What would happen if as parents we deeply welcomed all the flavours of emotions that come with the journey of parenthood…
How might it fuel us if we opened the flood gates fully to the depth of love and joy that arises when we are present and connect with ourselves and our children
AND what would happen if we deeply welcomed those other emotions we feel as parents, the shame, the guilt, the anger, the boredom, the despair
As Rumi reminds us in the guesthouse
‘the dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond’
And even greater than that what might it make possible if we deeply welcomed all these flavours of parenthood with another, others and in community
Today I WELCOME all my flavours and yours…
