parenting as an adventure

February 8, 2009 at 4:40 am Leave a comment

Today’s adventures…when you wake up, you just never know. That’s what I love about stepping into the flow, instead of plan, plan planning. Uncertainty. It can make us wiggle and squirm because there is an element of scary to it. Yet, watch our kids. They just fall forward with open arms into life. Every moment.
What does it mean to get into the flow?
-several hours a day of unscheduled play time
-minimizing your to-do list (movement, nutrition, laughter, creativity, and maybe a load of laundry or two)
-affirm your priorities every morning (being and connection is more important to me than doing stuff)
-noticing when you are clinging or resisting, taking a deep breath and letting go
-regularly asking the universe for a little assistance in whatever you are needing

Be happier now, living this adventure all the way. That’s the most important “task” of parenting.
