Do you ever feel like you should be mothering a different way? Or guilt about how you mother your child(ren)?
Yesterday and today I’ve come to some conclusions and had some awareness moments about how I’m mothering our daughters and the life we’re living.
- Our life is our life. It’s just the way it is. Translation- Just because others live a more traditional or different life does not mean I need to (or should) feel guilty about our life. I need to embrace our life more so we truly live it.
- Adventures are just part of our life. As I noted on an Instagram post yesterday, I’ve surrendered. I’ve surrendered that our girls will be taken on spontaneous adventures because it’s who we are. I’m done feeling guilty about interrupting their quiet home moments for adventures waterfall hunting, hiking, making art with seaweed, and more.
- I need to guide our daughters as best as I can. Our life dictates different guidance. Our girls need to be aware of certain elements, just as any other mother’s life dictates the guidance she needs to impart on her child(ren). I need to teach our girls about walking on moss-covered rocks up waterfalls, about balance, and more. I am and will.
That’s it in a nutshell. Sometimes the biggest thoughts are not the largest posts. I’ve also come to the conclusion that I need to make time for blogging a bit more, and so I will.
What have you discovered about yourself? About your mothering? About your life?
