I call my now-8-year-old son Ari many things.
I don’t even think I’ve said this expression out loud to anybody – ever.
But I’ve felt the feeling of my son as my “Reset Button” for many years now.
It means I can forgive any of my past forehead-slapping blunders and crappy challenges which occurred before my son was born.
If I didn’t do (or not do) whatever transpired before I gave birth to my son, well, then I’d never give birth to my son.
And so I think of my son as my “Reset Button.”
His birth erases all regret about blunders and challenges from before August 2010 (when he arrived into this world).
I had to stumble, have my heart broken, do dumb-ass business mistakes, make idiotic real estate moves.
All of these messy events were necessary in order to create a shambly glass-shattered path which led me to my Magical hug-giver, funniest boy in the world, kindness rockstar, miracle child.
