Mail bundles remind us of the times we've checked our mail to find a stack of total junk. Not one decent letter, no invitation, no postcard, no bill...

As Winston Churchill's quote shows, many people get sucked into the trap of believing there is always a way of fighting out of the problem. The irony is that fighting or resisting a problem often leads it to persist.

My Exit

My exit wasn't an exit. My exit was a retreat within my soul. My exit was the reconnection with the stillness within my heart.

In every successful small business owners life there comes a point when they need to decide if they want to expand and turn their small business into a mid size business or if they want to stay a small business. When I had to make that decision, I decided to let go instead.

The most significant was a recurring dream that spanned 12 years. The tiger dream started when I was 6 years old and concluded just before I turned 18. This dream had such an impact on my life that it propelled me forward in a way I could only have imagined.

I've Only Forgiven Twice in My Life

Mette Ivie Harrison

I realize how often I've held onto pains that other people inflicted on me for days, weeks, even years. It was partly because I did not know any other way, and partly because I felt justified in my anger. But it was also because forgiveness does not always come as easily as it did in this one instance.

When Mary Liciaga, a 46-year-old divorced mother of five grown kids, first started telling people she was going to an ashram in India for two weeks -- by herself -- they all tried to talk her out of it.

When I trust it, life can be just like water, a constant source of unconditional support. And in that place of trust, I open up to receive all the good from life.

When the Second Child Leaves Home (for the First Time)

My second child is heading off to a gap year program in a matter of days, and last night, (let's be serious -- in the wee hours of this morning), I cried. Not just cried. Boo-hooed. Sobbed. Wept. Lost it. Shed a river of tears.

Letting Go of Perfect

Letting go and focusing on what really mattered -- like actually getting to the grocery store or capturing that fleeting idea I had -- didn't seem like an option. Perfectionism was the only choice, and it was so easy to agonize over every little detail that didn't measure up.

Jennifer S. White | Posted 09.08.2015 | Parents
Jennifer S. White

I find gratitude for the children I can hear playing in the adjoining room, with my husband this morning as I work. And I secret away for later, when I need another reminder (because I will), that by being true to my feelings and fears and joys, that I'm giving my daughters permission to do these same things within their lives.

My Son and the Other Woman

I don't like my son's wife. I don't like that he spends Christmas with her family. I don't like that he does whatever his wife wants. My son is 10 years old so, technically, there's no wife. But there will be, and I like to be prepared.

A parent's love is one that wants the best for their child. In this moment, I am amazed by how quickly my child is growing and, by the person she is fast becoming. One who is bright, responsive, creative, strong and sassy, clear in her communication and centered as she walks through life.

The Gift We Cannot Keep

That child you love -- the one you raised from creation that centered your universe, rocked your world and drove lava into your veins at the same time -- yeah that one -- you can't keep him. You have to let him go.

The Biggest Crier on the First Day of Kindergarten Wasn't My Daughter

Beth Grady | Posted 09.03.2015 | Parents

It was my first back-to-school morning as a parent. You'd think I'd be doing the happy dance all the way to the car and heading straight to Target to celebrate. Instead I was speed walking with my head down.

Summer is sputtering to a close. It's almost September and all across the country, the nest is emptying once again for another set of parents. It's been years since our youngest child has left for college, but I remember that time well. It was a year of painful adjustment.

Saying Goodbye to My Daughter the First and Last Time

"Hey!" my husband yelled, iPhone poised to take one last photo. They turned around, and my daughter had what I call the smile of fear. In the photo, you can see she is looking off camera -- at me. My husband snapped the picture, she turned back around and was gone.

Why do we as parents have so much trouble "letting go" of our children once they complete their teenage years and need to assume primary responsibility for their lives?

Wasn't this what we all hope for? That our kids become these self-sufficient beings, capable of walking off -- first down the hallway, then down the street, across town, and ultimately out of our household to create another -- without us?
