The one with Mother’s day meditations

While my amazing Mum is now back in Middle Earth and we celebrated Mother’s day last week, I can’t not mention her and how wonderful she is on Mother’s day.

Mum

She is a huge role model to me in the way she lives her life with strength and poise and kindness and generosity. I like to think that I have inherited a little of her adventurous spirit and it makes me really happy that we basically have the same brain and think the same way about lots of random stuff.

Mother's day love

From writing me countless letters from the “tooth fairy” when I was little, to stroking my back until I fell asleep when I was sick or going through a breakup, to saying YES you should go to Italy if that’s what you want even though you are 17 and don’t speak a word of Italian, and YES you should go to a tiny island in Canada to do a yoga course and live in a tent in the woods for three months if that is what will make you happy, my mum is such an incredible support to me and a huge cheerleader for me living my truth and making choices that are right for me.

Getting to spend the last week with both my parents was amazing, and even though we didn’t technically get to spend Mother’s day together this year, as my Mum would say, every day is Mother’s day. And after all, Mother knows best 😉

 

What did you do for Mother’s day? 

Are you similar to your Mum? – Sometimes I say something and then my dad says “that is exactly what your mother said” and it makes me really happy.

  1. In the UK, our mother’s day was in March. I am not sure why we celebrate it at a different time to the rest of the world.

  2. Such a great Mom indeed! Glad you got to spend time with your family.
    I was thinking of you when I saw this list of running routes on Strava. Maybe you can find a new path or two!

    awe. Great pictures of you and your mom.!! 🙂
    I am way too much like my mom. My family has always said it, but now even more so that I’m a mom also. Mother’s are the best 😉
