As a mother, I understand the importance of uplifting our children daily. As a mother I also know how much we also can use uplifting words for ourselves. Sometimes the world around us forgets that before motherhood we had our identities as a woman first. Unfortunately, mothers tend to lose those identities. I can only speak from experience so let me explain. Yes, motherhood is one of the most beautiful journeys to be a part of. Yes, changes that you encounter can be for the growth necessary for your journey. However, to lose yourself in the process is not safe. It’s not safe yet many of us have lost ourselves. As women we deal with society’s standards of “perfection”, relationship encounters and so much more. So when we transition from not just being a woman but a woman that’s someone’s mother, we are carrying double standards and encounters to make sure we fit the profile. Then we have the people around us who simply don’t understand what we deal with. So sometimes talking to them sounds like complaining. Meanwhile we are fighting for our life and our children’s. It is natural for a mother to want the best for her child. So we fight to do so and oftentimes forget that we also should want the best for ourselves. Pouring from and empty cup means you are drained. What’s poured in is poured out. Since most of the times only a mother can really understand this conversation, I believe we should start uplifting each other up more often. Mothers are the backbone of their children and they need to be uplifted so that they may have the strength to pour positively into their children and themselves. If you are a mother I would like to pour into and let you know that I see you. I would like to let you know that you are deserving of love, peace happiness, joy and respect. I want to encourage you and remind you that you don’t have to be perfect, you can just continue to do your best on purpose. I would also like to thank you for being a vessel to add value to this world with a piece of you.
From one mother to another, be encouraged.
I also have a #mommyandme bundle for both you and your mini me to be uplifted…
Once again mom, I see you. Be Encouraged
