All is Well in the Moment

Uncategorized May 21, 2020

When I REACT to my child in their most vulnerable moments,

I am called to explore within.

Do I have unmet needs?

Am I hungry, tired, thirsty, lonely, sad, scared?

Am I unidentified neurodivergent, therefore experiencing extremely fragile central and pheripheral nervous systems?

Are my sensory systems dysregulated or different?

Am I triggered by unmet, unheard, unhealed trauma that is mirrored back to me via my child's struggles?

Am I cultivating and carrying an energetic presence that my child's behavioural response is rising to meet?

Are parts of my identity being challenged or called into question?

Do I fear judgement, disapproval, rejection and abandonment from my own friends, family and professionals if my parenting approaches don't please them?

Am I projecting into my child's future and making assumptions about who they'll become as adults based on small moments of vulnerability and struggle today?

When I am still,

When I pause,

When I breathe,

When I take a moment to tune in,

I return to the moment.

I come home to the now.

And when it all feels too hard,

I move from this moment

And into the next.

One moment at a time.

I find small ways to meet myself,

To find calm amongst the chaos.

I observe my thoughts and my feelings.

I watch them come and go

I detach and let go of all judgement.

I know that when I return to the moment,

All is well.

I return to my senses.

What can I see?

What can I smell?

What can I taste?

What can I hear?

What can I feel?

What does my child need in this moment to be okay?

What do I need in this moment to be okay?

We get to decide.

All is well in the moment.
