Mother Enlightenment




Mothers Day is this weekend and with this day it is interesting to ponder about the essence of what makes a mother, mom and a wise woman.  Mothers can guide children, can provide protection and can remain a constant force and role model to a child for life.  The word "can" is used since not all are graced with an inspirational and caring birthing mother yet this does not stop a child to form other "mother" attachments.   It is the beauty and desire of most women to provide wisdom to the next generation and to understand that the path of being a mother comes in many forms which does not always include birthing a child. There are all types of mothers ranging from women who give birth, adopt, stepmothers or being fortunate enough to be a second mom to their friends children.   The tapestry is breathtaking and fulfilling for women making choices to help build self confidence, inspire a work ethic and breath positive reassurance to young women, young girls or with girlfriends.  The joy is ten-fold, memorable and worth every moment. 

Don't Forget Your Dreams and Passions!


Along the path of  "Mother Enlightenment", it is important to not forget what drives a woman and to remember that children become adults with the end goal of forming a life that is separate from the parent.  In other words, all women must find a mission statement for themselves and build a life separate from rearing children which may include a career, a passion, a sport, a group, a loved one, travel, reading or anything that fills the soul.  Embrace yourself, thank yourself, embrace other mothers in life, remember those that have passed and more important never forget this is your life too.  Don't forget your spouse, significant other nor you in the process of raising children.




 

"Is that all there is? I thought there would be more.”


Boyhood an excellent film which depicts a family over a span of twelve years.  In many ways the film could have been called Motherhood since the audience watches the main characters age gracefully.  At the end of the film, she finds herself alone as her son departs for college and sadly wonders what has happened to her life.  Choose to not be this person.  Instead spread your wings, sail the seas and enjoy life's adventures by focusing on being a fulfilled woman who gives love and guidance to family, children and to all the women in your life.

Classic Coach for Fall

  Summer Ending "We cannot direct the wind. But we can adjust the sails." Aristotle Summer is winding down as the weather cools, leaves are turning into glorious hues and breathtaking flowers are slowly wilting.  You can feel the shift in the air. Embrace the pending change with anticipation for pumpkins, colors of red, gold and yellow, falling temperatures, spider webs and the end of summertime.  Once again, we long for cozy sweaters, boots, coats, scarves and apparel designated for a fall landscape. Additionally, we are gearing up again for another roller coaster autumn.  Many events, trips, world upsets, work environments and basic daily life is shifting with uncertainty.  Of course, we cannot predict the future, yet Covid remains intact.  Hopefully more will become vaccinated, which in turn, helps end the present and immediate crisis.  The virus will become endemic with perhaps less fear and instead similar to the annual flu vaccines. To put this is perspective, the Spani

Kendra Scott - Jewels

"A Girls Best Friend"  Jewelry is equated to icing on a cake or a finale to a play or the ending of a scintillating novel. In other words, an outfit is just not complete without a dab of bling.   Whether wearing jeans, sporting work out gear, getting ready for work, an evening out or absolutely anything, a bauble of jewels is a necessity.  Or course, it is a juggling act because too many jewels makes one appear a bit desperate for attention.  You know the person, they walk into a room and everything from head to toe is sparkling and wiggling so that all is seen are the multitudes of  jewels rather than them.  The well dressed are always sporting minimal jewels.  Check out Golden Globes 75th - Fashion Highlights   for ideas from the red carpet.   The right amount is essential.
