- The Irony
Though we now have more instantaneous and extensive communication (of a sort) with each other than ever before, we feel more fragmented and lack a sense of community and belonging. Even as our species has exponentially multiplied and overrun the planet, we suffer from an epidemic of loneliness. Then again, it's not all that surprising since, to paraphrase Carl Jung, loneliness is not a matter of how many people you surround yourself with, but rather, of how able you are to really communicate, deeply, about the things that matter most to your heart and soul.
Yearning for Connection
LET'S FACE IT: We all yearn to give and receive love. We want richer relationships, deeper friendships, more closeness and community in our lives. We may even notice, in some quiet moments, that we’re dogged by a nagging sense of separateness.
AND YET, when we look closely, we find that we are in pain because we have been shooting ourselves in the foot! We realize that we, ourselves, are sabotaging the connection we want — with our own defensive conditioning, our old self-protective patterns of fear, dependency, and blame. We find that we are hiding from each other, fighting with each other, erecting barriers to love.
SO... How are we to drop this old rusty armor?... So that we may, at last, see each other clearly… hold each other closely?

- Recently I had a clear example of this.. As much as you try to control things around you, it's simply IMPOSSIBLE to control what others think. All you can do is manage YOUR own actions, responses & energy as best as you can and LET IT GO.
Let go of the result, let go of how you want to receive it, let go of your expectations. Let go of your anger and frustration. Allow yourself to FEEL, allow yourself to DESIRE, and then let it go to the Universe! 🌎💫
It's a CHOICE to let something rile us up! It's our choice whether we ALLOW other people's opinions to define or limit us.
Life is too short to worry about what other people are thinking all the time. Actually, most people are preoccupied
with the same thing..how you view them and how it makes them look and WIFT (what's in it for them).
TIP: If you want to connect effectively with others, try putting yourself in their shoes.. and realize that perhaps there's another way of looking at the situation (that's not necessarily better or worse than yours).. and find a way to communicate that understanding - Your EFFORT counts!
Remember, we're all human and have moments we could have handled things better. Practice forgiveness and honour yourself too.. You have every RIGHT to be the wonderful, beautiful, quirky, sometimes moody, AWESOME person you are! We all have a good side and a shadow self.
Respect yourself and give others the grace to be themselves quirks and all..And then watch your relationships flourish 😍✨ because everyone just wants to be loved and accepted 😃🙏

- Massage Therapy. Give (masculine energy) and receive (feminine energy). 💆♀️
- Every Sunday after I drop my son off at vocal lessons, I stop by a local coffee shop and sit across from this couple and their dog.
They’ve become like a soap opera to me...
They have these super interesting conversations about the most random things.
I’ve come to learn that every Saturday they both contribute 12 questions to a document and then during their Sunday coffee, they discuss the questions.
“Do you remember a time that your mom was embarrassed”
“List your favorite fast food items”
“What’s one thing that surprised you about your grandmother”
“What’s the most shocking thing you learned in high school”
The whole time, someone has their hand on their dog and she’s constantly soothed. Her hair flies toward me as the beach wind blows and by the time I leave, I look like I own a dog.
This is a wonderful 40min of my week. This couple inspires me and I want to learn more about them. I love that they share this time together and are truly interested in one another.
I need to find this time in my life for these conversations...quality life moments!

- Не пейте вино🍷 только из тех соображений, что это делает вас в глазах других людей гурманом🤔 или знатоком вин. Это нелепо🤯
Если вам действительно нравится то, что налито в ваш бокал🥂, постарайтесь узнать историю этого вина🍾, а если оно вам не по вкусу, найдите другой объект для траты ваших денег...🤗 .
Вообще, независимо от того, что вы смотрите🖥 и читаете📚, старайтесь каждый день узнавать что-нибудь новое💡и рассказывать об этом другим☝️
Очень важно подпитывать и тренировать свой ум🧠, находиться в постоянной готовности воспринимать новую информацию🎩
PS: На счет вина🍷 действительно важно и нужно задуматься🤔
А ты как к этому относишься?

- I asked you all to share with me something you wish your caregiver never told you. This was on the heels of a prior post on “dumping/venting” vs sharing + being honest with our children. It’s an important discussion to have, as the best way to shift your own parenting is to take a glimpse at the way you were parented.
The most common themes were:
Details of marital problems/affairs
Bashing other parent
Mentions of suicide/self harm
Regrets of pregnancy
Blaming child for lack of resources/intimacy/connection/freedom.
I know, it’s heartbreaking to share those. For a lot of you, it may have been the first time you ever thought about it. As a parent now, you may find a similar pattern in your own parenting. This also may alarm you.
We repeat what we don’t repair. It’s not your child’s responsibility to carry the burden of your painful childhood. They aren’t to blame, nor is it their job to fix what is broken in you. It’s not their job to understand your hurts.
I see you wanting to break the cycle. It takes awareness + intention. One major starting point to keep in mind is SAFETY. Safety is what we need to explore, connect, learn, and try new things. It’s needed at the core of life’s essence. If sharing something jeopardizes your child’s safety, everything beneath the surface will suffer.
When we place our own need for connection, sympathy + comfort above our children’s, this is how their safety crumbles. This chart will help you see the delicate balance between connecting + being honest, while staying mindful of this safety first and foremost. Often, it’s a little tweak in verbiage.
Children are very intuitive. They know when something “isn’t right.” However it’s up to you to use discretion + appropriate language to ensure their safety is supported. This will empower you to break cycles + stop the harmful patterns that hurt you as a child for good.

- I’ve shared before that when I first became a mother I parented from a place of fear + anxiety. This revealed itself through lots of yelling, unhappiness + inconsistency.
Through my own healing I have become more aware, and thus have been able to show up as the mother I want to be for my children.
These statements have helped me a lot. Often times we parent out of habit. We say things we heard as a child from our own parents, and are influenced by what other parents say around us now. The most empowering shift in your parenting I believe is to become conscious of these habits and make slight tweaks that have an enormous impact.
I have found that the simple phrase “are you scared or hurt?” has helped me understand, tend to and nurture my children through their tears. Before, I feared their pain, because in my eyes it reflected a reminder that I failed, messed up, or wasn’t good enough AGAIN. My insecurities would rush to fix or quiet their feelings. It wasn’t fair to them. What I know now, is it’s an opportunity to connect. I can guide them through their pain, helping them find language to describe what their feeling and move that energy out.
How has your own healing sparked a deeper, more authentic relationship with your child? Are you shifting + becoming more aware?👇🏼
