These Soulful Sunday blogs go out weekly on Sundays to be used as a place to step back from the hustle and bustle and explore what your soul might be saying to you. Some folks use these as journal prompts and let loose amidst pages. Some folks bring them to the kitchen table and jam over coffee. Do you, boo.
“Love mixed with space is called letting go.”
– Sakyong Miphan Rinpoche
Ooof. I’m a clutcher before I’m a let go-er. When we love someone or something, it can be difficult to let them go. We don’t know how to do it. Worse, perhaps we don’t want to. A parent must add space as their child grows to allow them to find their own rhythms and ways of discovery. This does not lessen the love. It looks different. It sounds different.
Love. Add a dash of space. Notice what happens.
