I was talking to my daughter (who is also my business manager) about life, and how it has unfolded for me. In an attempt to be unbiased (she IS after all, still my daughter…) I was coaching her about the opportunities she has that I didn’t have at her age. As her mother, I want so very much for her. When I was her age, I had been married 8 years, and she was 7 years old. I skipped the part where I discover who I was and jumped right into marriage and motherhood at 20 years old.
While that all worked out very well after 29 years of marriage and raising two remarkable children into productive adults, I do see that I could have done it differently. What I want for my children is that they find joy and happiness within before they commit to sharing their life with another. And I know that it can work the other way around, as it did for me.
I believe that our path is always perfect, and that the choices I made using God-given free will were exactly right in order for me to experience my life. It’s a test of faith to believe that the same thing is true for my children. It doesn’t always feel that way. They will make their choices, and build their own kind of life. I get to be their cheerleader, their occasional confidante, their teacher, their mom – and yet ultimately they will do what they will do. It’s the natural order of things.
My choices have created a remarkable path, and I have faith that theirs will too. Really. Well, usually.
