I write for the media but don’t read it much.  Almost 15 years ago when my first child was born I chose to go on a “media fast” to do away with all of the negative thoughts and images that the media (can) put into our minds.  I did this for my child and I haven’t looked back.

Now some 15 years later I write for the media, but on my terms.  I only write from inspiration and do so to spread the LIGHT, LOVE, and PRANA.  Period.  I told them this day one.  And they were and are down with it.

I did read some media, however, about the recent Kennedy tragedy since one of my close friends from college is close with Bobby and was close with Mary as well.  We were actually supposed to go to Hyannis Port  over Memorial Day weekend after our 25th Brown Reunion, and chose not to under the circumstances.

As I was reading some press, someone was quoted as saying that Mary “was a great Mom.  She was always at her daughter’s games.  She wasn’t one of those Moms on her iPhone.”

Okay, so here’s where I gotta step in.  Why do we have to praise one Super-mom at the expense of another?  Do we really need to bash one Super-mom to give kudos to another?  Why is a Super-mom on her iPhone a bad thing?  What if she’s texting one of her other children, who was trying to reach her?  What if she is emailing an important document for work that had a deadline and thanks to Steve Jobs she was able to meet the deadline, watch the game, be there for her daughter, AND pay the rent?  What if she’s returning a text or call from a friend or family member in need?

Here’s my humble opinion, and my intention for creating this blog on Mother’s Day four years ago.  As always, please take what you want and leave the rest.  Let’s support each other, Sisters, not bash the **** out of each other.  Let’s create a Super-mom community that celebrates each other and our differences and gives a shout out to each of our Sisters for doing her best with breath.  Let’s check judgment at the door.  Let’s lead with our hearts, not our fangs.

Lemme tell ya somethin.  That Sister (on her iPhone or whatever) has a story you know nothing about.  Cut her some slack.

Instead of criticizing, tell a story today that feels good and let this be your mantra, “Today I will give more and feel more joy than yesterday.”

 

Sending healing light, love, and reiki to the family and friends of Mary Kennedy, especially her four children.

 

Namaste,

Super-Mom of the Month
mom of 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
