The greatest service, the biggest job, the most powerful work you could ever do is to live a life being fully and authentically yourself.
As this gift of being a mama unfolds, I learn every day to embody this is as my truth. I look to her as a compass of what it is to be completely and totally in the world as a soul having a human experience. She has no apologies, no self- judgements, no filter, no worry about how she will be perceived based on her looks or actions or words. And she doesn’t need to look to anyone for approval or validation, she just goes, a force of source who has yet to be conditioned out of herself.
Last week she had her first day of DayPlay and as I watched her go from backyard station to station, I worried. Is she too excited? Too curious? Too strong? To eager? Too much? Are they going to allow her back? And I realized that these are all my stories, my narratives, my judgements of myself. Turns out she was a fan favorite. Siblings wanted to stay and meet her instead of going to school. She was the talk of dinner time for all the babes.
She is love and loved by simply being herself, fully and authentically. She lives in her light that brings the light so others feel the courage to shine in their full and authentic human experience.
When I talk about children leading us, I’m not messing around. They’re here to remind and return us to our essence, to play, to fun, to connection, to life as a playground and a game to be imagined into reality. And to not take anything so seriously and not be so easily offended by every single idea, word and person who does not match your jive and still be able to love heart wide open.
That’s one of the lessons my sister allowed for me to embody. One I hope to sustain and allow for my baby girl and she can continue to model for us.
Want a purpose in life? How about the purpose of being you?
