I just wanna make my momma proud!
How do you know you made it? What does success actually look like to you? For many of us, it's being able to improve the lives of those around us...especially OUR MOTHERS! As I get older my grind has gotten different. My why is bigger. My drive is crazy but to be honest...I just wanna make my momma proud!
As Mother's Day approaches I've been reflecting on all that my mom has done for me. She's been the rock of my family. Her love runs deep! She's been my number one supporter since forever. And she's not perfect! Which is dope. Because I look to her as my template for life. The fact that she's so dope and so flawed at the same time is inspiring. It helps me to give myself a break!
One of the biggest things I've learned from my mom is that Motherhood is not a death sentence! Motherhood is actually more of a reason to Be VAIN! As mother's we often lose ourselves. Taking care of our kids, husbands and careers somehow take precedence over taking care of ourselves. Not cool! You don't have to lose your sex appeal. You should not lose your wild streak! And you definitely don't have to give up on your dreams.
Motherhood has given me a greater appreciation for my mom. It's also given us another common bond as I lean on her to be part of my village. My kids are better because of her. I am better because of her. She pushes me to be an example for my children to show them that they can and will be all that they dream!
Be Excessive. Be VAIN.
I dedicate this post to my mommy. I dedicate my life to her actually. She gave me life and she's also given me the blueprint to live this life! All that I do is to ultimately make her proud.
Happy Mother's Day Mommy! I love you!
