Here's One Thing Every Mom Needs to Do - at Least a Little Bit! by Gail Harris
If you have a newborn you‘re excused. But for the rest of us moms, there comes a time or a moment when we need to LET GO! Even for just few minutes. It’s hard. I know. We’re like the Hindu goddess Kali, the lioness who will care for her cubs with a loving tenderness yet kill anything in sight that threatens her young. But nature showed her how to let go, little by little, too.
Giving your child the right amount of independence is good for them. It shows them that you trust them, which shows them that they can trust themselves. And trust you. And if you letting go is so good for them, it also has to be good for you. Life works that way. You see, when you let go, you receive more than you may realize. When you let go, you actually receive yourself – a stronger, wiser, more loving you.
