Tips to make mothers day better~~
It’s Mothers Day. What happens when you either a) don’t have a child, b) no longer have a mom, or c) the relationship with your mom is not the best? For me I dreaded Mother’s Day for years.
Many of you who have read my 2nd book Uncluttered: discovering strength and purpose in the chaos of life, know that I had a troubled relationship with my mom and she also died young. It wasn’t until I met a new friend that I finally began to face these challenges. What I came to realize is that I allowed the clutter of my heart and mind to get in the way of enjoying the day. Once I began to face the abuse and forgive, I could remember a few things to make me smile.
Here are 7 tips to make Mother’s Day Special:
- Find a positive childhood memory with your mom or mom figure
- If you have children, allow them to celebrate you
- Share the joy of another mother
- Get away and doing something totally different and fun
- Enjoy just being with loved ones
- Forgive is a big one, I have learned that my mom was probably carrying hurts and disappointments that I may never know.
- Have wine, wine is good, wine helps, ok, I may get in trouble for that, scratch that
