Happy Mother’s Day to my mom, Ann Richardson, and my mother-in-law, Pat Gerrish. Both women are such blessings in my life…

I recently met a woman who told me that she’s kept the following letter with her ever since I shared it in this newsletter long ago. Inspired by her, I thought it might be a good message for Mother’s Day. After all, extreme self care, at its core, is about good mothering.
When you decide to take time for yourself and you feel a bit uneasy, please remember these words…
Don’t worry, you’ll be okay
Slowing down is good
Wisdom simmers and steeps and grows with time
Stop pushing yourself
You are enough just as you are
There is no need to perform
Let life unfold
You have what it takes to handle anything
Good things come from patience, not pushing
Let space and time reveal something miraculous
Accept where you are
Stop the judgment and internal lectures
Just be here
Don’t run or think or eat or scheme
Return to yourself in this moment
Where life is perfect and peaceful and safe
Take Action Challenge
Whether you’re a man or woman, please remember to be a good mother to yourself this week.
