What has happened to my blogging? It has gone by the wayside! School is now in full swing, my son has entered Kindergarten. The first couple of weeks were full of transitions, harder for me than for him I think. That first day of school was so iconic. Kids crying, some happy, moms and dads milling about watching over their young, saying goodbye, tears shedding in secret as their kids walked away with their teacher. My tears came on and off for that entire week, as I watched my mind go backwards in time to when he was small. Stay in the present I reminded myself, as I walked through Costco trying to buy groceries. But also allowing the feelings to be there and to subside. Not to get swept away into the Bermuda triangle of emotions. It is easy to get swept up in emotion mind. Dwelling in equanimity, that is harder, but more pleasant.
A friend of mine said to me, "Don't stuff your feelings, or else they will come out sideways." I love that analogy.
