I raised four boys… am raising four boys (teenagers now). It was not and is not always easy but I found my quiet spaces amongst the chaos.
If if I could do it again… I would have been better at self care on a bigger scale beyond just moments. It would have saved us all a lot of pain and grief. I would have been better at taking care of me. I would have said no more and I would have gone away more often.
The very concept of being more present, fully invested was a beautiful idea but I failed to recognize that we can not give from our empty cup.
