Mother’s Day affirmations
Happy Mother’s Day to all mums who do their very best, unselfishly, every single day. I am forever grateful to my own mum for being so supportive, loving and such a great role model. She isn’t perfect, and that is something I am very grateful for today in my own role as a mother. We are so good at putting pressure on ourselves, comparing ourselves and trying to be super women today, therefore I believe that vulnerability, weakness’ and imperfections are extremely important to show as well. We put enough expectations on ourselves and walk around feeling guilty about all the things we didn’t manage to achieve, represent and do. I would never want my children to grow up feeling that kind of pressure from me. So, showing our shortcomings is only healthy I think.
And also, a big thank you to my amazing kids who are my true saviors in life. They teach me to live in the moment, to feel alive, to see the beauty in the simplest things, to love and value myself more and to appreciate every person’s uniqueness. They are so purely optimistic, curious, open minded and liberal. My kids are superstars and I’m privileged to be a part of their lives.
