Welcome to another month mums and hello to the month of May.
Happy Mother’s Day to all our mumbox members – we hope you know how special, appreciated and wonderful you are.
We dedicate this month to you, our mumbox community.
For us, this quote below perfectly describes self-care. It is from the book “Love Warrior” by Glennon Doyle.
Nobody needs to be reminded of the importance of self-care more than mothers.
Sometimes we have to be reminded as women to continuously make ourselves a priority because when you truly value yourself the world reflects that worth back to you.
Mothers carry a heavy load on their shoulders and that’s just another indication that self-focus on yourself is so important. We do so much for others and yet we feel bad for taking the time to do something for ourselves.
Why is this? Why do we feel guilty for taking some time, even once a week, or 5 minutes at the start of a new day, to check in with ourselves and make sure we are ok.
We as women, and mothers, should NOT be afraid to look after ourselves and make sure that we are ok.
You can’t give something that you don’t have. You have to keep your own self ‘FULL’ first. And there is nothing wrong with that.
Nothing else works if this is not done first.
If you do, and you keep your cup ‘FULL’, you can do whatever else you need to do for your relationship, your kids or your job, or your family.
