We posted this article on our social media. And with the power of synchronicity, this is what I have been meditating on for the last week – #resilience. I think that with eh amount of #stress I keep hearing kids are having at such a young age, this may be one that they need to put in practice, along with their parents.
How important is resilience? It could have long-term health implications. A study published in the February 1, 2016, issue of Heart found that young men with low-stress resilience scores were 40% more likely to develop high blood pressure later in life. Read more here!
This has been the most trying time of parenting. My son is so intelligent and comprehension level through the roof! But to go to the bathroom…No, mommy! I had to sit with myself, let go of my ego and expectation of him to let it happen in his time. We are better than before but still not there. However, no longer do I or his father stress about it; just our saying…he’ll get there.
Apparently I’m not alone, as other boy mother’s say the same…
Advice is always welcome!!!
I tried this during my pregnancy, after 10 years of the practice and just could not do it for long on my own. But as I spent the this past Thu. in guided meditation, it became clear that it would have been better served if I had done it with a teacher. Why? There was a women who sat next to me who said all her fears, especially self-doubt, had come up more. She began to cry…as I offered one piece of advice to her – Let Go! It made me realize how much this would have been helpful to me and can be for others.
It hit me one day, while watching “The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet” on Lifetime, that the new culture is 40. Not only having a baby at the age of 40, the transition that comes with entering this age is more than a notion. With re-entering the world of journaling, I shared with my over 40 friends my thoughts and feelings, and the journey was the same – men, business, children and sex. So why not blog about it…
