LETTING OUR HEARTS LEAD THE WAY


When I was a young mother, I was told that mothers should play all these roles with their kids...


I SHOULD be my children's

teacher,

speech therapist,

psychologist,

child development specialist,

playmate,

entertainer,

librarian,

social convenor,

extracurricular activity planner...


One day, I had enough, and I said, "I just want to have a RELATIONSHIP with my kids! Why can't I just focus on THAT?!"


I started shedding myself of all the extraneous "roles", and started to truly have FUN with my kids!


In the same rebellious fashion, I tossed out the bedtime story, and I found myself telling funny spontaneous bedtime stories to my kids...


These stories were super FUN for me because I could use my imagination, my sense of adventure, my sense of humour...


And much to my surprise, in the middle of the story I found myself becoming my child's TEACHER! I started teaching them about...

animals,

evolution,

"the birds and the bees",

babies,

nutrition,

money...


And I found myself becoming my child's PSYCHOLOGIST... I started helping the main character regulate emotions that were strikingly similar to those of my son... ;)


And I thought... "Wow... I am playing the ROLES... without any effort at all..."


Of course I was...


When we are allowed to focus on the mother-child RELATIONSHIP... everything else follows naturally...


We can throw out the rule book... and let our HEARTS lead.


Our hearts have a whole lot of wisdom...


All we have to do is trust it! <3


To your Happy Mother Life...
