Fairy Magic Rainbow Wishes
people are having
a hard time
horribly sad matters
of living and dying
on planet earth today
not little life annoyances
but the big stuff of life
Then I hear the little voice...
"Megan, you've been through so much in life. There's so much suffering in the world. It's ok if you just rest and take a break from it all...."
I know that little voice. It got me through such hard times when I was a child. It taught me how to escape when I needed; how to totally check out of this earthly reality that is sometimes fraught with suffering and pain.
Now the little voice tells me, it's ok if...
* I both go to bed early AND sleep in too because I deserve it!
* I miss morning meditation and movement because it's not going to end anyone's suffering.
* I get lazy with deadlines because everyone needs a break sometimes.
This is the voice of little girl me, lost and waiting for someone to save her.
i'm a grown-up
both my parents
i can wait
of my life
no one is going
to come in
and save me
the rest of humanity
they were real
there's no wave
of the wand
all will be
Wish I could say the little girl inside me is all healed and grown up.
All I can say is healing is a process.
Becoming fully who we are here to be is also a process.
But I have learned the gift of supporting my little girl self.
Because most of us today are stressed,
we're trying to change the way we were raised,
and we're healing so we can fully show up for our kids.
Doing this big emotional work to heal and to change old patterns from our childhood is HUGE - and it's totally possible.
It's just more of a journey than a destination.
And it's more fun to have fellow travelers along the way.
So, thank you for reading.
This week, please support that little person inside of you.
Whatever they need to heal, it's ok to give it to them
- even if you're honoring old coping mechanisms.
And it's also ok, when it's time, to give "little you" a pep talk. Tell them it's going to be ok. Remind them how strong they are. And then take that positive step - even if it's a baby one - into today and building the future you.
It's not easy work,
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!
