It’s easier to talk about the cats growing up than admitting that my kids are growing up.
I’m having an emotional week or two observing my life changing in front of me and I know it’s all normal and great and I’m still struggling.
My baby went to middle school orientation today. My baby girl went to Freshman orientation and my 1st baby started driving!! They’re doing exactly what they’re supposed to do and I’m freaking out. I want to step on the brakes and slow down and we’re going full speed ahead.
I always dreamed of being a mama and yet I never fully imagined them growing up and doing their own thing, even though my goal in raising them was to raise independent, kind and compassionate thinkers. They’re on their way and I’m feeling a little lost. I’ll find my way again, I’m just in that transitioning phase, redefining my role and I don’t like it very much. I’m proud and happy for them and figuring out what the next phase looks like for all of us.
We’re all growing up and figuring it out as we go, bumps and tears, frustrations and laughs and opinions and all.
Are you in a transition phase? How do you create peace as you go through the change? Wishing you happiness.
