Right now I’m trying to let go of more control as a mother to give my children more freedom. It’s hard. Really hard sometimes. But the results are pretty amazing for them and, ironically, for me.
Right now I’m consciously trying to get enough sleep at night. And drink a gallon of water a day. And staying focused on staying in ketosis to reach my summer goal. (Ketogenic diet: staying below 30 net carbs a day and letting your body physically switch from using carbs as energy to your own fat as energy.)
Right now I’m trying to figure out how to not let the exciting and busy months April and May slip past. How to make sure we take in each day so naturally and intuitively with what is important that there are no regrets that we rushed or ill prioritized our days. My kids are growing up too fast for that.
Right now we’re democratically deciding if we are going on our postponed hike this morning or staying here around the sandbox with all of its earthworms (currently the most popular option). Which, if it is the latter, would mean staying home to explore. Again.
Right now I’m trying to heed the little voice in my head that says today is better spent in the sandbox and rescheduling Annabelle’s hike. That means letting go of the control and seeing what is happily and more engagingly going on right now in front of my children.
And maybe this is the perfect place to begin letting go….
