Week 10: Moving out or moving forward?

Today I’m writing not one but two posts. One for week 10 (I couldn’t do it on time last week), another for week 11 (this week).

It has been in a mix-match feeling for mom (her mom).

On one hand, she (we) is (are) proud of her. She has become such a wonderful, extraordinary, responsible, carrying a young woman.

On the other hand, she feels like half her heart has been taken away from her.. Her only child, her best friend, her confidence has moved out of her side to start her own independent life…

You can feel the emptiness of the nest…

In my case, I have two on my own. A boy and a girl. They both are also 20 years young. (They are twins!)

In my case, I lost my kids in my divorce in 1998. I fought to be close to them, God knows how hard I’ve been fighting this fight… Unfortunately for me, my daughter doesn’t want to know about me, my son… Well, he has been very polite… But is a totally different story… Let’s get back to my stepdaughter…

The way I see it, she didn’t move out, she only moved forward. it is part of life. CHANGE is part of life… If we want to live the life we want, we need to embrace change as an essential part of our lives…

I still struggling with my DMP, I know in my bones I’m not living the life I’m destined to live. I also know in my bones I’m moving forward… perhaps not at the speed i would like to, but I’m moving forward.

Two days ago, I asked a friend of my how he has achieved such a tremendous success in his life. his answer couldn’t be more providential:

  1. Associate to the correct people.
  2. Avoid distractions…

That is precisely why is so important to have my DMP ready. That is why is so important to Mastermind. That is why is so important MKMMA.

Today, my stepdaughter is moving forward. it is time for me to continue my journey again…

PS. Tell me about your own journey. Perhaps we have more in common than we could possibly imagine.
