Mother’s Day is just around the corner and what do we want? We want what we always want, a blissful day with no fighting, no cooking and a clean house. Yes. The basics. A sure-fire way to get your mom the easiest no cost gift in the world. But, taking us out to dinner and a gift from the heart doesn’t hurt either.
If you haven’t been catching up on my blog, let me catch you up. I have been on a Mind, Body & Soul journey. During my journey for 2017, I have found myself more content with who I am and content that self-discovery & self-improving is a good thing. Rightfully so, we should always feel content with who we are. But, as a mother it can be easily shunned to the side.
Being caught up in who we are as a “mother” can be the very thing that takes our mind and turn it upside down. Why? We lose ourselves in being a mother that we forget to take care of us a women. If we can’t take care of us, we can’t take care of our families.
So, for this Mother’s Day, do something that is strictly for you. Take that spa day you’ve been waiting to do. What are you waiting for? Waiting for the time? It’s not going to happen unless you make time for it to happen.
A mother of young children? No extra dinero to go out and get that spa day? No worries. Make it a fun thing for the kids to do for you. Daughters? Have a special Mommy-Daughter nail salon at home. Do each other’s nails, make them feel like they are doing something special for you. And in turn, it will brighten your day. The smiles on their face will light up the room and your heart. Sons? Have a special Mommy-Son day. Suggestions, have them give you a foot message. HaHa. They’ll get a kick out of that one. They might surprise you and actually say ok. Maybe not. Ok. Have them cook you breakfast in bed. A special meal for their special Mom.
There is always an alternative to going and spending money on presents. All that matters is that whatever you do, you do what you want to do. Spend it with those that made you a mother to begin with. Because if it wasn’t for them you would be celebrating it in another way. However, you choose to spend your day, I hope it is a blessed day and you spend it with those you love. I know I will.
As a special gift from me. I am almost done with my book “Supermom, Celebrating All of Who We Are.” (took me a little longer than expected). However, I’d like to give you first access to my book. When it is ready for the press you will be the first to know & receive a FREE copy. All you have to do is subscribe to my newsletter via email. That’s it. (Limited to 400 copies & must sign up by 11:59pm PT of Mother’s Day 2017).
Have a Happy Mother’s Day!! Check out my Instagram for my Mother’s Day shenanigans.
