Thoughts on a thriving life.
We are not perfect but for some reason we hold the standard of perfection as something we can reach. The image of perfectly behaved children, with perfect hair, clothes, grades, sports and school attendance dangles before us. Think race dog chasing the mechanical hare around the track, always out in front but just out of reach. No matter how hard we try, it is never attainable. The image of perfection eating away at our soul as we wake each morning feel lost and tired. Perfection lost the moment we face our children who don’t fit “the mold” and find words flowing from our mouths we wish to take back.
So if perfection isn’t the answer, what is?
Perfection condemns me for I will never measure up.
Intentional invites me to be me, the best me I can be.
Being intentional invites me to show up in my life and in my parenting, to live and parent with purpose and to deliberately care for myself and my family in the choices I make, thoughts I think, and actions I take.
Living intentionally doesn’t just happen. It takes tools. It takes support. It takes deliberately and purposefully taking action to make it happen.
This is my heart. To give parents the tools and support needed to live and parent intentionally. Each month I invite people just like you who want to grow and strengthen their parenting skills to join a small group of like minded parents on a journey to make simple, yet profound shifts to our parenting that create the space and ability to parent intentionally.
