Mother’s day is quickly approaching, and I wanted to talk to my mommas out there.
I am partnering up with Maui Jim® today to challenge you, mama to change your perspective, and how you view yourself.
When you wear Maui Jim® sunglasses, you see the world better no matter where you are (totally not even kidding!). Their sunnies are patented glare, UV protected, color enhanced and have PolarizedPlus® Lens technology.
The quality of my Maui Jim® sunnies beats out all my other sunglasses. And it’s not only because the view is amazing (seriously, the difference is crazy good) but also because they are comfortable and lightweight. Jordan has a couple of pairs and carries his everywhere he goes, which is rare because he’s a minimalist guy.
Don’t ask me how a pair of sunglasses got me thinking about how we mom’s view ourselves. This is going to sound clichÈ, but I guess I was taken back at how crisp and clean I can see with my Coco Palms that my mind starting running on how I have been missing out on such a great quality pair of sunglasses. And then wondering why it’s taken me this long to own glasses this nice.
This was totally one of those car moments when the kids are screaming in the back seat, and you drown everyone out. I always seem to have these moments in the car. Haha!
As a mom, it’s very easy to sacrifice our style, wants, needs, and desire for our families. And rightfully so, we are the nurturers of our families. Momma makes everything better. When the kiddos are sick, who do they want? Mama. When something is lost, and no one can find it, who saves the day? Mama.
We are consumed with our to-do list, stressed out, worn out and have had enough. And when we look in the mirror, we are unhappy with it all. We tend to be so harsh with ourselves, and how things are going, or whatever is going on in the current moment.
We look in the mirror and can point out five things we would like to change before noticing our beautiful bodies. Our “flaws” overcome any good.
Today I want to challenge you to take a step back and change your view. You are beautiful, those stretch marks, are beautiful. Your body has endured the imaginable. I want to challenge you to put on a new pair of lens (or so to speak) and instead of seeing the flaws first, see the beauty.
Because you mama are bold and beautiful!
