Learning to bend and give in...
It’s been a tough fall… you may have seen my IG slowed down… I think as moms, as parents, as special-needs parents, we keep going no matter what, & at some point we are running on fumes! My nature is to push everything, go to extremes; I don’t just run, I want to run long distances; I don’t just do a sport, I want to accomplish the max; I don’t just want to be an autism mom, I want to be a super-mom! LOL! (Massive personality flaw! HAHA!) & then…. sometimes we need to just crash! .
I was reminded recently, that some people have especially deep connections between mind & body, & the body shows us what we may deny is going on in the mind. I’ve had a tendency for anemia, eczema, asthma… already, & I was getting more injuries. This summer, after leaving my family & what I feel is truly home, Denmark, to come back to a tough transition to middle school for C (as it turns out C is handling it amazingly) my body crashed. I’ve been dealing with severe anemia, and trying to find the solution for that &, coincidentally, what ended up being wheat-dependent exercise-induced anaphylaxis. I’ve had to completely reconsider my diet. I’ve had to settle for a small run now & then, not my usual. I’ve had to take a pause on work-outs, slow down on big yoga moves, just focus on breathing & intention... & learn to give in & bend (metaphorically, not literally!)
So here I am, again. Charlie, as you can see, is doing AWESOME! Middle school is ok for now with the help of some amazing support. I still want to do/be everything, super-mom business-owner , but I have to be human. The best success will be constantly growing, evolving, & going with the flow! ! Hopefully I will be back to my own self soon, with a few adjustments. .
