How you and your child can learn from your history

Our daughter keeps asking to see photos of me as a baby.  She’s fascinated!  I keep meaning to dig them out at my parents.  (Yes, they actually have them stuck into photo albums, not saved and hidden from view on a hard drive and in ‘clouds’…)

There’s one particular photo of our daughter when she was around 6 months old in her bouncer.  She’s the complete and utter, absolute double of me as a baby in this photo (except her eye colour and tone, which are 100% hubby’s – the shape of the eyes and the gaze are absolutely me though…)

I love looking back at photos.  It’s fascinating that my baby face started out so soft and unweathered!  I wonder now what the first real stress was that I experienced and what effect that had on my features.  And then as to how much more stress and lack of sleep over the years contributed to my ‘now’ face!  (No, I’m not doing before and after pics!)

But it’s life, isn’t it?  It’s what makes us, us.

how you and your child can learn about history pin1 wellbeing inspiring plans nurture teach parenting life virtually all sorts virtuallyallsorts

How we deal with life and stress, of course, can determine how rugged and weathered we look years down the line.  Some of it’s genetics but if I knew growing up what I know now about life, about healthy living, about the effects of ‘what goes in, comes out’ (so to speak!), I would very likely have had a different approach, have been kinder to my younger self!  Maybe even have taken things more slowly…

I certainly deal with stress in a different way now.

I’m not even sure how I dealt with such things as exams, boys, student life and budgeting.

But nowadays, I choose to relax with candles, yoga, meditation and reiki, and I also eat lots of fruit and veg.

My older, wiser self would, no doubt, be critical of my much younger self.

And as our daughter grows up, I know she takes it all in because she’s asked to do yoga with me.  She asks which crystals are which.  She notices things.  She copies my healthy eating.  She copies my attitude to others and adopts my kinder, more patient qualities (hark at me!)

Being a parent is my chance to re-write history, to open doors for our daughter, to open her mind to possibilities that my younger self knew existed.

I’m using my knowledge and turning my story, my history into her-story

“It’s time” ~ poem

How are you doing with your resolutions and goals?

 

Were they set at the beginning of the year?

 

Or did you say to yourself…

its time poem goals plans opportunity chance white space

 

I said that to myself and I started my gratitude journal in December one year instead of 1st of January!  It helps me to focus on my happiness each week.

 

It’s such a great tool for focussing on gratitude that I thought “why wait?”

I saw little point in waiting because…

 

When you wait you do nothing,

you make time stand still.

You don’t tick or tock,

you procrastinate at will.

 

 

When time stands still,

the world still moves on…

Life goes on around you

it waits for no one.

 

 

If you wait for a chance

you’re a fool to be sure;

you should try all the locks

to open the door!

 

 

For when you wait, you do nothing,

chances are you’ll lose out;

don’t wait, you can do it,

of that there’s no doubt…

A perfect messy place ~ poem

a-perfect-messy-place-make-create-do-garden-outdoors-parenting-poem-poetry

Before we moved house, I wrote this poem about a messy place session in our garden.  Now, the words don’t really apply because our garden is small and we haven’t got any grass!  But the sentiment’s still there 🙂

A perfect messy place

“Let’s make something”,

Said our daughter to me,

As she ran out on

The grass with glee.

~

Her little toes,

Her little feet,

The sun was out,

And what a treat!

~

From our treasure hunt,

We had some ‘loot’

We’d had fun,

We’d had a hoot!

~

Making in the garden…

A perfect messy place;

A moment to treasure,

At a leisurely pace.

~

With paper, glue,

Sparkles, glitter,

Butterflies fluttered,

Birds went twitter.

~

What a lovely moment,

What a lovely day,

But the best bit?

Hardly any tidying away!

~

Do you go outside ‘creating’, whether you’re all wrapped up or bare foot in the warmer months?  I’d love to know!  Please comment below or tweet me @AllSortsHere

Tell me about your mighty moment

Life has opposites.  It’s how we make sense of the things.

You might say that we need to experience the opposite to make sense of the ‘other’.

mighty moment full white believe belief self development confidence dreams focus inspiring motivating.,

When you talk to someone who finds themselves in unfortunate circumstances, do you empathise through being able to relate?

In order to have some compassion, do we need to have experienced something ‘bad’ to understand why someone has a bad attitude or why someone behaves the way they do?

Your answer might be different to mine.

But let’s understand one thing together:

Experiencing more of life, whether personally or through observing another person or situation, might help us to have some more compassion.

We are all living in this world together.

We might be just one person.

We might be just one individual.

We might think that we’re ‘just’ one.

…But we might be a collective with lots of similar thoughts, beliefs, experiences, observations.

We might have been told along our life journey that we ‘can’t’ do something, ‘can’t’ be something, ‘can’t’ believe something, ‘can’t’ say something.

…that we just ‘can’t’.

Well here’s the thing that you might do well to remember:

You are as big as you want to be.

You are mighty.

Has anyone ever told you that you ‘can’t’ only for you to prove them wrong?  Tell me about your ‘mighty’ moment in the comments below.  I’d love to hear about it…

And you can tweet me @AllSortsHere
