Big surprises over here in the Chauvin household. We are expecting our 3rd child!
I say surprise because… I remember when I was 18 and found out I was pregnant with my first son I was telling someone that this pregnancy was a “mistake” and she said “Heather, babies are never mistakes, only surprises.”
This is so true.
But I have to be honest, because I value honesty and sayin it like it is. When my husband and I decided to have another child I was scared shitless. This was the first time I was feeling more resistance to the idea than he was.
With every pregnancy I experience something different, joy, excitement, fear and now “what the hell did I do.” I think what scares me the most is the unknown, getting outside of my comfort zone. I think the hardest part is accepting that everything will be ok. This little surprise that jumped on the Chauvin train is part of life’s journey. It’s part of who I am and what I will become. Each day I become less scared & more curious and excited for the next adventure.
You are what you think.
Im a huge fan of Bryan Katie and her work. I use her work everyday and it has helped me tremendously through this baby process. She has taught me so much about myself and how I treat others (or at least use to). I now use her work in almost everything I teach and love everything about her, especially when she’s talking about parenting.
Weather it was the way your parents raised you or the way you raise your own children (if you have any). Its all the same. We are what we think.
When we consume our thoughts with “they should have tried harder… they should have loved me more.” We become consumed with the idea that “they” (whoever that person is) NEEDS to change. Our bodies react and we feel like shit and we ACT on those thoughts, treating the person we are mad at with anger and ultimately we are hurting ourselves.
So go ahead and get cozy with yourself and a blanket and watch Bryan Katie in action. Think about what your holding on to and why.
Leave me a comment below.
If your brave enough go to thework.com and do the worksheet Bryon Katie suggests at the beginning of the video “judge your neighbour worksheet”, Ask yourself the four questions.
Example: My children should respect me and listen to me.
* Is it true? Yes, I am the parents thats what kids do, they respect their parents.
*Do you absolutely know that it’s true? NO, I guess not, my child has their own mind and I can not know for certain who they should and shouldn’t respect. I can not control who my child respects and listens to. I can only guide them towards what I think is the “right” direction.
* Who would you be without that thought? (my child should respect me) I would feel more powerful and respected. I would be happy and more pleasant to be around.
* Turn it around? I should respect and listen to myself. I should respect and listen to my children.
Do you get now why I say we are what we think?
If we consume our thoughts with what others should do we never look at ourselves, thats where the juicy growth begins. That’s why I LOVE meditation and awareness. All the answers we need lie within ourselves. Sometimes we just need a little extra help.
