LIFE IS PRECIOUS🧡
Warning: emotional post. Yesterday I learned that my colleague and boss at Bluewolf has died. She had cancer that in 2 months won. 2 months from diagnosis to death. It shook me. Took me by surprise. In the past 2 years 3 people left us, suddenly, unexpectedly.
My first feeling yesterday was guilt. We weren’t closest in the end, we had our troubles. As the saying goes, you do not leave your job but your boss, I left my boss. Then I realized, I never wished anything bad for her to happen. So why the guilt? Then the guilt disappeared and came complete sadness. Sadness for the loss for her kids, family, and that her life stopped so suddenly.
Having a little human growing in me, I feel very volnurable all of the sudden. Realising how fast we can be here and be gone. And how much time we spend worrying about bills, mess in apartment, gossip, work, career…And how very little do we indulge in what we have. My psychotherapist once asked me, what do you believe is the most important trait of a good mother? I said, love, responsibility, sharing? She said: Hedonism. Indulging hedonistically in the time when the baby comes. Being present. Being there.
Now I am thinking, does it only apply to new mothers? Or could we apply it to every day life? Whatever we decide to do, let’s not realize how precious life is, when it is too late. #mom2be #pregnant_world #lifeisprecious #hedonism #enjoylife at Menlo Park, California
