Mother’s Day was a few days ago and it always makes me think about my role as a parent. Over the years, I have written a lot about being a mother to my 3 wonderful children. As a life coach, specializing in families, parenting has been my calling. I believe we bring our kids into this world so we can learn love. When our first child is born, we discover just how much love we are capable of.
The greatest struggle of being a parent is the unrealistic desire to be superman and wonder woman so our kids can be proud of us. In this quest we are often too hard on ourselves. We focus too much on what we do not do well rather than what we do that is inspiring to our kids.
A while ago, I received this video from my daughter that shows how hard we are on ourselves as parents (as posted on Faithit). I think it is very touching and inspiring. It will make you cry and it will make you smile.
I hope that after watching this video, you will start focusing on how inspiring you are to your child and how much of a hero you are. You should be just as proud of yourself as your children are.
This Mother’s Day, think about all the good qualities you have and share them with us in the comments below.
Happy Mother’s Day!
