Mum Power and Permission to Shine

I’ve recently realised that since I became a Mum I am stronger, and that’s not the physical strength I’m talking about, although lifting Gabriel makes my arms much stronger 🙂 I’m talking about “Mum Power” that gives me the courage to start my own coaching business and work with mums in Edinburgh. I can’t truly describe this “Mum Power” but because of it I know that I can accomplish anything I want. Of course life is not only rainbows, unicorns and happy days but holding this little boy and feeling the love heal even the darkest day.

I also think that Gabriel presence makes me a better person as he is just a bubble of love and he completely loves us and himself. All children are like that so why we loose this when we become adults? I am guilty of losing the love to myself as for the majority of my 20s I played small and settle for little. However, I always rise up and to boost my mood and energy I like to listen to or watch motivational movies and speeches and I once found this piece of knowledge from the movie Coach Carter (2005):

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” I think that once I become a Mum I gave myself a permission to shine, hope you did too! Let’s shine people!

I’m curious why I didn’t felt that before Gabriel was born. Maybe it was because I was responsible only for myself and now as I have our son here, he makes me wanting to create the best possible life for him, me and out family. Do you also feel this power? Have you ever thought why it wasn’t there before?


Until the next time,
