Looking forward, looking inward

Dearest Universe in 2015,

With your arrival, comes an incredible milestone: it has been a decade since I have had the honor, the blessing, and the test of a lifetime: parenthood.  It was New Years Day 2005, when I arrived home to Maine from the Carolinas with Sammy.  A few years later, by some miracle I still marvel at, I gave birth to my first born, but my second child, Marcel. Then just a few months ago, I welcomed Shrek’s commitment to me, to us, into our lives, and ours into his.  In yet the most radical act of my tenure on this earth in some ways: to chose to marry.

This was a decade of remarkable change, transformation and surrender to all that you intended for me.

You have been BUSY with me!

Here is my ask of you now in 2015; bestow upon me the grace, the patience, the trust, and an ever increasing capacity for love, so that I may begin to detach a little from all of my attempts at controlling the outcome of all these remarkable lives.

Universe, let this be the decade that I may reap the benefit of arrival where I have earned the right to, and departure where I have determined it is time to.

Most importantly, guide me closer and closer to ways that I may use my experience, voice, and honesty to participate more fully in the disruption of oppression in  every way that you deem I am able.

It is time, and I am ready.

Yours,

Mama C/ Catherine

    What an interesting piece – written as a letter, but it’s sort of a prayer to the universe that acknowledges your own power to change more as your life and loved ones need you to.
