My Amazing Daughter

100_8527

She knows who she is at an age where I struggled with what to wear to school. (I was often joked for my choices).

She wears what she wants to wear, and does so with pride, at an age when I struggled with my voice. (I was afraid to speak).

She says what she feels at an age when I struggled with standing up for myself. (I often just sat down).

She stands up for herself and her friends at an age when I struggled with math and had a tutor. (Math was a “four-letter word”).

She does her math homework like a champ at an age when I felt scared of my own shadow. (That took over 30 years to shed).

She stands up to her fears at an age when I struggled with wanting to be anyone but me. (That, too, took over 30 years to begin to shed).

My amazing daughter at 8 is herself, fearlessly. Her mother, at 40, is learning to just be. Oh the things she is teaching me!

Namaste.

Writing out my thoughts has helped me to gain a new perspective of myself. In sharing these writings, it is my hope to help others to better understand themselves. It is my belief that with each of us who chooses this path of greater understanding of thy self, that it inspires others to do the same. This building momentum is the force that drives me to share, for in my vulnerability, I find my strength. I believe that you can also find yours there. ~~~In reading some of my posts, you will see that growth is not always pretty. It is in breaking apart and coming undone that a seed sprouts and breaks free of its own captivity. It is also out of mud that the lotus blossoms. ~~~Please join me in seeing the beauty of growth within the deconstruction of our limiting beliefs. ~~T.C.
