing. In fact, the picture simply holds the seeds for the growth like with a plant. The expression of an oak tree is IN the acorn, but the acorn will fall away as the tree is expressed. There is no less value of the acorn yet we tend to hold our acorns, forgetting that they're meant to change into something far greater.
I'm also contemplating the the "outcomes"; the seemingly perfected pieces known as masterpieces (books, paintings, scripts and screenplays, etc) and how they still change as we observe them and experience them differently as we change and grow.
I saw a daffodil yesterday and my forsythia is blooming. Signs that winter is loosening it's grip and change comes. I'm choosing to loosen my grip and opting to allow it.
May our seeds bring bountiful and beautiful expression ...in the sphere we're in now...and for others when we're no longer.
What are seeds are you holding onto? Are you willing to see what might grow?
It's the little things, Mom. The small acts of kindness you express in caring for yourself and the people in your small part of the planet that keep the darkness at bay.
For me, it might look like a walk (alone, with a friend, or a child), a cup of tea on a chilly day, my morning shake, clean sheets, fresh flowers, warming the car before kids load up, some extra thought into the meal planning to keep it fresh, healthy and engaging, taking the time to call an elderly relative, sending soup to a family with a new baby or health challenge, answering the phone with a smile, pausing to acknowledge someone's help or good deed...really, it comes down to moving slow enough to notice the details and consciously choosing how I want to participate. I choose, the best I can, the acts of kindness and love.
Will you tell me some of the "small acts" you choose?
Thank you to all of you who join me on this path!
