Mother’s Day is coming. And if you've had a few Mother's Days that end with you getting into bed feeling totally wiped out and resentful, this podcast episode is for you. I’m talking all about how to enjoy Mother’s Day.
Mother's Day has a way of ending up the OPPOSITE of ideal for most moms.
A lot of times moms spend Mother's Day cleaning up the kitchen after a messy breakfast in bed, followed by a lunch that's focused on their mother or mother-in-law, and then capped off by a rushed take-out dinner with all the regular bedtime routine shenanigans.
It’s time to take back Mother’s Day!
I’m just going to say it - Mother’s Day is FOR moms!
I want to help you design a Mother’s Day that actually feels good to you.
One where you get what you truly want from the day.
How do you get what you want on Mother’s Day?
Usually, two things keep moms from creating their ideal day: guilt and not asking for what they want.
I’m sharing tips to get past them both.
You also need to get clear on what your ideal day looks like and make a plan for it.
This will look very different based on your daily life, family structure and what feels right to you.
I also know that some of us are sitting with feelings of grief and loss on Mother’s Day. If this is you, give yourself a little tenderness and consider this when designing your day.
This Mother’s Day, I send my love to all the mothers. For the first mothers, the forever mothers, the motherless mothers, the childless mothers, and the not-yet mothers. I love you. I see you.
And I’m wishing you YOUR most ideal Mother’s Day yet.
