On Friday, we invoke the muse of motherhood to shine her light of inspiration upon us.

Yesterday was my birthday. I always give myself the ‘gift’ of completely unplugging, so we went for a long day hike and a picnic at 11,000 ft.

For me, self love is tuning in. Nurturing who and all that I love. It’s feeling Connected (to nature). It’s respecting my limitations and setting healthy boundaries. Being gentle toward myself, forgiving my stumbles. It’s growing, striving, and caring enough to find ‘golden time’ to nurture my gifts that will ripen into gifts for others. It’s joyful confidence. And the meaning has changed…or expanded…since I became a mother. My daughter is the mountain lake reflecting this back to me. She is watching and learning herself, how to Love.

Much love to you this weekend!
