I guess “S” for “Sebastian” is what the feeling of movement made! John and I left the baby grandson in Charleston, SC late this morning – after just one more hour of babysitting so my son could mow the lawn. Mom was at “an appointment” that was revealed on FB as a hair salon visit. I love how they are being generous to themselves!!
As usual, my three-day visit gave me daily opportunities to have feelings and judgements bubble up, more chances to notice those beliefs and Old Stories that let me me separate from others.
After ten years of using the tools of Radical Forgiveness I can actually notice the feelings and judgements – and love myself for having them! Yahoo!
I can now love myself for parenting MY way of doing the mothering myself, excluding my husband and other potential caretakers by doing 100% of the nursing, homemaking, and infant care. I can now love myself for being “right” about my way and then blaming my ex for being distant from the boys. I thank him for doing this healing dance with and for me!
I honor my children for choosing their own way of shared parenting and community-building so they can continue their own work while raising a wonderful child.
And now, I move on! I move on to express myself as a walking radical forgiveness coach!
I step joyfully and diligently into my job as host of HeartSinging Walk Community! Creating a space for courageous heartsingers to design radiantly fulfilling walks of the Appalachian Trail.
