ARTICLES for MOMS ABOUT TO BLOSSOM
As a mom of a young daughter...
and a counselor/guide for many wonderful, inspiring (and at times overwhelmed and underappreciated) moms, I feel more strongly than ever that we moms deserve to be blossoming right alongside our kids. And, we need to know (and experience deep down in our cells!) that we no longer have to choose between ourselves and our kids, that our own happiness can, must, and inevitably WILL have an exceedingly positive impact on our children and family life.
I've come to see us as big beautiful holographic flowers, here to bloom into an imperfectly perfect! life of balance and fulfillment.
With our "self" at the core, I envision us surrounded by 7 "petals" of life, each in need of warm light, replenishing water and supportive soil:
B for Body (without which none of this would be possible!)
L for Love (for our kids, communities & the earth)
O for significant "Other" (or our longing for that other)
S for Spirit (which includes FUN!)
S for Success (not just the money-making kind)
O for Organization (both inner and outer)
M for Mission (our purpose for being here at all)
Since our flower is holographic, the state of each of our petals impacts the overall health of our blossom.
Since moms are living gardens themselves, I firmly believe that cultivating a garden of happy, fulfilled and empowered moms can change the world.
In this part of the web site, I'll be sharing some of the articles I wrote for Blossoming Moms. I hope you find them inspiring, permission-giving and compassion-bringing!

(If you'd like to know how you are UNIQUELY designed to blossom, I invite you to check out the Designed to Blossom Program, where we explore this flower in conjunction with the amazingly practical and profound Human Design system.)
