We sit there as parents and talk about the ‘good stuff’ we do for their development, well being and happiness. Sometimes we address the ‘bad stuff’ but what if it’s really bad? What if a parent is suffering from the confines of the anxious depression experience and not expressing their full potential as an A grade parent? What if exhaustion, sleep deprivation, life is tearing this person down and they feel as though they can’t survive in the world?
I was in that dark space, still peering through pockets of positive parenting practise, imperfect at times and then getting back up again, providing my children the circle of security, releasing the confines of ‘step motherhood’. It started with a thought, an action followed and then the process started to get addictive. I noticed changes in my children that would not have happened had I not facilitated an environment of positive influence and energy. I kept on encouraging myself, I started to see others around me transform magically with the assistance of the multiverse, the intention I was putting forth for my existence provided it for my reality. It’s one step at a time, one thought at a time, self empowerment, belief of internal change for the greater good of your future and these precious beings you are raising. See it as a positive parenting addiction. Seek more of it.
Life will never be perfect but it’s about proactively setting yourself up to be better able to face challenging circumstances. Strengthening yourself from the inside and believing you have the capability to do so. This process has taken time, and continues to grow. It’s a process of learning that I am intrigued by. It’s about attempting to start somewhere. Sometimes we are given tasks to fulfil that seem almost impossible. Starting with believing in the possibility of having inner strength and an inner knowing to change your thought patterns continuing with a feeling of self empowerment. Peace, love and light blessings on these journeys.
