Celebrating Motherhood

This journal entry was written in my personal journal on Mother’s Day 2018.

Today, in many parts of the world, it is a celebration of motherhood.  Something that I personally celebrate throughout the year with special moments I get to spend with my mother and watching my kids enjoy their time with Grandma.  I am grateful for these moments.  Grateful for her still being here so we can enjoy her presence.  Grateful to be living close by and to be able to visit whenever.  Grateful I get to chill on the sofa with her, while sipping tea and watching Family Feud on TV.  The best is when she makes me a panini grilled cheese on pita sandwich.  Yum!

When it comes to Mom, it’s really the small things.  Being a mother myself I get to witness the other side of the metal.  The thrill my children get out of surprising me with Mother’s Day gifts makes my heart melt.  For me, it isn’t about what they make me or do for me on that day, but rather the excitement I get to see in their eyes when they present me with my surprise!

This morning I was treated to my morning coffee and breakfast in bed.  I shared the breakfast and enjoyed the coffee.  But the best part was having the whole family in the bed, dog included, laughing and enjoying a moment in time.

As challenging as being a mother can be, I do my best to enjoy it all.  I’m not the perfect Mom.  I don’t think such a thing exists.  I know deep down I’m doing a great job.  And every once in awhile I get reminded of it by those who get to watch me being a mom without really knowing me.  Being told by my children’s Jiu-Jitsu Sensei that I do a great job and my children are so well behaved is just one example of how the effort I put into being a mom are noticed.

All moms are great moms and to me all women are moms.  Whether biological or not, to humans, or fur-babies, or simply a mentor for someone in need of it.  All women are mothers and so I wish all women a happy Mother’s Day.

May Baydoun did all the “right” things and followed all the “right” steps. But she knew deep down that there was more to life than getting an education, getting married, having children... There had to be more than just the cards you are dealt. Watching her children play, she overheard her daughter saying “... just like mommy”. The sudden realization that her children, her daughters especially, would grow up to be just like mommy frightened her deeply. She was the role model of what a woman can be in this life and at that time, May wasn’t satisfied with who she was nor what she stood for. She was nothing more than her mother had shown her to be... A woman in her thirties, married with young children putting her dreams and ambitions on a permanent hold to raise a family. In that moment, she fully understood that she could not expect her children to become more or better than she was willing to be herself. It was a harsh reality check; and in that moment, she made the decision she would become the best version of herself she could be because she HAD to be the best possible role model for her children. That powerful decision, her awakening, meant that she could no longer accept the average life she had led up until that point. She set out on a wild journey of deep self-discovery. Not only of who she was, but who she wanted to be and how to become that woman who had that life. Along the way, she made the discovery of the law of attraction and suddenly her whole life made sense. The good luck... The bad luck... The past decade of her life. It all made sense. She had created it all. And if she could create it, then she could dis-create it and re-create something new. She began testing the theory and in no time was proven right. Fully trusting the Universe, she allowed herself to be led on the journey. She has had the beautiful blessing of learning from so many great thought leaders and piecing together the many pieces of life’s intriguing puzzle. Over a decade later, she has discovered her life purpose, and is living it fully. Now that the student has become a master, she teaches others the principles that have led to her radical life transformation and how they too can leverage (or hack) the Universe to get anything they want... without breaking any of the laws!
