HOW I MET YOUR GRANDFATHER.
Exactly one week ago today, I got to interview my grandmother. It's something I've wanted to do since before my grandfather passed, and I'm so glad I got the opportunity. It was eye opening for me to see and understand the parallels between my grandmother and I. How many of the same "soul lessons" she's struggled with throughout her life, I also have struggled with, and in many cases, am still learning from. It gave me a deeper appreciation for the unique strengths of women. We face immense pressure from societal expectations. Yet, we usually find a way to not only cope but overcome those expectations to create new norms for ourselves. I see more clearly the person I'd like to become and how much it matters to be her. It's not just about making decisions for myself. It's about paving the way for wholeness and alignment in those who come after me.
