As we all prepare for another busy holiday season kicking off with Thanksgiving, I have been spending a lot of time thinking. Less about what gifts I’ll be giving, and more about what and who matters most in my life. This has been a challenging year for me medically, emotionally, financially – basically in every way I’ve struggled this year. I’ve doubted myself, questioned whether or not I was a good mother, wondering my capacity as a single mother, wondering if I am smart enough to be out in the work field, and wondering if my lingering anxiety will ever subside. This has led to a lot of sleepless nights and unanswered questions.
This holiday season I am reminded on what matters most to me, which is what I knew all along. My daughter. Her happiness. Her health. Her love. Her smile. Her breathe. Her witt. Her sass. Her kindness. She provides me with such incredible insight into the world, encourages me to work harder, to push through my insecurities. She motivates me to just be as I am, and when I look into her loving brown eyes I know that the love I am providing her is enough.
