💗 Happy Mama's Day to all the mommas out there!
We wouldn't be here without ya!
For the first time ever I am not with my kiddos on this day. Feels so strange and a little sad.
BUT I also feel so incredibly blessed to be a mom to them and to be (virtually) surrounded by friends, family and clients whom I adore and who adore me! 💕
I don't usually get Mother's Day messages from many outside of my kids and maybe besties on this day but somehow my people know and have shown up for me today.
I am one lucky 🍀 grateful 🙏gal!
And in keeping with the Stoic Sunday theme, here are a few Stoic thoughts 💭 with mothers in mind:
🔸Get comfortable with discomfort.
This begins early on in pregnancy, labor/delivery, early childhood and keeps right on going into THEIR adulthood!
🔸Accept what you can't control.
At some point along the way you can't control who they hang out with, what interests they have or where they want to live so you might as well accept it and support them on whatever path they choose.
🔸Persevere with courage and without complaint.
Again, early on in their lives we're put in a position to do just that. The no complaint part may not be as readily seen (at least in my case 😂) but as moms we persevere and courageously do what needs to be done.
Whether you're a mom, dad or neither, these also apply to you but for different reasons obviously.
Where in your life have you had to persevere with courage or accept what you can't control?
