Happy (US) Mother’s Day to ALL women. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I think about the women I’ve known and admired and the mountains they have faced. When life feels like chaos, when things are crumbling around them....I think about how they carry on, and do what must be done, all while carrying their own pain. Even when the odds are stacked against them they show up. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ How? ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Courage. ⁣ ⁣⁣ Mothering is not a title, it is an essence, a quality we carry deep within, even if you do not have children. It is cultivated in the trenches of life each and every day. On the days when you’re on top and especially on the days when you’re not. ⁣ Whether you feel like you’re failing or succeeding, know this; both can be true. For it is in our faults where the true essence of being a mother is born. In this place, where courage is born, we practice mothering with the compassion, love and grace we must also to give ourselves but often find so hard to do. ⁣ ⁣⁣ And so today, there’s an opportunity that’s really always available to us. It's the opportunity to reconnect with the presence of the Mother within. Where the true power of unconditional love lives, waiting to embrace, love, and nurture us all. ⁣⁣ ⁣ You have that power and it is the greatest power that exists. ⁣ ⁣ Women will never stop delivering the message of truth, love and hope. Through this love women heal the world and birth the most beautiful creations. ⁣ ⁣ Whether this day brings you great joy or challenge, let’s honor the mother in each of us today. ⁣ ⁣ You are seen ⁣ You are heard ⁣ You are felt ⁣ You are loved 💖
