Mommy Moments - Motherly Advice
“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” - Washington Irving
A mother encompasses many different roles - a teacher, caregiver, nurse, a storyteller, a scientist, an artist, a soccer coach, and sometimes even a father. In between the many different roles we tackle, sometimes we forget about ourselves. If there is one advice I could give to mothers, it would be love yourself because you can take better care of your family if you take care of yourself. Laugh often. Pursue your passion. Daydream. Meditate. Feel good about yourself because it will make you a happier mom.
And that's my piece of motherly advice. Happy Mother's Day!
