Yes!! That's right...it's my little grandson...Aiden James!
I'm gonna be a grandma! 👵
How is this possible? I mean---am I even old enough to be a grandma? Turns out...YES! WOOHOO! A resounding YESSSS!
👉What's so funny about this is, that I used to think of grandma's as...well, OLD! It's so hard to say that, but it's literally what I thought. But then again, I remember thinking...WOW, will I EVER graduate high school? So, what does that say about my thinking?
It tells me my thinking was a tad messed up! 🤣
My perspective is just that---MY perspective. There are SO many other perspectives out there. Does it mean mines right? Or wrong? Nope, it just means it's DIFFERENT! And we, as a collective are ALL different, yet we are all the same. We are all unique and that's what makes this world go round.
Holding space for another's perspectives was SO hard for me sometimes, yet so easy when I quit "clinging" to my truth. Right? I mean, what is truth? Is truth based on facts or just opinions/perspectives... my own programming? When I look at things only from MY lens--I get tripped up. It causes unrest, turmoil, aggression, finger pointing, sadness, depression all kinds of low level vibrations.
But when I take a step back, take a breath before passing judgement, it ALWAYS serves me well. In the end, I'm gonna grow old. The question is: when I grow old will I be wiser or more bitter?
