Happy Mother's Day!
This is a day that can bring up so much energy!
Being a mother it can bring all kinds of expectations and definitions of what it means to be a mom. And then you get to judge yourself to see if you measure up. You may even enter into feeling guilt when your kids offer to do something special for you or give you a gift, thinking that you haven't done enough or what you have done was damaging to your kids.
This may remind you of all that you have sacrificed to be a mom. I hear from more moms than you might think that being a mother is not at all what they thought it would be- and this day can be more of a reminder of all of that! More guilt for not wanting to be a mother! Can you feel how heavy this day is for some moms? And if you feel this heaviness, I wonder if it is even yours or are you picking up some of these thoughts and feelings from other moms? What is a mother to do on this day? And then there is how do you honor your own mother?
