Hello and Happy upcoming Mother’s Day (for those who celebrate it this weekend)!
Mother’s Day for many is a time of honoring and appreciating our mothers and what they have done for and given to us.
Offering a twist on this, I think it’s a fabulous time too to appreciate how we have mothered ourselves and lives; how we have nurtured, cared for and brought our own selves into being.
So often we focus on what isn’t going well, or how we are flawed as individuals and parents, and we rarely hug ourselves and say “Job well done!” When we do allow in some praise, it’s usually because others have given us recognition for something outward we’ve done.
Today, I’d love us to support a new tradition of being grateful for ourselves just as we are, flaws, foibles, and all.
Here’s an inner affirmation that I find helpful to say:
“I am a loving and nurturing mother to myself and others. I always do the best I can. I am aware of my gaps and dedicate myself to my continued growth. I am growing in my love and acceptance of myself and others each day.”
Don’t beat yourself up for what you aren’t. Let your light shine through (it’s YOUR time to shine – check out this video for inspiration).
And finally – don’t forget that YOU ARE without a doubt so very special, important and valuable in this world.
So in honor of Mother’s Day, embrace your power to create positive change in the world – and lovingly “mother” yourself and your life by:
Take today to honor not only your beloved mother and all those who have nurtured your spirit, soul and creative endeavors, but also yourself. Give yourself the same amount of love and care that you lavish on others.
And here’s a shout out to my beloved Mom, who at 91 is still amazingly positive, supportive and nurturing. Mom is the one who instilled me with indefatigable confidence – who always told me, “Kathy, you can do whatever you put your heart and mind to.”
Thank you so much, Mom!
And thank YOU for reading and sharing, and being part of my community. I’m so appreciative!
Happy Mother’s Day with love.
