Lovely

I came across this blog and I will be spending some time reading and getting inspired.  Check it out http://iamforkids.wordpress.com/about-arna-baartz/

These next words she wrote particularly resonated with me:

“I knew that to connect with my own happiness and joy, I would be gifting my children, at the very least, with the heightened potential to connect with their own.”

The world is so busy and we are so pushed in every direction to give our children opportunities.  Even those that feel they are taking it easy and not following the rush often are doing immeasurably more than past generations and they are STRESSED and stumbling not really able to honour their own selves and their own needs.  What does that teach our children really?

Slow down or not but honour your self and your own energies.  Life is a gift to be treasured – embrace what you can and show up to your children brightly and truly as you are.  You probably knew this when you are young but have forgotten – you are special and unique.  Your gifts as a mother are available only to your children when you can be yourself – truly and authentically.  It’s magic!
