“The creative process is a process of surrender, not control.”

Julia Cameron
 

“You need to trust
To surrender
To ask for guidance
Go within for the answers
They’re within you
You have the answers
All you need do is ask”

Karen Hackel
 

“Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love. We melt into another world, a realm of power already within us. The world changes when we change. the world softens when we soften. The world loves us when we choose to love the world.”

Marianne Williamson
 

“Surrender is a powerful force.”

P.C. Cast
 

“Surrender to what is. Say “yes” to life — and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.”

Eckhart Tolle
 

“One who is connected to the stream is more powerful and efficient and productive than millions who are not.”

Abraham Hicks
 

My four youngest Kids were on a disney cruise with Philippe and his Mom so I could finish my book and to say that Super-mom was super focused on writing is an understatement.   When you’re kids are occupied n happy you make the most of that time. You leverage it. I get more done now in an hour when my kids are sleeping or on a play date or at school than I did in a day before I had kids (as all the Super-moms out there nod their heads in agreement).

 

So I was at the Y in the early am writing on cardio on my phone and a woman next to me asked if I owned Prana. I smiled, said yes, and continued to write.

 

Well Sister wanted to chat. She told me all about how she does Pilates but she can’t find any good teachers and do I do Pilates and why do I do yoga n OMG she talked on and on. At first I felt resistant. I was like, “Listen Sister, I gotsta write.”. But then I surrendered to what was unfolding in the moment. I surrendered to the higher flow and let go of what my mind had “planned.”

 

And with that surrendered energy and high vibration I ironically wrote more that morning after my nice chat with my cardio neighbor than I had even hoped or planned to.

Have the best day ever!

Namaste!

Super-Mom Betsy Parsons:

I expected motherhood to change me.  How could it not?  Everything was new.  But what I didn’t expect was that motherhood would strip me bare – drop me to rock bottom – force me to face that I had lost myself – demand that I pick up the shattered bits of me and piece myself back together.  It was all at once brutal and gratifying.  I am grateful for all of it.  I have learned who I am and how great my support system is.  I learned how absolutely wonderful my husband is, what a fantastic dad he is, and what a loving and supportive family surround us.  It’s not just me who is a super mom.  It’s my husband, my mom and dad, and my mother and father-in-law who make up this super family.  Each one of us plays an important role. Life is a tremendous gift, and we were all starkly reminded of that during the first six weeks of my daughter’s life. We almost lost her.  The first six weeks of her life were spent in the NICU.  She was a full term baby but a very sick one.  After she came home, every milestone was carefully watched.   She thrived.  And I almost missed it because I was worried about what could be wrong.  It was 9 months later when I started to splinter apart.  She was walking and I was cracking – emotions needed to be expressed.  I needed to feel again.  Not surprising, but I hadn’t been taking care of myself.  I was just trying to make it through a minute, then an hour, and a full day.  I wasn’t taking care of myself.  I wasn’t sleeping well.  I was sleepwalking.  I rationalized that all of this was well within a first-time mom response (ha!).   Eventually, I was diagnosed with PTSD and got help.  I began to piece myself back together.  It took another full year for me to hear the stirrings of my voice.  It’s been over two years, and just recently I realized that I am whole again.  I experienced such joy in finding myself.    I had really missed me!  But losing myself and finding an improved version had taken hold – makes me so grateful for the journey.  It has allowed me freedom to be myself, to slow down and enjoy the moments of motherhood, to rely on my family to play significant roles raising my daughter, to trust, and to embrace the unexpected.  It’s often what I need most!  I’m so thankful for my super family – including my husband who is embracing his role as stay-at-home dad!  Collectively, we’re a super team with a super daughter.
