Do you MOTHER yourself ?
The ambrosial scents of spring have been rolling over me like ocean waves this week.
With a little (or a lot) of spring fever lighting me up, I decided to park my entire mobile office outside on my back deck. Usually, when I notice any resistance to my usual day-to-day stuff – writing, finances, paperwork – I ask myself the question: "What would it take to inspire me?"
This week my answer was SPRING.
Not only did my move outside to work uplift my motivation, but it actually had me looking forward to the writing hours I had allotted for myself this week.
This is one way I MOTHER myself
To really take care of ourselves and tend to ourselves, we have to give ourselves the love we want and deserve first and foremost.
As we embark on Mothers's Day weekend, this year I invite you to practice MOTHERING yourself.
No matter where we are in your lives, what our relationship is like with our mothers, or whether we are a mother, mothering ourselves is the best way to love ourselves this Mothers Day.
Mothering ourselves reminds us we are our own best friends, our own fierce protectors, and our own wise teachers.
Do you have your own back?
Intuitively we know what we need. It takes a little practice – like strengthening a muscle over time. The practice is in the PAUSING, being curious, and self inquiry into what we really need and want.
Here are 4 easy and quick 'MOTHER YOURSELF' questions:
What does your physical body need to be nourished?
What does your heart need to be fed with happiness and joy?
What does your mind need to be free, clear, and inspired?
How can you feed your spirit with peace and calm?
If part of mothering yourself requires a little hand holding, don't be afraid to ask.

Here's to all the mothers that have come before us, mothering ourselves, and celebrating the beauty of spring...oh and Mother's day mimosas.
