Motherhood is a sacred journey. It’s a process of self-discovery that every human goes through as a result of being born. The bond between mother and child is strengthened by sharing the honorable course of giving and receiving unconditional love.
“Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.” ~ Robert Browning
Even though you don’t get a manual for life, you do get a mother who does her best to guide you through all of the ups and downs on your human journey. She has acquired enough life experience to fill a manual for living well and it’s yours for the asking.
Motherhood comes with a crash course in wellness. From prevention to healing, a mother has to trust her gut to make good choices. There is nothing that compares to a mother’s intuition when it comes to the health and wellbeing of her children.
The state of being a mother is highly creative. Not only does she create a life inside of her own body, she must use her creativity at every stage of her child’s life. A mother is given endless opportunities to use her imagination at a moment’s notice.
Unconditional love is often associated with a mother’s love. It’s a way of being that is either passed down from generation to generation or it’s developed from the hands-on experience of motherhood. This kind of love fuels high self-esteem.
A mother’s wisdom is priceless. If you’re willing to listen to her now or remember the gems she shared with you in the past, you’ll be blessed by her depth of knowledge. Having spiritual insight is one of the many gifts that comes with being a mother.
A mother who learns the art of preparing healthy, delicious meals is worth her weight in organic fruits and veggies. Providing essential nourishment through whole foods is one of the many life skills a woman learns to honor motherhood.
Everyone can benefit from having a coach. A mother often fills that role by being the one who always sees the best in her offspring. If you are a mother, practice supporting your children by being fully present and paying close attention to what they do right.
HAVE A HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
