I have experienced, and still do, many challenges with raising four kids. Some days it feels easier than others. Many times I get asked, “How do you do it?” My answer is that I’ve learned a lot along the way. Understanding the inside-out nature of life has helped me to make a positive shift in my parenting and a transformation in my life. To share it in a nutshell, we all are connected to the Intelligence behind life so we always have access to Wisdom, we were created with the power to think, and it’s our awareness of our thinking that makes our thoughts come alive. Pointing myself back to that has decreased a lot of my struggles. I used to think that my kids’ behavior was what was making me feel so mad and irritated all the time. So, I thought that I needed to control them so their behavior would change and I would feel better. It didn’t work!
When I really understood that my feelings were not being created from something outside of my power to think and that our feelings naturally fluctuate as our thoughts change, that’s when things changed in my life. If I had to sum it up in one word it would be liberating. I realized that trying to control my kids, my thinking, or anything else to change how I’m feeling is not my job to do. It’s the same thing for all of us.
Love & blessings,
