We all have a mother, what I reflect on mine, I have a mix of MANY emotions, my younger years probably some angry and frustrated emotions but as I've got older my mother has become so much more.
A Mothers Love is the Strongest Love of All..
My mother and I have had a roller coaster of a relationship – from wanting to never see her again to being my best friend. How things can change and how YOU can change OR reveal the truth about who you are..
I always thought I was NOTHING like my mother when I was young. I was a rebel and hated how she tried to control me and keep me boxed up. At the age of 16 I left home and found my freedom. After 2 marriages and having a baby (we he’s now 26) I discovered what being a mother meant and had a whole new respect for them. Today I love my mum and she totally understands me and I can also see how similar we are. I am counting on those ageing genes because she looks AMAZING for 91 – yes has an Instagram account, which is incredible. Since my dad died she found her own freedom and lives each day like it’s a precious gift. Her humour and positive outlook on life is inspiring and I hope to be just like her when I’m in my 90’s.
The 3 things I learnt from my mum…
Live a spiritual life .
Living a spiritual life is the most important support you can have, whether it’s through a religion or just knowing there is something greater than yourself.
NEVER be a victim in your life.
Always be grateful for what you have been given and where you are in your life. Self-acceptance is the key to true peace of mind.
Buy + deliver quality.
Quality is the most important thing in fashion, beauty, food. When you buy clothing, buy timeless pieces, not what is trending now. Good quality face cream and organic food. (Yes and eye cream on your top lip to stop wrinkle!)
