My Big Magic Book mysteriously reappeared on my bookshelf so I started reading it this morning. The first chapter of the book, about a poet Jack Gilbert, inspired this morning’s reflection about saying “yes” to the treasures we have within.
Missed recording yesterday so I’m perfectly recording Day #4 a day later. This reminded me of my Imperfect Action of the very first Mother’s Quest Workshop in April 2015. I realized in recording how pivotal that first step was, even though it seemed insignificant at the time. So...what Imperfect Action could you commit to today to explore some idea you’ve been dreaming about?
The Big Magic Moment at the workshop with Elizabeth Gilbert that sparked my belief in things that can’t be readily explained and likely caused me to make meaning of the two birds trapped in my house. This minisode is an invitation to you to look for some Big Magic in your life and slow down to make meaning of it.
A bite-sized (and out of breath!) reflection while on my favorite hike on doing what you love and where you love it in this new year and an invitation to reflect on your EPIC year in 2019 this Tuesday at my Spark Your E.P.I.C. Year Workshop. Link to register here: https://mailchi.mp/mothersquest.com/sparkyourepicyear
Today's episode is a continuation of the last one which focused on this time of year being a "stormy" one for my children and for a lot of kids.
I reflect on a bed-time conversation with my oldest about how we don't develop in a straight line, but in more of a spiral. And, how when we feel like we might be going backwards, it's helpful to realize that we are really on the next ring of the spiral, with all the new awareness and knowledge of where we came before.
Mentioned on the episode: This one featuring my son Ryan and his graduation speech draft.
Bite-sized Reflections rooted in three recent episodes on the Mother’s Quest Podcast to help me (and you!) navigate the challenging stormy times with our children that often comes just in time for Thanksgiving! Find the episodes at www.mothersquest.com/podcast
