Done alot of thinking over the past few days, especially after my family went home and I had my mind coaching session.
I actually can't wait for my next session. I have a week between appointments so as to let anything that surfaces settle and just sit for a while, also because if we do start to work with hypnosis then I need that time also between sessions.
Numerous things came up, one of which related to time spent working in ratio to time spent with my children and husband and my role as a mother.
Lisa posted today about her daughter and how she had a moment that she needed her mum and Lisa prioritized - quote 'The truth is there is nothing more important right now than my daughter. So I wonder how many times in the past I chose to live my busy life, over the most important things in my life? I can't change the past, but I can change the direction of the future.'
This struck a cord.
Along with the following coming home in my daughters bag from Kindy today in newsletter form.

'If I raised my child again'

If I had my child to raise all over again,

I'd finger paint more, and point the finger less.

I would do less correcting and more connecting.

I'd take my eyes off my watch and watch with my eyes.

I would care to know less and know to care more.

I'd take more hikes and fly more kites

I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play

I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.

I'd do more hugging and less tugging.

I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.

I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.

I'd teach less about the love of power,
And more about the power of love.

So true finding a balance is not as easy as it seems sometimes. I love that letter your little one bought home got me thinking now(:

I can so relate to that post, having three children very close together and then a fourth with a 12 year gap between my first three, and becoming a single mum, I've sure learnt to appreciate the time with my kids, because they grow up so bloody quick and once a day is gone you can never get it back :). The time you give your kids is priceless.

Shar tell me more about the mind coaching please (sounds like something I could benefit from). I think you have my email address. Love the poem about the kids too. I think we've all been guilty of not putting our munchkins first at some time or another.
