Sending my love and blessings for you to be present to what is ...
Mothers Day can bring up many emotions -
Mothers who have lost children, those who have lost mothers, those with strained mother relationships, mothers with strained child relationships, those who have chosen not to be mothers, those yearning to be mothers.
To be connected with my emotions on Mothers Day I went swimming in the ocean with my angel Samsara. It was 10 degrees outside and the water was a lot warmer. I felt liberated and connected to the elements and life itself.
Parenting can be a real challenge, I am learning the hardest challenge is to parent myself. Treating myself with love, compassion, kindness. Going to bed when I am tired, eating when I am hungry, having fun when I am stressed out - simple things it seems but I struggle when there are many more things to do and people to look after.
Wishing you a day of being as you are, treating yourself as you would treat a loved one.
