For Daughters on Mother’s Day when their Mothering wasn’t enough…..

I get it.  We all love warm and gushy feelings.  It is far easier to discuss the light and feel good things than to peer into the dark or things that make us feel heavy and burdened because we know what to do with the light.  We can pass the light on, keep it shining and make it even more beautiful if we can. But what about the darkness and heavy feeling topics.  Should they be ignored, unexplored, or forgotten.  After all we wouldn’t even know light if not for darkness.  Technically – Scientifically – the light can not exist without the dark.  Why then do we avoid dark topics?  Especially around those people, places and things that we are oftentimes told we MUST admire because the infallibility of them we perceive based on the character we assume they must possess due to them performing basic deeds and acts.  So if someone donates to charity we assume they are a charitable person.  If someone points out they donated for a tax break we may jump down their throats with all kinds of retorts.  A conversation around the plausibility of their statement isn’t even allowed.  It seems that we may allow positive assumptions around a positive role but shirk negative ones.  But this seems to have it’s limits to certain people.  We may love our family irrespective of their imperfections – but we would not do the same for a described […]

FORGIVENESS?

I DON’T Agree with the forgiveness movement.  I advocate honest change in behavior. I’ve seen many phrases going around that posits forgiveness as a healer, a panacea for a victims anger and discontent over what was done.  However, I know better and anyone else who has been slighted, especially by family or friends, knows better.  Forgiveness is not for the victim, it is for the person being forgiven to feel better.  I am not a fan on rushed feel good moments, because on the other side of that, is an […]

Do parents ever hold their children back?

Children sometimes, oftentimes see change or speaking a family truth as a betrayal to family.  Have you ever had a situation where your child did or said something contrary to what you were accustomed to?  Such as wear different clothes, be different in any way with views and opinions, find different avenues for success, eat differently, or embrace another way of seeing things.  What was your reaction?  Did you embrace it, allowing your child to explore the inner depths of life and self or did you shun it because you simply didn’t understand it?  There are a few things I know are for sure: Children should explore life in a healthy way if you don’t allow them or assist them in processing whatever they are interested in exploring, they will figure it out on their own and/or rebel So, I know many parents want to be closer to their children.  Well, one way is to teach them that you support what they do as long as it is not destructive to the family , themselves or will hurt them mentally, spiritually or physically.  We need to get to the depths of getting youth to analyze their own ideas.  Let’s say your child comes home and wants to explore the GOTH look.  What would you say and how would you react? In years past I probably would have been like “oh, its just a phase and weird”. Now I have the spiritual maturity […]

“Mothering Ourselves”

Mothering is truly the highest calling.  Children believe their MOTHER to be GOD.  As they should.  Mommy gives birth, teachers, steers, gives insight, loves unconditionally, is a constant person children want to lean on and is ever present and even omniscient.   However, many mothers feel out of sorts, discouraged, frantic and overwhelmed.  How are there such low feelings in some about such a high position in society?  First, mothers are given so many messages about what they should be by society, i.e., soccer mom, vixen mom, serious mom, push […]
