Get emotionally naked.
Six years ago, I chose to leave a man who wouldn’t talk. When things got emotional, he would work and work and work. I didn’t pester him to talk. I thought if I let him be, he would emerge with words and we would feel connected once again.
But he never emerged.
We are a lot more powerful than we think we are.
We created this New Year after all. Well, our ancestors did.
The calendar was a human invention. The days, the months and the years a set of beliefs society adopted as a truth to live by.
I awoke this morning to my seven-year-olds sweet, high pitched voice asking me, “Mom, how many more of the months, you know like February until it’s the end of school?”
Half asleep, I smirked to myself.
Why are you jumping so far in the future? I asked with a gentleness. Why are you counting the days until your summer vacation?
