As I prepared my mind to go on leave, I shared with a coach that to pause what I’m building made me feel a bit powerless. He asked, “what about surrendering makes you feel powerless?” I paused. Hearing that back immediately provided me with a perspective shift.
I wasn’t powerless. But rather, so powerful. To surrender what was, allows for what can be. This is the time to live this life I’ve been building towards. To go all in on this new human, this new family structure and each of our emotions that, as many of us know, require such intentional time and attention. That is so, so powerful.
