Rise UP.

When you meet anyone, remember it is a holy encounter. As you see him, you will see yourself. As you treat him, you will treat yourself. As you think of him, your will think of yourself. Never forget this, for in him you will find yourself.
— Marianne Williamson

Parenting is the ultimate opportunity to practice this truth. Each day our children invite us to step into this 'holy encounter' and meet them with sacred equality, not authority. I can't control our children I can only guide them with love. I do my best to navigate these muddy waters everyday and yet I fail all the time. All I can do is lay down my ego, practice forgiveness and RISE UP again!

It also helps to find time in the day to take a few deep breaths, throw on my airpods and blast Lauren Deigal’s Still Rollings Stones song! Any one else just love her music?


Side Note: The quote is from one of my all time favorite books, A Return to Love. And not sure if you heard but, Marianne Williamson is running for president!
