May 5, 2022- In honor of World Maternal Mental Health Day, which is today, and every day, I honor the imperfections of the world and those of its inhabitants- that’s me, you, all of us. Our instincts for survival allow us to nurture and protect our loved ones. The nervous system is constantly reacting to the evolving stressors within ourselves and within the world. Through it all, we have the inner resilience to emerge in wellness. Everyone, with help from the community, has this capacity. May springtime bring RAIN upon us:
Recognize and name our suffering
Accept and Allow the emotions to inhabit our being
Inquire and Investigate how our life is being impacted
Nurture with nothing short of all the love, gold and patience in the world
Every Mom is worth it, Every Child is worth it, Every Family is WORTHY
Every moment is an invitation to begin again. Support for you and yours is within reach. With understanding and surrender, dropping the shame and blame, YOU will re-emerge with renewed trust in your innate capacity to mother yourself and those you love.
