SAYING GOODBYE TO MY KIDS
Saying goodbye to my son is never easy.
It’s the hardest thing I face in my life.
Last year, when I made the decision for one son to live with his father in Tamworth and grow up in the country like I did, with grandparents, aunties, uncles, cousins and parents. I chose that life for him, because he deserved support from so many that I couldn’t provide at the time. I was barely able to affording to feed myself!
I made the decision this year for my other son, London to live with his father, when we were talking about him starting school in Byron bay and he’s such a daddy’s boy it’s not funny! I chose that life for him too.
Lets face it, I’m a wanderer, adventurer and free spirit, so traveling to see my children and making beautiful memories with them is what works for us right now. The kids are happy, I am happy and they are so loved and supported where they are.
It hurts when I have to say bye and also hurts knowing they don’t spend much time together, but far out it’s amazing when they do!
Ive learned to focus on the good and it actually manifests more good in the world. If I focused on the negatives, our little family wouldn’t be thriving like we are now.
So before I say goodbye to my children, we talk about what we are grateful for, the memories we created and what we are good at!
It shifts our mindset to gratitude, love and self belief.
I take a deep breath and walk away and as much as my heart aches, it processes, releases and recovers faster than before.
If you focus on gratitude, it really does transform all areas of your life - I’ve seen it transform mine, so trust me when I say it works!
