I want Mamas On The Move to be about us moving forward in life no matter what's going on. Let's face it, life is always changing and sometimes in ways we could have never anticipated. I am personally going through probably the most challenging time of my life. Blogging is helping me think about the things that are helping me and hopefully maybe something I share will help you.

I've learned lately in Yoga about sitting with whatever feelings you have. I personally want to hurry passed the grief part of any experience. I'm sure we all do. I've learned to trust that the light is coming. I've tried to remember in my darkest hours that this is gonna get better. Somehow it gives me hope. When you feel so much despair or fear, it's easy to think it's never gonna get better.
Try to think of other times when you thought all was lost. Remember how things worked out somehow. I try to list all the good that can come from whatever I'm going through. It sounds cheesy, but try it. Tomorrow I'll write about what I do when I've had enough of sitting with the feelings...
