DAY 53: LET ME BE YOUR ONE AND ONLY

G and I are hanging out on my cruise liner of a bed, eating savory mini crackers from Trader Joe’s. He’s watching some asinine program about one of the guys from “Jackass.” I’m trying to pretend that I’m not paying attention. It’s perfect.

Motherhood is a truly bittersweet experience. It’s my opinion that I have been letting my kids go since the very moment they were born. And it’s not easy. It is so hard to love with this kind of intense ferocity, in full knowledge that one day, sooner rather than later, if you have done your job well, you will be releasing your kid completely to share with the universe.

Tonight though is one of those sweet affirmation moments. I chuckle at something truly mundane and G laughs and grabs my hand. And we are okay; sharing our love for one another in the most old-fashion of ways.

It’s superb.

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
