Somehow, we landed on the subject of career and she told me that she doesn’t want to do what I do when she grows up. I told her that’s great-she will find what’s just right and meaningful for her. I then went on to say that the reason this work is right for me is that I struggled with weight when I was younger, and that’s why I care so much about it.
I said working with weight loss wouldn’t be as meaningful for her because it’s not her issue. She then said to me “Of course it isn’t. That’s because you are my mommy!”Even though I certainly hope I have done well in passing on my own healing to my children, it sure is nice to hear it.
Thank you beautiful (from the inside out) daughter.
