People who are hurting, hurt people. Compassion is a practice and we MUST stop being stingy with it ❤️ #joyfulcourage #compassion #loveforall #ittakesavillage
Real life with the O’Roartys... SOMEHOW we had a really fun family night last night! Dinner together, valentine cupcakes (that may have helped) and the game of Life. Rowan dominated, which furthered her conviction of already knowing all she needs to know (its only a game, babe), and Ian made an impressive comeback. This is what love and family time looks like - complete with moments of total irritation and some redirection all around...

These two. They have my whole heart. Loving them deeply and cherishing the fact I can wrap my arms around them today.

Feeling so full!!
.
The cards I pulled this morning for #meditation couldn’t have been more fitting.
. 
Gratitude is my #wordoftheyear and I am overflowing with gratitude today as I reflect on the group of parents that showed up to hear me speak last night!
.
My always lovely daughter @yo.rowan was there to see her mama in her element - and it was AMAZING to catch sight of her in the back of the room!!
.
Currently feeling the balance that exists between being present and being non-attached - it’s big, big, BIG!
.
So super grateful for some super wise advice from my fellow mama in the trenches, @mickip04 - cutting the energetic cord of fear and worry!!
.
Transformation isn’t a destination, people, it’s a daily practice!!
🙏🏼❤️🤟🏼

I had an epiphany when I drew this card just now… I sat down to journal, and picked an #intentioncard as a prompt. I noticed that when I am having my hardest time with my teenager, I simply want her to see me and my experience. I want to feel validated… And when I really think about this, I recognize that in those moments, we BOTH want to be validated, we both want to feel seen, and heard, and understood. So this card today is a great reminder that often our biggest challenge with our kids, is simply being stuck in wanting the same thing…

I have been wearing PAUSE and TRUST for the past few months. If you listen to the podcast, you know that I have been exploring trust a LOT, and wearing these bracelets remind me to ground into the moment, and reflect on what I want most.
::
These bracelets are such a great reminder to drop in to what’s important.
::
I also have SURRENDER, KINDNESS and BREATHE in the shop.

So over this situation!! If you think your teen doesn’t have to deal with this, think again - or better yet, TALK TO THEM ABOUT THIS!! Our boys and girls are being harassed on a regular basis and it’s NOT OK. Our boys and girls are harassing others on a regular basis and IT’S NOT OK. We have to be having these conversations. Sexual harassment is REAL, and the mentality of it just being “locker room talk” starts young.

Do you think about your “higher self”?
..
What does “higher self” mean to you?
..
Lately I have been really tuned in to the way I respond to my children. One of them let me know that they experience me as super critical of them. When I questioned the other child he shared the same thing.
..
GAH!
..
When we know better, we do better, right?
..
So, I’ve been really working on pausing before I speak to them. I’ve been paying attention to the way what they say/do lands with me. I am practicing growing my awareness of MY experience so as the contribute to THEIR experience in a more loving, accepting way.
..
I want them to know without a doubt that they are enough, that they matter - to me and the world.
..
I want them to trust their voice, and have the courage to share their thoughts and opinions.
..
So I am leaning in, to listen to my intuition, my higher self. I am choosing in to letting go of my judgements. It’s hard!!!! But I want my kids to know, without a doubt, that I am unconditional - my love, my acceptance, all of it.
..

TOOK ONE FOR THE TEAM LAST NIGHT!! This hippie mama took the birthday girl to rap show in Seattle... Whoa! 25 years older than the crowd, kept it pretty low-key.... #joyfulcourage #parenting #parentingteens #livemusic #hippiemomatarapshow
@yo.rowan you are my favorite teenager. You are hilarious, you work hard, you know (and say) what you want, you are kind to people, you are determined, you aren’t afraid to be who you are. And yes, you are so beautiful. I am proud to be your mom. I am proud to watch you make your way through the world. I trust that you will grow and learn from every experience you have. I love you deeply. And I worked like hell to birth you into the world, 15 years ago today!! Happy birthday, sweet girl. Can’t wait to take you to that rap show tonight 😂😳🙄
