Time to change… Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Passive!

That’s been me for most of my life, particularly when dealing with my formidable mother. As long as I didn’t rock the boat, I managed to dodge the sharp end of her tongue, or the flat, unyielding palm.

Passive Cath, however, is changing.

At the moment I am reading a thought provoking book, “Women Who Run With Wolves” by Clarissa Pinkola Estés. It contains much wisdom, insight, and positivity, told through age-old tales. There’s much I can learn from ancient women’s wisdom.

I am ready to be a wild driving force in my own life. No longer deferring to to my mother’s idea of who I should be, how I should behave.

No doubt she will chose to seen this as aggressive!


Today’s wonderings are brought to you via a prompt from Linda G Hill. Pop over and have a look at how to join in the fun.

  1. Go you! 🙂 Another book you might be interested in, if you haven’t already read it, is D.G. Kay’s “Conflicted Hearts: A Daughter’s Quest for Solace from Emotional Guilt.” I own it, but I haven’t read it yet. There are a lot of positive reviews on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HDTPPUQ/
    All the best for your journey, Cath. ❤
