The day she left the struggle is the day I putted on garlands.
I was two and my mother decided to divorce. It was the best decision she ever made.

I
hear so many people around me who are in "relationshifts". They are at
a crosspoint in their relationship with their partner. Things need to
change, cause they have changed. And they wonder: “Can I divorce my
partner? What about the children? Can I do this to my children? I want
to stay with my partner for my children.”

All I can do is share
my experience. I bless the day that my parents divorced. When I was
young people said to me: “Must be hard that your parents are divorced.”

And
I always was like: “No. I don’t know how it would be if they stayed
together. I am glad they live in different homes now. I wouldn’t have
liked it if they would be fighting all the time.”

I know it was a
blessing for me that my parents divorced. I don’t know how this is for
your children, but what I can do is share my experience. I bless the
day my parents chose for passion, for freedom.

I call my mother:
Mama . That is the name I blessed her with, a name of honor
because I applaud every step she made and is making for herself into
passion.

There are days I don’t like her, and I am angry at her.
The last month I felt that I had the opportunity to forgive myself for
bringing myself into experiences and with that I forgave her too.

There
are many layers in this, and of course I feel there is stuff I can be
still angry for. I see it as a chance to open my heart more and to
embody more energy of home.

From a different perspective there
is nothing to forgive, never ever. It’s a human game we play with each
other. And in that game it’s beautiful to experience , bitterness,
the feeling of being hurt. Although we know we it’s game, our feelings
can be so real. We live here in this game. We don’t have to lose
ourself anymore in feelings of bitterness, hate, shame, feeling hurt,
pure bliss, happiness and joy. We can choose to look at our situation
from a different perspective. That gives us the freedom to open our
heart and to see the joke of it all. It’s hard sometimes to see this
when we sink into our stories, into our drama’s. It’s not something you
have to do, you don’t have to change your perspective, for me it sure
is a welcome tool to experience more freedom in our life.

Today I honor Mama Rocks for living her life in passion and that she chooses for love every step of the way.

Love Elleke
