Amie wants to sing with a band, Kara is finishing her first novel and Zoey dreams about starting her own art business. One has a house full of teenagers, another is care-taking for her aging parents and one just had her first child. Each of these women has so many family responsibilities that she feels she needs to put her dreams on hold. Maybe you can relate.
This month as we celebrate Mother’s Day it is important to acknowledge the true mothers who give more than they take, the non-narcissists who have empathy for their children and parents. Wouldn’t it be nice to give them the gift of permission with a colorful reminder that it’s okay to follow their passion? To tell them—It’s okay to take care of yourself because self–care is NOT selfish.
Remind them—It’s okay to write the truth and let your voice be heard.
Encourage their intuition—It’s good to trust your gut when pursuing a new path.
And make sure they know it’s okay to ignore the flying monkeys along the way.
Allow them to shine
And make art with the pieces with their one, unique and precious life.
Then thank them for being brave.
Everyone deserves to Breathe—especially the thoughtful, empathetic, Mothers
and the special adopted moms in your life.
And while you are thinking of others,
don’t forget to do a little breathing and dreaming for yourself.
For all the moms out there who are juggling so many things
day and night to serve your family,
Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!
