Now what do I do…focus. I know I haven’t posted in a while. I tried so many times but my focus was a little scattered. What am I going to do with my time? I had so many moments of “what do I focus on” now?
I started writing this post above the clouds. A returning from getting my daughter (last born) settled into college. I was having a now what moment right after her high school graduation. I understand that is ok to do so. The different emotions of feeling scared, sad, happy, and down two weeks ago helped. It prepared me for my return flight home alone. Oh yes, I was in my feelings. All the way in them. It’s ok and it’s my right as a mom.
Watching the small and large waves approach the sand was peaceful. Taking time to enjoy the moments, think, and relax.
Gods creation as far as the eye can see.
You see as a mother I cannot problem solve all the time. At some point we have to let them make their mistakes and learn from them. It’s all part of growing up and becoming an adult.
Let your children fly into adulthood. As a mom you know they will make mistakes. No one is perfect. After all, we still make them ourselves. We can only hope that the experiences and knowledge we shared will spare them. Spare tem from making some of the same mistakes we did. Although, that is part of them growing up and traveling their path. As parents we only hope our children won’t do it the hard way. Now what?
When they fall they have to figure out. Provide insight or just be their to listen when they bring an issue to you. Parents want them on the right path and achieving their goals. Not the goals I dreamed for them at birth. As a single mom (divorced), I focused on my two children. I must say my son and daughter make me proud. They are my reason I push myself every day. Now What?
What do I re-focus on? I thought about talking a little selfish time, since they are now both out of high school. Time to relax-relate-release (Whitley voice). Don’t get me wrong, I have every right to take a little time. I devoted my time to my children, home, working and even going back to school (including Grad School). It is now time to adjust the focus. But how can I do that as a parent.
I am fearful of the unknown. The events going on nationwide have me scared and worried. What am I suppose to tell my children, nieces and nephews. I don’t want them rob of their future because someone is playing God and cutting their life short. What can we do and where do we start?
