Bridge Over Troubled Waters

I very much would like to be a bridge for your troubling thoughts, concerns; your relationship with yourself and/or any other ‘troubled waters’ you may be doing your best (just now) to stay afloat in.

These are troubling times. These are the most unknown times I have ever experienced; our world has ever experienced and, most likely, most of you too. 
My goal here has always been to share my truth and thoughts, and in doing so inviting you to feel, open up and experience You living You through self-love.  
You are unique. You are one of a kind.  You are sensational.  You were born this way purposefully.  
We humans feel.  We humans emote. We humans experience wonderful times. We feel rough times. We think which can be troubling in itself.  Ha!  We dream. We create. We spin when all of these things collide, come together and happen at once.  
May you always come back to this moment here and now available through your breath.  
May you come back to the current goal of your very next step.  Bab…

Birthday

Today is my awesome daughter's 25th birthday!  Whoop, Yes it is!

I find it amazing that I always dreamed of marrying and having children, of raising children.  I never, for whatever reason, found myself dreaming about what life would be like after my child is grown.  I never thought about my interests, plans of what life would be like after my time of being blessed with being needed and being involved in my daughter's growth and her own 'becoming'; about my life after being a mom of young children.

And now here I am.

I always tell her ‘thanks for being my daughter’.   I always say ‘our kids are our best teachers’.   One of my favorite songs for her is ‘I Hope You Dance’ by Lee Ann Womack and Sons of the Desert.   While she was growing up, I know she remembers me singing ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ to her by the Rolling Stones (great lyrics and music).

Our relationship is different now.  It now consists of her 'adulting'.  I am so proud of the young woman she is and the fabulous and brilliant life she is creating, building and so mindful of.

Her favorite color is pink.  Her favorite animal is an elephant.

She was born 9:19 am on Tuesday, November 8, 1994.   She has been and is one of my greatest accomplishments and one of my greatest challenges.  I am so very honored to call her daughter.  I admire her and stand in awe of her.  I sometimes find myself flabbergasted by what she does next.   She is one of my greatest life lessons.  She is one of my greatest joys.

She is way up there on my 'of extreme importance' priority list.

I remember leaving for the hospital close to 5 am.   I had a natural childbirth which consisted of me mostly screaming.  Through her birth, beginning with singing and talking to her in my belly to singing and talking to her as an adult is one of my greatest constant heartfelt connections I have ever known and will ever know. #grateful

May you stop from time to time and relive in your mind and remember in your heart your greatest accomplishments, loves and successes.  May you feel your deep gratitude for these things.  

I am reminded who I was every step of the way.  I was far from perfect and my love for her was always within me circulating its presence.

I know life coaching is my next me; my new agenda; my life as I am now.

May you know in what direction you wish to go and claim it.

Thank you my beautiful daughter for choosing me as your mom and for being you; helping me to create me and affording me one of my greatest privileges which is being your mom.

I believe in you.  Im in awe of you.  I love you.

Always and forever.

Happy Birthday brilliant and beautiful daughter.   May you dance in and through the truth of You.

May you, my gift also; my reader, live innately in and through the truth of You.  Thank You.

Stillness

. . . . . .

. . . . . .

. . . . . .

When you find yourself in stillness, may you be aware of what is going on inside of you...

Are you in a loving, kind and/or open to ease place...

Are you freaked, anxious, worried and/or stressed...

Perhaps, an assortment of feels is what shows up.

May you let full, compassionate breathing in your stillness; as much and as often as possible.

In our mindful stillness, we heal.

In our physical stillness, the earth heals.

In stillness, awareness has the greatest chance to be present.

In awareness and stillness, we can birth new ways for who we want to be going forward; what we want the world to be.

May you be/give the present of stillness.... when possible.

Kumbayah

May you offer harmony and unity between what is going on within yourself and what you are showing and sharing on the outside of You.

This has been my goal for as long as I can remember.   This just may be vulnerability at its depth.

As we show the world our dreams, desires, feelings and truthful emotions, we open ourselves to possible ridicule, misunderstanding, judgment and out right being laughed at or anger, madness and/or hurt coming straight at us.

Ouch.  Hide. Surrender.  Change.   Apologize...

These are things that would penetrate my being and have me believing that I was wrong, bad, hurtful and or too much to handle; too sensitive.

I am learning that if attacked or being on the receiving end of anger or a verbal ‘beat down'...   These attacks have nothing to do with who I am and the open loving truth that is me.   They have everything to do with the person and what is going on inside the person on the defensive and what feels ugly and unlovely to me.  

Ouch.   It stays.

Hide…
