This Mother’s Day we want you to remember that it all begins with you.
It is not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority. It is necessary. You cannot take care of anyone else, if your needs aren’t met.
So, this Mother’s Day, don’t wait for someone else to take the reins and read your mind and give you want you want and need. Either plan it yourself or be very specific with how you see the day going.
Do you want to spend it with your mom?
Do you want to spend it with your kids?
Do you want alone time to just take a hot bath and read a book?
Do you want a big family brunch or a walk on the beach?
It’s time you seize your own happiness. You are amazing. You are beautiful. You gave life. Now use today as a stepping stone to remember to take care of you too.
Happy Mother’s Day you beautiful, strong, brilliant mama.
P.S. If you ask your husband what he is planning for you for Mother’s Day, and he responds with “you’re not my mom” just remember that someday, your son will hopefully say the same thing to his wife. Then laugh, tell him he is a good son, and plan your own best day! Not that this has ever happened in our house.
