I want to wish you a very Happy Mother’s Day. And Mama’s Daily Dose is… what most moms want for Mother’s Day. Let’s get moving before we get interrupted.
Here’s what most moms want for Mother’s Day, and just want in general, and you don’t have to go out to the store, you don’t have to stand in line, you don’t have to make sure you get it today so Amazon Prime ensures it arrives by Mother’s Day. All you need to do is validate a mom’s experience. Moms just want to be seen, we want to be heard, you want to be understood. You want to know that it is a safe place to express how you feel how you want to feel and just feel safe in who you are, and who you want to be. So that you can examine these fears and this anxiety. Because if we don’t feel safe in whatever space it may be, then all of those feelings stay in that darkness. And they fester. And they become fear and shame. And then if they stay in that darkness, they keep growing and growing. And the only way to shrink them is to bring them to light.
A mom really needs to feel comfortable, and feel that she’s not going to be judged. Because a lot of times as moms, we just need to say:
“this is hard.”
“This is not what I thought it was going to be.”
“I’m not the mom, I thought I was going to be”
“I think that I should be…”
And that comes with a lot of guilt. But it also comes with a lot of freedom to be like cool…I got that off my chest. But we all need that safe space that we feel that we aren’t judged. But our feelings and our emotions can be validated.
Mama, your action today is to share your story. Share your feelings, share your emotions, find that space where you don’t feel judged. And you can really share those emotions bring all of that shame and guilt out of the darkness, bring it to light and see that we’re all really connected, that your emotions that are that you feel are so personal to you are really universal to a lot of other moms. And if you don’t have that safe space or a space or person that you feel is non judgmental, write it down, grab a piece of paper and just bring it out because that is still bringing it to light. And that is a safe space there. Just write it down. You don’t even need to reread it or anything. You can rip it up, you can tear it up. You can have a bonfire, burn it safely. Just bring it out, share your story, share your emotion.
