Mother’s Day is around the corner (May 13th to be exact) and it’s a great time to tell the moms and mom-like figures in your life just how much they mean to you.
Mothers are a great source of wisdom, so we thought we’d explore a few of the things these great women have taught us over the years.
Everything Happens for a Reason
When we’re kids sometimes the smallest things can seem like the end of the world. Mothers in particular are great at reminding us to take a step back and get some perspective. Chances are you can look back and see purpose in a lot of the situations and struggles that seemed hopeless at the time.
This Too Shall Pass
Similar to the first expression, Moms are also great comforters. They tell us that nothing is forever and that eventually we might not even remember why we were so upset in the first place! A great reminder in the middle of a tough work week!
Show Me Who Your Friends Are and That Is Who You Are
Perception is often a mother’s greatest quality. After all, their experience has taught them how to navigate life and the situations (and people) we need to avoid. This wisdom states that the people we are around influence the person we become, so we should choose our company wisely!
Waste Not, Want Not
Mothers are great at reminding us that our resources are precious and should not be wasted. From finishing our dinner plate to putting items away so they don’t get ruined, they taught us to take pride in what we’ve been given.
