Mother’s Day: Is Your Mom is Always Right?

Mother’s Day: Is Your Mom is Always Right?

Flowers for mom

Is your mother always right?

The older I get the more I find this to be true…..

Does this strike a cord with you?

Here’s a story from my life:

When I was younger and getting ready to declare a major in college my mother urged me to be an English major. At the time there were no other majors if you wanted to be a writer. My mother saw me as someone like her; someone who thought deeply about things. And like her, I excelled at writing (she was an assistant editor at a newspaper before she married) and she knew that I loved it.

My father was a mechanical engineer who spent his entire career working on huge building projects in Manhattan. He even worked for the Trump organization at one point. He witnessed engineers who also had business or accounting degrees rise through the ranks of the some of the biggest construction companies he worked for. He saw me as level-headed and business minded like himself and so he urged me to major in business or accounting. I will never forget him telling me, “The way to the top is to be an accountant.”

Who do you think won out?

I don’t know what I thought “the top” was but at the tender age of 18 I wanted to please my father and get “there” and so began what would turn out to be several decades spent in the financial world. I was successful and it turns out I was level-headed and business minded but oh how miserable I was as a “round peg in a square hole.”

My mother was right and I wish I had listened to her.

Clearly, a kid who begins writing little books at age 8 and wants to duplicate and distribute them throughout the neighborhood was meant to be a writer and my mother knew it. Call it a sixth sense or mother’s intuition, I guess you could say my mother knew me like a book!

Was my dad wrong?

No. He also saw something in me that was true. I was then and still am business minded but the best way for me to express this talent is through writing and sharing with you not in a corporate management job.

The soul of who you are really meant to be is usually pretty obvious to the people who know you well. I guarantee your purpose isn’t hiding from you. It’s your desire to please and lack of confidence in yourself that gets in the way of listening to that intuitive voice within that knows soo well what you were born to do.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

Mother’s Day: Make Peace with Your Mother

Mother’s Day: Make Peace with Your Mother

“My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.” –George Washington

Mother's Day

Do you wince when someone says, “My mother is my best friend. We talk everyday and do everything together?” Wish things were different between the two of you?

If so, this post is for you.

This Mother’s Day make peace with your mother. 

For the last several weeks I had asked my intuition for a dream with an answer to a decision I had been grappling with regarding the care taking of my mother. If the situation continues to be intolerable do I stay or do I go?

I had a dream that my mother passed. I was filled with regret that I hadn’t made peace with her before it was too late.

In this the dream I received a flash of intuition with the intuitive insight that she had spent her entire life reacting out of her own pain, and that it had been anything but her intention to be so hurtful.

We had been locked in a dance of egos….if only one of us had the courage to rise above the ego things might have ended differently.

When I awoke from my intuitive dream I understood that we are here to love one another at the soul level despite human  flaws.

Neither of us is perfect. It is time to end the perpetual sparring match. Time to change my thinking.

While I didn’t get the answer I expected or needed my intuition had given me a clear message:

Make peace with your mother. Do it now before it’s too late.

Love is all that matters. Wounds, hurts and bruises dim the light of love for as long as you allow them to. Make the effort to wipe them away as often as necessary by forgiving and you will see that the light never stopped shining.

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers, daughters and sons included. Here’s to hoping you can make peace.
