I think I’m onto something. The anxiety in me has been high – feels like everything’s been caving in – but I keep telling myself, don’t give up – it always gets extremely hard right before a major breakthrough – whether it’s pertaining to a goal – or just figuring something out.
So I’ve really just been hanging on by a thread, but hanging on, none the less…wondering if everything that’s happening is just bad karma – and that I should just accept my punishment.
I had come to the conclusion that maybe the rest of my days are just to be a good mom. That’s it. Cook, clean, run the girls to their activities, etc.
But it hit me today – all that’s teaching the girls is to cook, clean, run errands for their kids – because they learn, mostly by example.
Yes, that’s wonderful ….but it’s not enough.
I want them to have a dream and see it through. I want them to go to beautiful places. I want them to find their talents and hone them. I want them to have fun with their friends. …and be a good friend.
I want them to recognize what’s wrong with our world and reach out to people in need.
The only way that’s going to happen is if they see me do it. NOW. It’s action time.
I may not have the support I wish I had. (I miss venting to my mom so much!) I may have no money. (I’m at rock bottom, man!) But, it’s no excuse, now that I’ve figured this out!
Most importantly, I’ve got them – and that’s the most wonderful thing in the world!
