Hey guys! I'm still coughing terribly so no vids for a while, that's good though, change is good! I just wanted to share a little miracle story...
I went to visit my parents because the little person (pictured above) demanded some time with grandma and papa. As we sat, my dad tells me that, as he was driving the other day, it hit him that he was "in charge of [his] life". My dad's a responsible and conscientious person, he loves to golf and enjoy life with friends and family so what he was saying was bigger than this...it was about letting go of shoulds and feeling responsible to other's in a way that took away a sense of freedom. Bye bye people pleasing and feeling out of control. He sounded so happy and talked about realizing that he has love...he is loved by us and that's all that matters. As he expanded on his thoughts...he changed my life. I love my dad.
I needed to hear this. I like to do things *right* so I sometimes get stuck in crossing t's, dotting i's, checking in with all involved to make sure there's an understanding, blah, blah. On one hand, I tend to be a clear communicator, on the other hand, there is little satisfaction in people and system pleasing as people and systems tend to do whatever they will do regardless of how well I communicated :) This gave me a little sense of freedom to live from the heart...from my values...from my priorities. Yessss! *raises arms in victorious stance*
Happy Saturday guys! I'm off to enjoy this life that I'm in charge of :)
