Hello, Beautiful Mothers, Fathers, Creators, and Growers,
As I think on this upcoming day of gratitude and celebration for the amazing mothers and mothering figures in this world, I am struck by the galactic capacity of our being. We were created from the tiniest blueprint with the most far-reaching capabilities– capabilities that may not always feel accessible. It is my wish on this day of gifts and admiration that we also give to ourselves permission to be daring. To explore and accept the universe of possibility and capacity that lives within us.
There are many ways to offer and receive recognition. On my personal journey, the most powerful one has been offering myself recognition in front of family or friends. Every morning, after waking and cuddling, but before we venture to the kitchen, my children and I meet in front of our big mirror. Here, we practice self-recognition– short and sweet on a school day– and we often surprise ourselves with the power and joy of the experience.
Recognition and acknowledgement are a powerful practice of self-love, and it begins with I AM.
Muster the courage to say anything and everything that speaks to the truth of your galactic capacity.
