Project Life Documenting your Feelings

Some weeks aren't about what I do, but how I feel. Having a child is a long goodbye, and I don't like it. So 

I'm happy to be able to share how I feel with my daughter in a way that she'll appreciate more when she's 

older. Right now she really is too busy to worry about it, and that's the way it should be. 

Motherhood is letting go, even when you can't

Journaling reads:

Some weeks feel like a quantum leap, I sense the push and pull of your evolution. Your growing inside, so

quickly and I’m both in awe and devastated by the trajectory I see you on, leaps and bounds. At the

same time you call me Mommy and curl up beside me, you come back to the safety of being my baby.

But we see it coming, your future, high school and beyond. I’m mourning, wondering how I’ll let you go.

As you reject the symbols of your childhood, your new wings push against me. I hold my breath because

I’m not ready, but this isn't my choice. This is your journey, all I can do is stand back and watch you soar.

 Now that I'm finishing my second month of Project Life I feel like I'm making it my own. In the beginning couple of weeks I had no idea what I wanted to say or how I wanted things to look, but now this is starting to feel really good. And I look forward to doing the week.
