You.

by | Dec 31, 2017 | 0 comments

There are times in this life when you feel trapped.
Helpless. Hopeless.

Stuck in the everyday. So much you can’t control.
Wondering. Worrying.

And then you breathe. Take it in.
Let it permeate your being. Feel the life flowing within your body.
Powerful. Prevalent.

And release. Let it out.
The force of the air as it leaves your lungs. Pushing you onward.
Strength. Security.

Then suddenly you see. As never before.
All the times you believed you wouldn’t make it.
So many things you thought you couldn’t do.
Overwhelmed. Overpowered.

And yet you survived. You live. You grow.
You continue moving, if only in time.
Holding on, even when it feels like there is nothing left to hold.
Resilient. Reborn.

Again and again. Accomplishing the impossible.
Damn. Look at you! You are incredible.
Beautiful. Breathtaking.

The human spirit. Never truly broken.
You continually learn, through successes and failures.
Testing. Trying.

Feel your heart beat within your chest. You are still here.
Alive. Awake.

This thing called life? You’ve totally got this.
Forward. Free.

Weekly Stickies

Don't read most of the emails you sign up for?

Us either. That is why we do ours a bit differently.

At the beginning of every week, your email will come with a new question on a sticky note.

Use it to create an intention for your week, connect with your kids and yourself, or grow as a parent. Copy the question to your own sticky and put it on your bathroom mirror, save the photo to your phone lock screen, share with a friend, or print it out as a daily reminder.

 

Let's build a parenthood you can love as much as your kids love their childhood.
