Happy Mother's Day! I love holidays like today. Days that make us take a moment to reflect on the people in our lives that have helped shape who we are, and teach us important life lessons. Moms have a tough gig. No pay, long hours, and tons of stress. Spending the day recognizing the moms in your life (or yourself!) is a great way to give back to those who give so much.
Moms also have a lot to teach us about love and relationships. While you are celebrating the moms around you, think about these lessons as well:
▪ Prioritize. A mother often puts her children's needs first. What can she do to make sure her kids are happy? What makes her kids feel safe? How can she give them the best life possible? Taking even a smidge of this selflessness into your relationships, can make your partner feel like the center of the universe. ▪ Love unconditionally. Moms love their children in a way that transcends reality. They don't keep track of times when they've felt slighted. Moms love regardless of what their children can offer in return. What would change if you loved like a mom? Without judgement? Love without limits. ▪ Love yourself like a mom would. Throughout my life, my mother has attempted to convince me that I am the most amazing person in the universe. She would never settle for second best for me, and because of that, neither will I. Love yourself like a mom. Value yourself as a mom would. Hold yourself up on a pedestal and bring that self love and self value into your relationships.
Have an amazing day, and go tell a mom how awesome they are!
