To All Mothers...

To all mothers… It’s not about being perfect. It’s not about judging whether we are good or bad, right or wrong or whether we are here or there, it’s about simply SHOWING UP and BEING REAL. It’s about waking up each morning and merely choosing to be present in our lives and the lives of our children. Celebrate this day and every day for showing up and just being you!

YOU ARE BEAUTIFULLY AND PERFECTLY…. IMPERFECT!

We NEED to LOVE ourselves MORE and ACCEPT ourselves on a deeper level!

Truly KNOW it is okay to be REAL!

The following is a reminder of how it sometimes feels to be real….

"What is REAL?" asked the Rabbit one day…. 

"Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but Really loves you, then you become Real." 

"Does it hurt?" asked the Rabbit. 

"Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. "When you are Real you don't mind being hurt." 

"Does it happen all at once, like being wound up," he asked, "or bit by bit?" 

"It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get all loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."

Happy Mother's Day!
