This weekend I'm having a little adventure on the East Coast - doing a workshop on Boundaries with the fabulous Dixie St. John near Baltimore. There will be horses involved, and it is my hope that I learn some new tools to help me show up in a new way in certain relationships. Specifically the one with my older child which has for years been more of a "friendship" than a "parent-child" relationship. In theory this is fine as your kids move into adulthood, but we're not there yet and I need to get some of my Mom MOJO back that seems to have lost its' way in the jet-stream of guilt that engulfed me post-divorce.
Is it crazy to hop on a cross-country flight just for the weekend? For one day in the ring with horses, with no guaranteed results? Ummmm if your definition of crazy is "not practical", with a touch of "financially irresponsible" then yes, yes it is.
However . . . I've done some other things in my life that definitely fall into that category that have been nothing short of life changing, which is what caused me to throw the voice-of-reason to the wind and just do it anyway!
Honestly? I've tried to make some behavior changes in this area for years - through therapy, reading books, and a solid "I can do this!" attitude . . . and it just hasn't produced the results (or sticking power!) that I want. Which is where I like to say "If it's not working - do something different!"
And that is how I landed on a plane to Baltimore, blogging at 10,000 feet.
What's funny is that this week I've had some other "crazy" whispers that have passed through . . . one that said I was going to have wood glasses (I did say crazy right?), and the other one that said I was going to pay of my debt in six months. (errrm that's crazy too y'all . . .) But here's the deal: I'm listening. Because not all of life's messages appear as a neon sign in the middle of the desert - sometimes you have to be actually paying attention to know what's coming next. Even if it seems crazy at the time.
