Every Life, develops in stages that are programmed into our bodies and our psyches.
We run into trouble when we are trying to live one stage, when we are supposed to be in another. The inner transformation from one life stage to another is a gradual process, like the opening of a flower. You don’t see it it all at once, and suddenly, there you are!
There are rites of passage that we experience as we grow and mature that can be exciting and painful, deep and wide. You should not be thinking the same thoughts at 50, that you did at 20.
Life is beautiful, magical and cruel and ugly. It is all a part of the process.
Though at times I miss my cute babies, I would not change this place I am in for anything. I am coming into my Regency, (I am become a better version of my younger self, before family, children and obligations.)
I am bringing all the wisdom from those middle years of self sacrifice and the expansive love of having children- and I am now creating my masterpiece, my life on my terms. I hope you are too!
