From the beginning, I think I knew deep deep down that I was carrying a boy, but convinced myself it was a girl for fear I would not be a good Mama to a son.
I think I doubted my ability to raise a kind and loving little boy. The task seemed too overwhelming. We live in a world where boys are told to “be strong”, “don’t cry”, “you can’t wear pink, “toughen up”, and “don’t play with dolls”. Who came up with these ridiculous ideas? I would never say these things to my child. Society has it all wrong. Men need to know how to nurture too. Men need to know how to express themselves. Men need to feel confident in who they are and trust their feelings.
As soon as Zaja was in my arms, all of these thoughts and fears disappeared. He is perfect. He can be sweet, sensitive, tender, loving and beautiful while still being strong, brave, handsome and bold. We all can.
I am honored to have the beautiful opportunity of connecting deeper with the divine masculine. To raise a happy boy. A kind boy. I feel it is incredibly important to the Earth. To humanity. Showing Zaja to express his emotions, tune into his feelings and open his heart. We don’t need more strong men. We don’t need more tough men. What we need are more emotionally capable men.
As a mother, I am shaping the future of the world through shaping my child. Because I am not only raising a sweet little boy, I am raising a great man. And I must teach him the most important lesson of all-how to love. 🌞
