Life Changing Love for Future Generations

"To avoid repeating the same energy-draining fights of the past 30 years and accomplish something lasting, the coherent self-empowered woman will learn to bypass reactive, energy-draining stances. She will recognize it is more intelligent and effective to do so. Taking a heart stand facilitates a whole new level of power and renewal by being the vehicle for actualizing core values, free of mental and emotional reactiveness that add more noise to a noisy system. Conscious heart intention is the first step, derived from the intuitive link and balance between mind and heart, increasing the power of both".--Doc Childre and Bruce Cryer, From Chaos to Coherence. I've noticed that some people are content living in oblivion, without goals--interlacing the threads woven into the cloth of today by past generations. This unaffected simplicity produces a deficiency towards wisdom. I've made an engagement with greatness to make my place in this world known to my offspring; my seedlings. With God's help, I hope to enrich their soil with all the nutrients of my life and experience.
This journey as a mother on the lonely road of singletown has been fancy foot-loose, as well as a grinding strain. I took a huge risk flying from the nest of the known and into the dark places of the unknown. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk more. "Choices we've been given aren't always a choice at all"...(Dixie Chicks).
I feel such impatience toward not always being able to hop onto road of where I thought I'd be. I want answer life's questions "lickety split" ! Then I remind myself (like a sweetheart that once told me) to "not change the world [my world], but to appreciate it". OK, Alana. Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart. And try to love the questions themselves. Ok... [Deep breathe] "I can do this"...
