I think is could spend a life time in your blogs – I think I have spent my life time in your blogs. I love the description of an unbreakable holiness and retrieving an unbreakable holiness.
A large part of our self confidence comes from the love and protection we had when we were children. It wasn’t my mother that gave me that it was my Dad and when my Dad died there was nothing it was as if I had been orphaned. My sister and my husband believed in me and helped me but it was my husband alone, day by day who had to hold me up, or watch me cry.
Now I am much stronger. I have, to some degree absorbed my loss and carry my Dad with me so I will always be reminded of the spark he ignited in believing in me. Now it is my turn to believe in myself fully, perhaps for the first time in my life. I have told my husband I may come out on the other side of this stronger than I have ever been. He is a little scared. 🙂
I think this is an important decade for women. As more women around the world stand up to take care of themselves and each other and more men welcome them as partners in all aspects of life what possibilities will emerge in our society?
MM…huge hugs to you. I’m so touched that you’ve taken the time here and shared from your own story. And what a beautiful encouraging compliment.
You’re so right about self-confidence. When we miss what we need, even just from one key person in our tender years, the struggles can be profound. I’ve had to find my way into more and more self-confidence after years of so much upheaval and positive (yet highly challenging) change. I don’t know where I’d be without those who gave me the courage to ask the questions I needed to ask, and to own the internal shifts from being dependent on toxic dogma to claiming my sacred truths, sloughing off the dead layers.
What a bounty you have in your husband. There really is a beautiful place for healthy dependence. Where would we be without the love?
So with you…it is an important time for women and I’m holding out for the birth of a new and richer era of authentic growth for women (and men!). We could have us a revolution of empowerment (the real kind) and solid, love-in-action.
I sure hope to see you around here again soon. But I know we’ll at least connect on FB. Isn’t the internet wonderful? Oxo…
