1.   To slow down.

2.   To slow down, even more.

3.   To enjoy slowing down.

4.   To say “Thank you!” and allow others to do for my children and me when they offer.

5.   Who my true friends are.  (“A true friend walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”)

6.   Just how loving my children are (“Let’s sing to the babies!”  “Can I watch the babies move?”  “I can’t wait to hold the babies!” “Phoenix, be gentle with Mommy’s belly…the babies are in there!”).

7.   What real, complete, and utter exhaustion feels like.

8.   How to distract myself from intense nausea and exhaustion, and find gratitude.

9.   How difficult it is to be ridiculously hungry but not be able to find one single thing that is appetizing.

10.    How patient my husband is when I absolutely positively must have watermelon and it’s 9:50pm on Sunday night.

11.     How to consume small amounts of food every 10-20 minutes from the second I open my eyes to the moment I fall asleep—and chew well.   ;)

12.    How much love there is in the world.

13.    How much love I have to give.

14.    How little fear I have left after A LOT of yoga (“OMG TAYLOR!  You’re having TWINS?!  Are you scared?!”   “No.”).

15.    To truly appreciate the miracle of creating life and be present with it.

“The greatest thing she’d learned over the years is that there’s no way to be a perfect mother, but a million ways to be a good one.”
“My mother is my root, my foundation. She planted the seed that I base my life on, and that is the belief that the ability to achieve starts in your mind.”

Super-Mom of the Month

Super-mom Kim Cherelli

 

WOW!! Supermom of the month.    I was shocked to say the least when Taylor mentioned she wanted me to be her super mom of the month.  Me?  I never thought there was anything super about me.  I’m as average as average is, nonetheless I was and am honored to be thought of.

 

I met Taylor a year ago during Teacher Training at Prana Power Yoga.  I was instantly drawn to her energy and knew I was in the right place.  I didn’t know why I decided to become a yoga instructor nor did I know what I was getting into.  You see prior to signing up for the 8 week teacher training I think I practiced yoga about a dozen times.  I woke up one day and said “ I think I’d like to be a yoga instructor”  I proceeded to ask my yoga instructor at BSC how one goes about becoming an instructor.  She told me about Prana and here I am a whole year later.  I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for other than the fact I was looking for “something” the something that yoga instructors have.  I’m learning every day and I’m a work in progress but this is a journey and I am excited to see where it takes me.  The teacher training was an emotional and beautiful experience.  As quickly as the thought popped into my head to become a yoga instructor the same happened for my understanding why.  I’m understanding I am where I am suppose to be right now at this moment.  Stress is not as prevalent as before and I’m understanding people a bit better.

 

So, a lil about me.  I’m a single mom of one 18 year old son.  I don’t consider myself any different than the next mother. I never found raising a child difficult because it came naturally to me. .  I raised him simply the way I wanted to be treated.  I always knew I wanted to be a mother. I was 24 when I found out I was pregnant and afraid to tell my mother.  I knew what she would say or better yet the look or her face would tell me how disappointed she was.  Most people know my situation and how my son was the result of an abusive relationship, however I wouldn’t have change a thing.  I had to go through that for my son to be born.  If I didn’t then he wouldn’t have been born and I can’t imagine my life without him.  People congratulate me for being a single mom  my son does too but I don’t think I deserve any special credit.  Putting aside all my heartache and struggles in my life, it’s nothing compared to what some are going through.  I do count my blessings and I feel blessed to have been given this gift of motherhood.  There are those who want children and can’t   I am so very thankful and I can’t say it enough…..It’s truly a blessing.

“where you are at this moment is where you are suppose to be”

Sending love and light to all
