Episode 110 of podcast Being well with Lauren
True strength comes NOT from fighting or flighting BUT from sitting in the silence
As a single Mum, age 51, with four kids, life can be challenging. One of the challenges I continue to face is the precarious ever-changing balance between mothering and maintaining my sense of self.
How do you keep a sense of calm in the mayhem of your life?
It is Sunday morning. I have just got back from basketball
practice, and I have tried( emphasis on the word tried) to clean
the house. I have picked up banana peels and apple cores. I have
cleaned out the garage. I have washed dishes, put a wash on, Put
washing away, cooked food for the next three days( I hope the food
lasts that long)cleaned the kitchen, vacuumed and somehow the house
still looks pretty terrible. Yes, my life with four kids life can
be quite challenging. One of the issues which keep coming back to
test me is how to be a Mum( I love being a Mum) without it becoming
my only label. After all, Mothering is one of the labels I wear
among of so many labels. I am not one story I am many stories.
Sometimes in life parenting can tend to dominate our sense of self
and like a tsunami drown out everything else. Thats why It is
important to find ways to always maintain a sense of self, but this
is easier than it sounds.
