Karmen, my daughter, started preschool this fall. It’s 2 days a week for 90 minutes. Every month we get an email with action photographs of the kids doing activities. The first time I saw the photos, I felt strange. I realized it was the first time I saw Karmen doing something without Alejandro or I there. This was the beginning of the separation. From here on out, Karmen will continue to move away from us and onto her own path.
True love is an act of faith and surrender.
I’m defining true love as a selfless love – meaning that it transcends ego, who we think we are, and moves from a desire for the other to be fulfilled. True love can live in all kinds of relationships – parent/child, friends, intimate partners, business partners, and colleagues.
Back to the statement – true love is an act of faith and surrender. When I have experienced true love – my decisions were based on what I thought was best for the other, regardless of whether or not it served me.
