This is the 2nd time that a little bird has flown from our nest to college. I think this is one of the hardest parts of parenting. Letting go. Other parents this week told me to go that I should go out and celebrate! I’m not sure why I’m so sad & have that empty feeling inside:
Is it because it makes me realize I’m getting older, life is short & precious, is it because it makes me want to go back & change some of the things I did as a parent? I know it’s part of the cycle of life & that every parent has to go thru it, but damn it’s hard! You just hope that your child takes and processes all the love, guidance, inspiration you’ve shown & conquers the world. All I can do is allow myself to feel these different emotions & practice my yoga breath to help me get thru it! Have you experienced this for yourself?
