Happy Mother’s Day Month! As I mentioned last year at this time, I’m a recovering Mom-Zilla. This is my 16th Mother’s Day, but, sadly, I wasted the first 10 of them by unrealistic expectations (although my sweet hubby went out of his way to spoil me). Several year ago, I realized that I was getting in the way of my own happiness. So, I started a tradition of buying myself flowers and hosting a tea party for ME. My tag line for my life coaching business is “make life happen.” While it may seem cliche, my ultimate intention stems from a fundamental belief within me—we all have the ability to make our lives happen! Be intentional. Be purposeful. If you have a dream, chase it. If you don’t, dare to think big . . . This is why, as many of you know, I learned to swim at close to age of 40! It’s never too late. So, my friend, if you are/were anything like me, go buy yourself some flowers and create the day that makes your heart happy. We create our own realities. Last night, I bought myself flowers and this morning, I will make blueberry lemon scones. Do what you love, friend. Reframe those expectations, enjoy your family, and relish in what you know to be true—YOU ARE AN AMAZING MOM!
