Are you a parent to adult children? If so, isn't it a unique transition? I'm learning that in life, sometimes the only thing we can control is how we react to moments. It's rewarding and overwhelming all at the same time. I'm learning to accept and respect their decisions that may be different than our own. I'm learning to replace my own worries and concerns with faith and trust in how we raised our children.
Curious what parenting life lessons you may be learning along the way?
As a nurturer, I'm admittedly learning how to not let my own emotions and energies overwhelm me during this transition. I'm learning to take care of myself first and not my children. A weird, yet inspiring time in my life that I notices actually helps them that I do this! I take comfort in knowing that I have and am doing the best I can. I'm reminded to be gentle with myself and not loose my own balance in life, when theirs falls out of balance. I'm grateful, happy and proud of the life I created that includes: health, family, marriage to my very best friend, teaching, walking, and this wonderful hobby of ours.
