May means warmer weather, flowers and Mother’s Day, some of my favorite things. Happy early Mother’s Day to all Moms, and all those who are like a mom to someone.
I believe a mom is more than a lady who gave birth to a child; it is a person that gives their heart to others. I bet you can think of phenomenal women like that. I can think of a whole bunch! I want to celebrate all of these ladies because sharing your heart isn’t always easy.
Sometimes when we share our heart it gets hurt and causes us to want to protect it and not give it away again. I want to encourage women and men (yes men…I know you give your hearts away too, even if you don’t want to admit it to the guys!) to give your heart away daily. The joy it will bring you will far outweigh the pain of the broken heart.
I have had people in my life I have loved, depended on, cared about, invested my time, my energy and given my heart to that have hurt me. People I thought would be there for me forever. Yet, they aren’t and their actions hurt my heart. Yet, if I allow their actions to cause me to not give my heart to other people, I would only hurt myself. I am blessed that I have people in my life that are giving, loving, caring, forgiving and kind that warm my heart. I chose to focus on them. Yet, I could have missed out on some of the joy they give me, if I allowed those that hurt me to control me. I want to encourage you to start to think and list the people in your life that give their hearts to you.
I know you have some…and this exercise will inspire you. Plus, you will find if you give your heart away more, you will receive more. So give it away!! This May celebrate all of the people in your life that give you love, like a caring mom. Why? When you focus on the good, the kind and the love, in your life, you will be happier and have more goodness. This has helped me overcome pain, see the joy in my life and move forward to see the goodness all around me. Celebrate the love of a mom, as corny as it may sound, it will make a difference.
From my heart to yours,
