//I AM MOTHER - LESSON #3
Being a mother is a pivotal role & a divine mission.
Everything we do shapes the lives of our children. How you show up as a mother, as a wife, as a woman in your home, on a daily basis will shape the future of your children, your marriage & yourself.
Are you a mum that shows up every day, exhausted, run off your feet, snapping at & criticising your kids & your husband? Do you feel like you never get a moment to yourself & you have forgotten who you are & what lights you up?
I am speaking to you.
I want to empower you to bring back balance, love, joy and connection to your life. I want you to understand & accept how valuable & pivotal your role is as a mother, not just in your family but in society, IN THIS WORLD.
As a mother we teach our children the power of words. How the words that we speak have power. Our words can either build up a child or tear them down. "How are we shaping our children as we speak to them? Are you like a potter, shaping the soft clay of your children’s hearts with words, with a light guiding hand at some times and with a gentle pressure at others? Or are you a sculptor, using your words like hammers, chisels & knives because you are too busy & stressed to speak kindly and exercise patience?
When your children finish a conversation with you, do they look like fine pottery in the process of being molded by your words with love & care or do they look like stone, having had parts of their hearts chipped away by negative, sharp or angry words." This is not written to make you feel shame or guilt. But rather, to help you to realise that when you are unhappy, disconnected, stressed, anxious & forgetting self love & care we become versions of ourselves that even we don't like or want to be. Yet, we end up in this perpetuating vicious cycle of shame & mum guilt not knowing how to stop & create long lasting change.
I know this feeling all too well & hid in the shame & guilt of it. But not anymore.
It is time to unite, to share our truth, to step out of the shadows, release the shame, to heal & return to love, joy, connection & nurturing.
