The Power of MomsPosted May 11th, 2013 by Zen Honeycutt
” If every Mom knew how awesome they are , every problem in the world would be fixed.” – Kid President
When I watched the following video, my heart giggled. My soul glowed and I thought of all the times when I stopped, looked and listened to the glory of childhood…and sometimes even joined in with a booty shake and high five. The awesomeness of being a Mom is not all the things we do, but it how present we are to what we are doing.
In short, it’s who we are BEING. Mostly I don’t take the time to think about or create that, but when I do, when I choose that Today is the Day that I am being Courageous, Creative and a Contribution…whoa, watch out world…things are done that have never been done. My kids get a Mom who is happy to build a volcano with them instead of resentful. I reach out and do activism in the world to make a future for our kids great in ways I never imagined before. And when I see other moms being present with their kids, being gentle, curious and giggly, I know that all our activism is for those moments…the fleeting, magical, moment of love and delight.
So on Mother’s Day I invite every Mom on my way-up-there-on-a-pedestal-community MomsRising, to really get how awesome you are. Not because of all the doing, but because of who you are being. You are being your kids champion. You are being Courageous, Creative and a Contribution. You are the Gateway to Adventure! You are the most awesome person on the planet to at least one person and in their eyes, you can do anything. Look at yourself through their eyes on Mother’s Day…because theirs is the most beautiful perspective in the world.
