My son is coming home this evening! He is 14 (will be 15 at the end of the month), and he’s been in Ontario since August 6th visiting with a friend.
Remember when we were kids and we didn’t have ‘helicopter parents’ and we were allowed to go and have adventures! Some of my biggest and best memories are from that age. I just talked to him on the phone and he has made so many friends over the past two weeks he almost doesn’t even want to come home.
I am so happy for him, he will remember this trip for the rest of his life. He decided he wanted to go, and then he worked and made his own money and planned his trip. He had schoolwork to finish before booking so he got that all done and off he went.
As much as he’s had a blast and worked hard for what he wanted and learned some good lessons about how to get what you want out of life; he’s given himself a bigger gift than he even knows. He now knows that ‘anything is possible’. It wasn’t that many months ago that going to visit his friend was just a pipe dream; he didn’t have a job or any money or any idea of how to get there from here. I’ve taught him about how to manifest what he wants, create his life, how to work with energy and use the Law of Attraction.
I do think he was a little bit nervous (not that he’d ever admit it), but he did it anyway. He looked at the ‘big picture’ of what he wanted, not the little steps like flying alone, being away from home in another province for 2 weeks (his first time away from home for any length of time).
Too many of us go through life never having adventures. We think about the small uncomfortable (“scary”) steps and stop before we even get started. We say “Oh, that first step (in my son’s case, flying alone), is too scary, think I will stop now so I don’t have to get out of my comfort zone”. We never get anywhere by stopping ourselves before we even get started.
When I first had my ‘baby’, I made him and myself a promise. I promised that I would allow him to be his own person. Yes, its my job to guide him and teach him how to navigate this world, but who and how he wants to be is his choice in the end. He is a human being, not a possession. I trust I raised him well and that he has a good head on his shoulders. I feel I can trust him with his (age appropriate) adventures. The more he spreads his wings and fly’s the farther he will go in life. I am so very proud of my son, brave, willing to do what it takes to get what he wants….usually, (he is still a teenager after all).
What about you? Do you challenge yourself?
Do you have adventures, or do you try and stay in your comfort zone? Do you allow yourself to have experiences? Do you leap or play it safe? Can you see what you want in the future and are you willing to do what it takes to get you there?
How has it worked out for you?
