Last week I reached my goal to create 52 (not so traditional) mantra's to help anyone navigate parenthood. Namely, the first year.
I created these mantras week to week based on my personal experience with parenting. Some week's I needed strength, support, a shift in my perspective or a push to slow down and have fun. I wanted to make sure that I was not only doing the best I could with parenting, but that I was soaking in the moments, modelling presence and patience and was able to connect and grow with my family through this time. I worked these mantra's week by week and encouraged my readers to try to use them with me. I wrote them on our family calendar, where I could see them every day and remind myself of that week's sentence to use if/when I felt I needed it.
A BIG thank you to anyone and everyone who took the time to read one or all of my mantra blogs! Inspiring, motivating and supporting parents is what I was meant to do. I hope these mantra's help make your week or year a bit simpler and allows you to flourish in your connection to your little one(s). By taking care of yourself, you set the stage to take the best care of your whole family, and that is something to be proud of!

This wraps up the mindful mantra (momtra) series. Will I write more one day? Maybe. For now I plan to focus on my new weekly blog series Mom Crush Monday better known as MCM. In this series I will interview mama's and try to deconstruct what moves and grooves they have in hope's that it just may help another mama out there. Sharing is strength and I plan to continue to unite women in motherhood. So let's share our secrets, our rituals and inspire each other. If you have a mama you think is killin' it at parenting, send me an email and nominate them to be interviewed. So stay tuned for that!
