Happy Wednesday to all my lovely readers! ¬†Today I wasn’t sure what I wanted to write about and then I received an email from one of my soulful clients. ¬†I called her and asked if I could share her words with you all today, anonymously of course. ¬†She so kindly agreed! ¬†Her email reminds us all that parenting is a practice. ¬†One where we take the time to be aware of all that is happening around us. ¬†Some days we fall and other days we simply rock it. ¬†On the days we fall it is more about the mending of each others emotions than the fall itself. ¬†It is a lesson in being kind to ourselves as parents within our own practice. ¬†This is not a performance, there is no rehearsal. ¬†So as you read this lovely mothers wisdom below know that she was reflecting, or shall we say taking inventory of her own state and how that affects her practice.

“Yesterday I had a tough time keeping my cool in the car with the kids. ¬†We had a very long and busy day and there were times that I know I should have walked away. ¬†Its a work in progress for sure and I can see that it’s my attitude and emotions that need to be under control before I can expect John’s to be” ¬†

Wishing you all a beautiful practice.

If there is anything that we wish to change in the child, we should first examine it and see whether it is not something that could better be changed in ourselves.
