I am so excited that we have finally found ourselves in June!
June is a warm embrace, an opening for possibility, a transition into freedom. Well, it is if you are above the equator!
June carries with is an energy, a vibration. It carries anticipation, excitement, and sometimes a bit of dread. The summer days can feel long, and we (parents) are often choose to carry the burden of entertaining our children. Summer days can also be met with curiosity and wonder – we can show up present and engaged, and continue to shift into the parents we have declared to be. We can!
This month we are going to deep dive into encouragement.
Rudolf Dreikurs says, “A misbehaving child is a discouraged child.” I would also say that a misbehaving parent is a discouraged parent!
This is a powerful come from. This takes all of our assumptions about why our children get into mischief, all the stories we create in our mind about what they want, and their illogical demands, and simplifies it. It is permission to let go of the story, and drop into relationship.
To encourage means to give someone support, confidence and/or hope – or as I like to thing about it, to inspire or inform with courage. Courage - which comes from the latin root word “cor” meaning, heart – originally meant, “to speak one’s mind by telling all one’s heart.”
When we step into that space, of speaking our mind from a heart centered place, we are really being the best version of ourselves. We are taking action that is for the good of the whole, from a place of love and compassion.
In this context, when we encourage our kids, we are holding space for them to be the best versions of themselves. It is a beautiful dance….
