What does it mean to be a RawMama? It means that we are strong, but sometimes we're a mess. We are vulnerable and brave and sometimes we want to hide under our covers for days. It means we are confident one minute and insecure the next. We are wise and still find time to mess things up. It means that we eat healthy and sometimes we just want some damn french fries with ketchup! One minute we deserve the Mom-Of-The-Year award and the next we fear they may just take our kids away. It means we are bravely and fiercely raising our future generation and sometimes, we're afraid we simply aren’t doing enough.
It means you are a Mom - married or single, double mom, grandmother, godmother or co-parent. We are so deeply in love with our children but sometimes... we need to put ourselves first. Because from THAT place, we can be the greatest, most optimal gift to our children, our partners, and to the world. I am inviting women from around the world to join the RawMama Movement.
How Do I Join The Movement?
It’s really quite simple. Be present, and be you. Be open and raw and vulnerable and courageous. Make the tough decisions and stand proud of who you are and the children you are raising. Send words of encouragement and teach them to be their best selves. Don’t be ashamed when they make a mistake (or when you, yourself make a mistake), be proud that they (and you) are taking the opportunity to learn from it. Teach them humility and bravery. Be strong when you need to be and weak when you can no longer be strong. Live life to its fullest and experience every moment. Don’t waste your moments striving to be Mom-of-The-Year, instead fill your moments being your goddess and messy self and teach your kids to do the same.
Give your children the gift of kindness and empathy and encourage them to share those gifts with the world. Don’t think any less of yourself because you fed them french fries for dinner, be proud you’ve kept them ALIVE all day!
Be open to your raw truth and embrace it at every opportunity. This is the true definition of being a RawMama.
Enjoy The Moments!
So please share with me! Share your joys and your struggles. Share that you too, are a RawMama! I want to hear about that time that an imperfect moment became a perfect memory. I want to hear about every ordinary moment that brought you unexpected joy or I want to hear about your so-called ‘Mom-Fails’ that actually weren’t fails at all. The RawMama movement is a community - and we want to support you, inspire you and cheer you on!
