I am beginning to feel certain that "normal life" is uncertain.

And with that certainty comes a bit of tranquility, a settling in, and reflecting on and cleaning up my own inner world.

I recommit to staying focused on the only thing I can control which are the thoughts I allow into my mind, and the perspective from which I choose to look upon my outer world.

This morning I was inspired by this quote from astrophysicist, Janna Levin: "We are all navigating an external world—but only through the prism of our own subjective experience." "The majesty of the universe is only ever conjured up in the mind."

We can't go outside, so let's go inside. ––What type of magic will you conjure up for your day today?! ?

life coach rona 20 02 09 letting go

I waited most of my life for her, almost 40 years

then, she was my life.

I worried about her

then, I learned to see that she is handling things on her own.

Now, I go back to my own life

richer for the experience, the love, the connection, the profound joy

but poorer for the loss of her light in my day-to-day, almost moment-to-moment existence.

 

Strange thing, this thing called motherhood.

Part of me wants to let her go––I am ready.

Part of me never wants to.

But the greater part of me knows that it is time,

so I do.

 

I begin again.

Such is the nature of life. ?

 

(For all of those mommies (and daddies!) learning to make peace with their babies having become young adults––you are not alone. ??)
