I woke up this morning feeling very resentful. Tired of doing dishes and picking up dirty underwear. No longer wanting to feel like the maid. Feeling taken for granted. Unseen. Unheard. Feeling unfair. Feeling stuck. The song of the forgotten mother.
I began to take it out on the family.
Not wanting to come home and deal again with more mess, sulking at home. Ready to release feeling angry and resentful. I don't like harboring those feelings.
And so as I drove the kids to school the sky was beginning to turn brilliant shades of blue and the sun was poking from behind the clouds.
And I was reminded of this beautiful ocean that we have. The selfless mother that we have access to. Right here. The vast. The expansiveness. The beauty. Her constant ebb and flow. Giving and receiving.
And so I came to her and I walked, bare feet on the shifting sands, I felt the space. I heard the cry of the seagulls flying free above me, the water lapping the shore. And I felt at peace. And I felt so grateful for all that I have. I am so blessed.
And then the overwhelming feeling of wanting to give. To share my joy. To give what I could, to share the abundance that I have received.
I have decided to give away more than $1000 worth of services. And it feels so good. And so abundant to give.
Stay tuned tomorrow when I share the details. I'll be giving away through my Facebook page, newsletter, my free sister circle group on Facebook, SoulShine and a few of my other favorite groups. So feel free to enter in as many places as you can!
