A Mother's Role

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

As I sit here this afternoon, I am reflecting on the role I have as a Mom.  Parenting at my best seems to be served by me being clear about what is mine to do and what is not mine to do.  Unconditional love based in a strong sense of equanimity, self compassion and compassion for my two daughters.

Today my daughter asked if she could have a sleepover with one of her friends who is struggling.  We already have a full weekend planned.  I have a back that is hurt and just in general value and understand that by taking care of myself, I take care of others, too.  So I have set an intention to honor this and not give in to every request my daughters have.  So I set a boundary defining what I could do and what I could not do.

This situation and many others have helped me define what is mine to do as a Mom:

What is not mine to do:

Each situation helps me learn more about myself.  As I make mistakes and try to do what is not mine to do, I see the result of this.  I forgive myself and I try to do something different in the future.
