Beloved Mother within
Yes you, *|FNAME|*
the one birthing little ones –
children of the Great Mother
Seedlings of desire
new life of Earth children
conceived through love
and businesses that are changing lives
the Mother in me,
celebrates the Mother in you.
Every moment my heart beats
because I always found it curious to have only 1 day,
just one day that is like
“oh, wow it’s ….. day,
I better get to it.
I never thought I would have a human baby
I did not feel the calling
And there I was at 40, pregnant
And the mother of Thalia,
My growth partner
I was quite content in mothering my sister’s children
my friends children,
I’ve also thought deeply over the years about my own child — about what mistakes I’ve made, about what I wish I had done differently (throwing simpler birthday parties and buying them less “stuff” for sure), and about what I’ve done well. I believe I’ve made my kids feel like they are my priority. I hope they know, without any doubt, that I love and accept them for who they are, not for what they will do in life.
What I’ve learned is that mothering requires work, thought and energy, 24/7. It requires you to show up as gentle and strong, kind and tough, and patient and unconditionally loving. It requires you to do all of this without allowing anyone to walk all over you and the love that you’re providing. And, if you have more than one child, it requires you to adjust and be creative, because no two children can be mothered in exactly the same way. What I’ve learned is that what works for one doesn’t work for the other.
But today, I want to move beyond my own intimate experience with motherhood and focus on what I believe the world at large is yearning for right now. Simply put, that is Mothering — on a big stage and on a big scale.
What do I mean by that? I mean that I believe all of the world’s children — old and young — are looking to be loved, accepted, nurtured, soothed and cared for by mother energy.
Really good mothers make really good leaders because they nurture, they build a solid team, they see your potential, and they build on your strengths, not your fears. They inspire you, they guide you, and they ask of you. Plus, they are really strong and shouldn’t be messed with.
I love that the newly elected president of France said in his acceptance speech last week that he would govern with humility, devotion, and determination, and also that he would “serve with love.”
That’s what mothers do every day.
Day in and day out, mothers serve with humility, devotion, determination, and love. May we all realize that mothering is a presidential-level task and that, done right, it can lead a family, a nation, and a world to fulfill its highest potential.
So, on this day in May, may we honor mothering for what it is: the hardest job in the world. It’s one that deserves our respect, our devotion, and our love.
Mothering: It’s a muscular job. It takes balls.
Happy Mother’s Day every day.
