It doesn’t make sense to call ourselves ugly, because we don’t really see ourselves. We don’t watch ourselves sleeping in bed, curled and silent with chests rising and falling with our own rhythm. We don’t see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and glowing. You don’t see yourself looking at someone with love and care inside your heart. There’s no mirror in your way when you’re laughing and smiling and happiness is leaking out of you. You would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are if you saw yourself in the moments when you are truly yourself.

Love you so much mum. Thanks for making the best weekend ever. Honestly you’re everything to me and the girls and really I can’t do half as much without your support in taking care of them when you’re here. You’re the best grandma and mum in the world and I think maybe I need to keep on reminding you that. And reminding you how amazing you are.

I lost my best friend, someone I loved very much, to the horrible horrible disease that is depression.

I loved him very much.

So if you need help, please ask for it.

You deserve to be alive. You deserve to feel better.

Please ask.

I promise things can get better then what you’re feeling.

The road to positive parenting and it being an imperfect experience

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.
