There is so much fear surrounding technology and children, aka: "screen time". Unfortunately most parents are making their decisions based on these fears. I've spent much time these last few years working through my thoughts around this limiting term and what it implies. I have come out the other side of fear somewhat unscathed and clear headed and choose not to use the ever frightening catch phrase "screen time'.
What was intended to be a month long exploration easily turned into one year. Which was not what I expected. Ha!
Expectations is first in my monthly series of observations surrounding thought forms, words and beliefs that influence the way I am as a parent and partner to my children and husband. In my last post I dove into a realization I had recently: if I truly was to Follow the Joy I need to unpack and discover where certain beliefs and thoughts really come from. If they don't serve a joyful life then I need to let them go and replace them with something that does.
This past month has been an interesting one. Things have been shifting and changing, as they always do, though this past month I’ve felt a deep cavernous yearning I hadn't felt in a while. I wasn’t sure what that meant until a day or so ago. I had an idea pop in my head that had my heart racing, my stomach doing flips and twirls. Excitement overtook me.
