The last few weeks have seen some hardships for my small but growing family. With the decision to finally transfer my older daughter into a new class, we had our share of anxiety as to what the transition would be like for her. The ‘not knowing’ phase before the decision was made was probably the most anxiety ridden part. Removing Julia from a situation that was not improving and that was not being properly addressed was the best way to help our little one out. Once she started her new class, it was clear that a positive shift had occurred. While I’m sure any change produces its fair share of stress, especially on little ones, my little girl has shown how truly resilient we humans can be… how placing our trust in each other can truly make or break a situation. In her new environment, I have seen her adapt to new and positive energy from her lovely teacher and classmates. Today, I caught a glimpse of her bursting with joy, running in the playground with her new and also old friends after school. She could not have made her mother happier or prouder.
This post is really meant for my friends who are going through their own experiences lately of illness, loss, fear, anguish – I can only imagine what you are going through. I know our concerns at this time are trivial compared to what some of you are now going through. I hope your days become lighter with each moment and each breath that accepts and then let’s go. Light may shine through slowly, but it will surely find its way to you.
