I just went through a very interesting Christmas. I had the opportunity to move closer to my daughter who had distanced herself from me and at the same time, had a rather emotional rearrangement of the relationship with my youngest daughter. Even though energy healing is a wonderful tool, I learned through the experience that it still remains important for me to feel my feelings along with tapping and Ho'oponopono. Wow! I'm exhausted after two days of crying my heart out. The tears still come but they are more happy tears celebrating the growth and newfound independence and continuing strength of my "baby" daughter who inspires me so much.
2010 has been a crazy year. Lots of changes and adjustments. I appreciate my Spark friend, Men2Be, who turned me on to running and who lead me through my first half marathon. What a kick! I appreciate running my second half marathon with my "baby" daughter. It was so much fun! I'm looking forward to many years of running.
My goal for 2011 is to learn how to relax and just have fun and not always be dwelling on what I need to fix in myself and others. To set aside time for healing and not be gripped by it 24/7. I also hope to have a wonderful second half year in my new job.
Coming to terms with the new relationship with my daughters has been interesting. At every stage of life, children pull away in a new way to stand alone and prepare for their changing roles. It's a continuous opportunity for self growth, even though, sometimes, that growth can be painful.
