Allowing Our Experiences
I've been in a place of great focus, self care and family dedication. With that I've come to understand myself in new ways. I'm connected to everyone as they are to me, yet we have our own experiences that are unique to us. Each experience is ours to own, process, enjoy, dread, fear, challenge, embrace or celebrate.
As a mother, I have a new found muscle, working very hard. It's allowing each person big or small the rhythms of their flow, allowing the natural development of experiences, ideas and testing of the waters. Each time that I do this, there is a space of honesty and truth. There is a process I get the honour to be part of with them and I get to provide my unconditional support in their soul's journey, which in turn fills and heals me.
I have two very will filled boys, big thinkers, very expressive and empathetic. Today my youngest 2 1/2 year old decided he was going to refuse to try and take a bowel movement before we left for the park for over an hour. With the help of my oldest son, we encouraged, prompted, explained what would happen if we pooped at the park, yet he would not budge.
Instead of pushing forward more and trying to power struggle the bowel movement I brought a box of baby wipes. I explained the risk he was taking and he was ok with it. So we got to the park, half an hour later and he says "Poo poo is coming Mommy", long story short we danced around the act of public release until he couldn't hold it any more. I set up a blanket over a bench to hide under and in the snowing beauty there he dropped three logs. :)
Thank goodness for the baby wipes and the public garbage can outside, RIGHT!
That was not all, because upon returning to the park and climbing up the ladder he finished in his pants. I will spare the details on that one :)
It was humorous! It was this experience I shared with him today that inspired this blog. It was his choice and his experience to understand what happens when we don't listen to our bodies. We processed how it felt, what we would do next time and off we went.
So as a mom and a child that sure did push the limits and refused to be in the boxes most of my life. I believe that we all need our experiences and as family members, loved ones, parents, friends, we can all be witness to the outstanding experiences we all go through. Knowing that changes are constant, with support, assisted navigation and unconditional allowance, we respect each other's lives, hearts and souls.
To our experiences, our flows and all that in between.
So much Love,
