Being a mom inspires me to be the best me I can each day. I know there are 3 little people looking at me in every move I make. I can fail at every other job I have, but being a mom I will give every bone to this position. God trusted me with these 3 beautiful children to lead. I will do my best to lead with humility, grace, integrity, and gratitude.

Being a mom has taught me how to communicate better. Having a teen son who’s on the very low end of the spectrum encourages me to be patient, articulate, and show through action. A daughter who is in the middle with a bubbly artistic personality brings out my creativity. Meeting her and speaking her language has pushed me outside my comfort zone. My baby who is sensitive, loving, and wants the best for everyone increases my empathy and compassion towards others. SINGLE MOM SELF CARE TIPS: SIMPLE AND EASY

In an effort to pull the best out of them I had to learn how to effectively communicate my feelings, thoughts, views, and love. How my husband and I show love and affection teaches my kids how to love and show affection. It inspires me to give them an living an example.

However, how I speak to myself first they are paying attention. The choice of words, tone of voice, and interactions inspires me to be mindful. How I may think I”m showing up verses what they interpret can be two different things. That inspires me beyond the home.

Being a mom inspires me to go after every dream and goal I’ve had come in my head. I can’t tell them be all they can be, without doing so myself. I don’t believe in do as I say, and not as I do. Children learn from our actions, even the bad decisions and choices we make. Allowing my kids to see me do what I love and live my life, will show them all things are possible. It inspires me to tap into my creative side.

Being a mom inspires me to think about things differently. Not only from my perspective, but from others as well. How I handle conflict resolution, discomfort, pain, bad news, financial problems, or any other life matters that arise I keep in mind they are watching. This is where children pay attention the most. How do we handle a set back, death in the family, disagreements, and how we bounce back shapes how they will approach said situations.

Being a mom absolutely inspires my self care. I must be in the best mental shape possible to show up for them fully and give them what they need. Keeping my physical self care visual shows them the importance of taking care of their temple. Having my “me time” as a mom, allows everyone to feel free to take a moment. Budgeting and planning gives them financial literacy early.

Lastly, being a mom inspires me to give back. Even when it’s my last of anything, showing grace and gratitude will always come back. Everything isn’t about me and neither in life. Most importantly, giving time, love, and an lending ear is more valuable than any dollar. #MothersDay2022

I hope you are inspired where ever you are!!!!!!

Mother’s Day is tomorrow. How will you celebrate Mother’s Day 2021? Last year we all had to rethink and come up with a way to honor our mommies. This year some of us are able to gather, while others, unfortunately aren’t able to. No matter if your mom is hear in the flesh or the spirit you can celebrate her.

If you are a mom yourself, please pat yourself on the back, TWICE!!!!!! You are doing an amazing job with your kids. As moms we make the best decisions possible with the information we have. We aren’t always going to get it right. But who said there was a book on being a parent. Also who said parents knew everything or was right all the time. That is the beauty in being a mom. We teach, love, inspire, motivate, and grow. And those are some of the best lessons we can teach our children.

What are your family traditions on Mother’s Day? Will you all do something differently in 2021 due to the circumstances? For me, I just like to enjoy my family intimately. I am not a fan of going out to restaurants or having some grand event. I’d prefer ordering out, because I don’t cook on Mother’s Day, and having a great time at my Moms house. So often when we decide to go out or have an event of some sort, we don’t get to enjoy it sometimes. Because we are so busy entertaining.

Everyone can have a great Mother’s Day 2021. Your circumstances or situation doesn’t define how you choose to enjoy the day. If you are a single mom you can enjoy the day. Mommies who are still nurturing their babies in the womb can celebrate. Bonus moms, surrogate mommies, mother figures who inspire others, and even aspiring moms can have a good day.

The word of the day is LOVE. Focus on giving and sharing love. The love your mother gave to you, that makes you feel good, show to someone else. The love that you hoped to receive, give away. Whatever you define or desire as a mothers love, spread, share, and give it away. But make sure you are the first person to show some love to.

Happy Mother’s Day!!!!!! Have a great amazing day.
