Today when I dropped M at school she cried and did not want to go. She couldn't explain why and she just repeated 'I don't want to go Mummy '. It was really hard for me to see her holding on to me so hard 😥 My first thought was: take her and leave! But what is the message I send her if I do that. I breathed and looked her in the eyes acknowledging her emotions and let her stay in my arms. Because, yes, at this moment she did not want to go to school. She looked at me and said: ' Mummy it is difficult'. Again, I acknowledged her. I asked her if it would be easier if I stayed for a while. She said yes and sat down with her new friends. After a few minutes, it was time for me to go. She started again to cry. I told her how much I trust her as well as her teacher and that I did see her smile when she participated and played with the others. She accompanied me to the door, hugged me, smiled, high five me and let me go....... if I hadn't taken the time to acknowledge her feelings and instead tried to distracted her, my message of who I am, my acceptance of who she is right here right now would not have been as powerful as it was. She learned healthy resilience today. #consciousparenting#respectfulparenting#yogamom
- just live for the moment, because it is these moments that become sweet memories for the future - -Feeling nolstagic-
Those long endless days filled with carefree laughter,
the stain of wild berries on sun kissed faces and hands,
the feeling of sand inside socks and shoes, between toes from hours of running and playing in the sand,
the joys of just playing with rocks, leaves and twigs...? I remember... like it was only yesterday
A swing can evoke so much childhood memories... What evokes your childhood memories?

"I have met myself, and I am going to care for her fiercely." -@glennondoyle I've been on a serious soul searching journey lately. The theme I continue to end up with is my necessity for serious self love, compassion, and care. I wonder if there are others who need to embrace themselves as well 💕To all out there just trying to survive, sending you all the peace, grace, and positive vibes ✨
