Happy Mother’s Day to all Moms!
We at KangaDo wish you a wonderful day, and commend you for all the amazing things you do for your families!
No matter how you choose to spend Mother’s Day, here are 3 suggested topics to reflect on – when you get a bit of peace and quiet 🙂 We hope they bring you a moment of calm and perspective.
1. Yourself :
Give yourself a hearty pat on the back, Mom!
Motherhood can be all-consuming. Think about what YOU need, in order to be the person (and Mom) you want to be? What regenerates your energy and preserves your sanity: Yoga? Exercise? Meditation? More help with the kids? Whatever it is, make a resolution to schedule it at regular intervals starting now, if it’s not already on the calendar. It’s better for everyone, when Mom has a way to stay zen!
2. Your Family :
They really do grow up so quickly! Take a moment to reflect on your kid(s), and the people they are becoming. What is one thing you’d like to do or talk about with each of them? It could be as simple as an overdue heart-to-heart chat, or as ambitious as visiting a far-off country they are curious about. And, even if your daily time with them is limited due to activities and packed schedules, resolve to be fully present in the moments you are together.
3. Things to be Grateful for :
Everyday life with kids is full of unplanned, sometimes stressful events. Just when we think we’ve seen it all, something else happens! But thinking about what we have and what we are grateful for, puts it all in perspective.
What are the 3 things you are most grateful for, as a Mom?
Happy Mother’s Day!
