Day #97 (General and Sacred Space)
Being present and not perfect.
When you create a space it’s not meant to be perfect, don’t strive for perfection because this may lead to disappointment and resentment. Instead sit in your present moment and soak it up.
One of my lessons this morning being Mother’s Day was acceptance.
Acceptance of my time right here and right now without having to change it. Without having to try and perfect it into something that may look like the perfect family.
My expectations of Mother’s Day morning was to sleep in and then wake up to hugs and kisses, presents and ease.
Instead my ‘sleep in’ was interrupted many times with 3yr old coming at 6.30 trying to pull me out of bed. My eldest and partner convinced him after sometime to let mummy sleep. Though he couldn’t keep away for too long and came in another 3 or 4 times.
My eldest, for some reason, put his present for me in our room and was wanting to find it before I ‘woke up’ which ended in him coming in on 3 times doing stealth moves under the bed trying desperately to find his present.
I was tired and wanted to sleep, I was getting cranky – ‘One day, just one day to sleep in’ I got up and was given presents which instantly turned into squabbling kids.
They started to fight and cry and have tantrums, one was even put into time out. I became cranky and resentful for this time that is ‘supposed’ to be special seemed ‘ruined.’
But then I stopped myself.
Stopped wanting this time to be picture perfect.
Stop believing that because my kids were simply being kids in a challenging moment didn’t make my family and my Mother’s Day wrong and imperfect.
In fact it was more than perfect. It was just what it meant to be.
I breathed it in.
I allowed it to happen.
I dropped the resistance of trying to fix the situation and went with the flow of it.
I acknowledge that there, right in that instance, was my family. Warts and all, Divine perfection in its imperfection.
This was my space.
It is what it is.
What is in your space? It is sacred. This is all there is for that time. Breathe it in and soak it up.
Once the resistance to the imperfect is released, there is nothing else but the present.
Perfectly imperfect and full of love.
Happy Mother’s Day beautiful Feng Shui Mumma’s.
