Life Lessons of a Rodeo Queen
Many of you know, I have four kids. They amaze me on a daily basis. I am moved to tears of pride so often because of their talents and wonderful hearts.
Lately though, this mother has been having a hard time letting go. Recently, I took my oldest daughter to audition for a play. Normally, this would not be a big deal. I have been a theatre director for almost 10 years. I love the theatre and am so excited for her to be involved with it. Yet, I had so many worries. What if she doesn't get a part she likes? What if they're mean to her? What if she trips? What if she doesn't get a part at all!
I was so worked up that I almost went back inside and got her. Or at the very least, sat with her.
And I learned that it's okay to let go of the reins. To let life teach and let my kids step out on their own.
You'll have to remind me of this soon...we have the Nutcracker coming up!
What have you done lately where you've let go of the reins?
