The other day as I was designing my on-line class for parents....
i was searching the house
for a big piece of paper
to sketch out my ideas
how about cutting open a brown paper bag?
i head to the kitchen cupboard
the first thought that crossed my mind:
Are you sure it's ok to use that paper bag for this project?
i catch myself
is the week's recycling
somehow more important than my life's work?
Whether I'm worthy of a brown paper bag
with feelings of unworthiness
subconscious operating systems
these feelings of unworthiness
so at the root of our struggles
it would be foolish to ignore them
but we often do
to avoid the pain
in my community of families
parents wisely recognize
Stress as the #1 obstacle to positive parenting
The first step to transforming your stress levels from within?
knowing you are worthy
you are worthy of less stress
of having your needs met
feeling good in your body
happy in your mind
peaceful in your heart
fulfilled in your life
so you are your calm & confident highest self
You are worthy.
That's what the brown paper bag taught me.
p.s. A special invitation for to you to join the conversation on all things self-worth related
this week on my blog.
Hi friends, I write from the heart to tell my life story, and the story of those in my neighborhood called life. Research shows that our children's emotional & mental health is contingent upon us parents being able to tell our life story, or "coherent narrative." This is my coherent narrative, my life story in the making, with some of what I love in life too. My goal is to share my life in a way that is real, uplifting & positive- sometimes serious, sometimes fun. In my practice, I inspire parents to empowerment through reclaiming our life stories and learning respectful discipline. My work is my offering to our children- our future. Wishing you all a happy family!
