Wolves and The Five-Minute Journal
January 6, 2020

Oh. My. Gosh! Were you raised by wolves?

What did I do wrong?

How could I have failed so miserably?

Please tell me I’m not the only mother who has suffered these thoughts.

And then my son goes and does something like buy me The Five-Minute Journal for Christmas. Restores my faith in the next generation, motherhood, and life in general. It’s a journal based upon positive psychology, recording graditudes at the beginning and end of each day. Writing positive affirmations. The Law of Attraction.

He knows me! Somehow he’s aware of what I like and what makes me tick and how I live my life and what I do and who I am at my very core. And he was thoughtful enough to act on all those things.

I started my journal today and my first gratitude was for my son who can be such a goofy, little wolf at times. And yet, such a thoughtful person. And loving daddy. And a guy who has chosen a profession that helps others live their best lives.

His nature? My nurture? For whatever reason, he’s okay. Good even. Kind. And for that, I’m so very grateful.

The Universe is guiding me on an incredible adventure: my Plan B. I write here to share bits of my Odyssey, hopefully to inspire, encourage, or extend the virtual hand of friendship.

When I quit teaching in 2014, I could never have imagined the growth I would experience through travel, writing, reading, therapy, and introspection.

I believe human connection and compassion will go a long way toward our healing, and the best way to connect and feel compassion for one another is through the sharing of our stories.

Thank you for joining me here. I appreciate you and may we grow together.
