Sometimes you feel that wave deep in your heart. Little ripples sending urges into the intentions of your hands and the meandering of your thoughts.
You know change is going to happen. Exciting, transformative change.
I feel it happening right now. And not just for me, but for those around me.
I grin at them over tea and late night snacking. I want to hug them hard and tell them they kick ass and then grip their hands tight and run after their dreams with them.
What I really need is to hold my candle up to theirs and get my sputter up to a good steady flicker.
We talked about the qualities we want our kids to have, things we want to do with our kids, what our own dreams and goals were around ourselves, our careers and our relationship with each kid.
Stats say you are way more likely to actually do things when you write them down. I think achieving your goals is important (I mean, it is called a ‘goal’ not an ‘it would be nice if’). What might be even more important is actually identifying them. I don’t want to look back twenty years later and think I wasn’t mindful of the days I had to teach and guide my kids. I want to be mindful of how I spend my days and how each week that goes by could be a drop in the bucket on who and where I want to be. Where do I want to be? (Other than doing a killer handstand with my World’s Best Mom mug hosting coffee freshly made by my husband.)
