Find your family and you will find your joy.
This week with mercury in retrograde has been tough for our family.
There has been challenges, upsets and communication problems (very typical occurrence when mercury is in retrograde).
Some say this is typical for families and I would agree because when you love and care there will be passionate times. There has also been fun times too and has seen the family coming together with strength and support. It got me thinking about families and their dynamics. About how different all families are.
We are born into a family, our original family, but as we navigate our life path we find many more people to be part of our family, our clan. All we have to do is open our hearts to them.
The first family is the gift that teaches us, be they good or bad lessons, sadly no one can be with us forever and life can be short for some. Our families teach us who is important to us, how to navigate our life path and hopefully grow stronger with each lesson.
As we grow we adapt and we ‘adopt’ many others to become part of our family. We can have many family groups. For a family is a group of people that choose to be connected in some way, be it through sharing the same DNA or the same experiences causing you to bond and care.
Throughout your life, you will find many connections and whether you choose to nurture them and create even more family groups is your choice. Choose the ones that love and nurture you, that are supportive and comforting through the good and the bad times. I say you can never have too much family or friends, it is a choice.
Some members come and go and there will be sadness or feelings of helplessness when the choice is taken out of your hands or when your heart is hurting, but know this, when one door closes another one will open and the universe never leaves a vacuum.
Open your heart and find your family, your kin, your clan, your people, the special ones that love you. For without love there is no joy, just emptiness.
I have many ‘families’ in my world, my birth family, my extended family, my work family, my friends family and of course the beautiful family I have created with my loving husband. We have raised our children to know that you can never have too much love and they have many special people in their lives that are encouraged to share our lives and hopefully we enhance their lives.
People that know we love them no matter how often we see or talk to them and are never controlling. Love is not controlling it is a joy. Find your family, your people and you will find your joy.
